|Hi Marley. Something like that happened to Chaucer twice, but both times it appeared that he got a piece of bone stuck somewhere in his mouth; he was pawing at his mouth, but not gagging. This first time he let me look, but I couldn't find anything. The second time he ran and hid somewhere and he came back fine a short time later. After both incidences, he was hesitant to eat bone for again for a while, so I now feed him whole prey quail chicks in addition to small bones just to make sure that he is getting enough bone in his diet.
My other two have never had a problem with bones, except that each, in seperate incidences, got a chicken drumstick impaled on their canine teeth. Smudge got it off by himself, but Shade needed help.
I wouldn't worry too much about your kitty, they almost all figure out how to eat those bones. If you are really worried about it you can also small or grind the bones for a while.
