Very Unusual Behavior for Some Cats

Friday, July 1, 2022
posted by Jim Murphy

One of the strangest cat behavior problems is when they chew on wool, plastic or other materials. Pica is the term used to describe a cats abnormal graving to eat non food items. Siamese and other oriental breeds are the most frequent offenders but almost any mixed breed cat can have this problem. Cats with Pica will bite telephone cords, panty hose or plastic bags.  Veterinarians aren’t sure why cats do it but pica seems to be an obsessive compulsive problem. Some cats are given and respond to drugs that are used to treat obsessive compulsive disorder in humans. Pica may also be a craving for ruffage. Planting a cat garden can be another worthwhile approach.

Remember, pets are family!
