I started eliminating small ropes, but i wouldn't have seen them if i didn't inspect the crap with a metal wire, lol. The ropes were surrounded with fresh feces, so you couldn't see them just by looking at the bowl. So make sure you cut up everything in half, to see what's inside it! I took a metal coat-hanger, and cut the straight bottom of it on both ends. So, you get a nice long hard tool for inspecting!
