A naughty cat nearly died after sneakily chewing hair elastics and pieces of string from toys which formed a huge mass in its stomach - and needed life-saving surgery. See SWNS story SWSCcat. A naughty cat nearly died after sneakily chewing hair elastics and pieces of string from toys which formed a huge mass in its stomach - and needed life-saving surgery. Waffles, a five year old tabby, lives a sheltered life as an indoor cat and his doting owners provided him with scratching posts and pet toys to keep him occupied. But Waffles, who lives with his brother Kevin Bacon, began seeming out of sorts, and was taken to the vets by owners Ryan Gallacher, 27, and Danielle Carlin, 26. The couple were heartbroken when the vet suspected their moggie might have cancer - an operation revealed a large mass in Waffles' tummy was actually hair elastics, string from cat toys, and yarn from his scratching post.
