My advice always - don't feed on loose substrate!

Swallowing loose substrate can cause impaction of the digestive system.

YOu'll probably get away with a few bits this time, but from now on I'd suggest feeding in a tub, or better still, change your substrate to newspaper or kitchen towel.
You know your friendship is's too short for you not to know how much...
