Help! Cat ate dryer sheet!

My cat just ate half of a dryer sheet, and I'm a bit concerned. My other cat ate a 10 inch piece of ribbon last year and required surgery. Has anyone ever heard anything about cats getting into trouble with eating dryer sheets?

Well, I see you just posted a little while ago, so if you read this right away, call your vet NOW. I don't know what those sheets are made of. There's two issues: the chemicals in the sheet, and what it's made of -- whether it's digestible or not. If this is acted on soon enough, vomitting can be induced. If you wait, then you just have to cross your fingers and hope.
