Every now and then I wake up to find someone went on a binge overnight. A binge of plastic chewing. This is what I woke up to Saturday morning.
My niece will be happy the toy inside is unharmed.
I also found this which meant the binger was up on the kitchen counter which is a paws off location (our rule, the cats just humor us by not getting up there when we are around).
The culprit seemed totally nonchalant about the whole thing.
Poughkeepsie has what’s called a pica. A pica is when an animal (or person) eats non-food items. In Pough’s case it’s just chewing but some cats actually ingests objects which has the potential for some big health problems. Fortuantely, for us it’s just an inconvenience and we have to keep the plastic put away.
Weirdly Woody, the first Ragdoll I owned, also had the same issue with plastic. I was curious if this was a “Ragdoll” problem so asked on Ragdoll forum. There were 1 or 2 other people with Ragdolls that chewed plastic but also a couple of non-Ragdolls.
Do any of your cats chew on plastic?
