Q. Can flocking be poison to cats? if so what would be the signs of poisoning?
DR. MASSIMO ORIOLES, DVM, MRCVS
A. Flocking can cause toxicity when significant amounts of it are swallowed.
The signs would be mainly gastrointestinal (vomiting, diarrhea, constipation and possibly intestinal blockage). You may notice other signs such as depression, lethargy, inappetence but are usually secondary to the gastrointestinal ones.

A. Most flocking materials are non toxic to cats, but their ingestion could cause irritation of the stomach or even intestinal blockage sometimes which will manifest itself as vomiting and lack of appetite mainly.
