Hey, everyone!

This morning I caught my cat playing around with my Melunas. There are a few bite marks, but she didn't manage to make any new holes. I cleaned them a lot with soap and also boiled them. Should I clean further or is it ok to use?
Anyone with similar experiences?

Thanks!

I'm sorry to say I don't have any advice (although boiling for a few minutes was probably sufficient, imho) but it must have been kind of hilarious to see your cat playing wih your cup. Did you take pictures?

Just the mental image makes me giggle =P

I was so mad that I didn't, actually! Now it's kinda funny, haha.
Here's the little devil:

I think it's safe :) I mean either way, your cat(s) had all their vaccines and are still up to date? Most illnesses/diseases don't transfer between cats and humans.
The main concern would be visible dirt, bacteria and worms possibly. Intestinal worms can live or be found inside and around the vagina. <- this is uncommon but possible.
I think boiling takes care of all of the above, but not quite sure.

I'm not trying to worry you, it's very likely fine as it is. :)

Yeah, she's had all her vaccines and everything.
I'm mainly concerned about bacteria, considering she's always licking her butt.
I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

I'm sure you're fine. I have to hide my cup from my cat because he thinks it is an awesome toy!

I know, right.
My cat won't play with the toys I buy her, just the ones she steals from me! haha.

I've often thought of buying my cat her own human things to play with/sleep on. Like a remote control, some hair ties, maybe a bic lighter or two, cups to drink out of, etc.
