Yesterday I walked into the living room to find Nikkers (the cat) and Daisy (the schnoodle) staring at what was left of the prized Ratty.  Guts were splayed across the floor as the two culprits stared in amazement.  Said Ratty was scooped up and taken to the yarn hospital today.  Surgery was short but very successful, and Ratty has made a successful and complete recovery.  However, further playtime with the Ratty is now done under supervision.
