Sorry to hear about the problem with Coco. Glad to hear he's himself again.
Thank you for the posting - glad you made it. I have a male Abby who gives me the same problem. We have to turn all our brooms bristle side up or hide them - to stop him from feeding on them.
We've been fortunate so far, he hasn't actually eaten any that we know of, but it hasn't been for the lack of trying.
This posting gives us some idea of what the side effects could be as a result of digesting a foreign object - specifically broom bristles.
Animals are such agreeable Friends.
