I have no idea if Nola really has pica (a medical disorder characterized by an appetite for substances largely non-nutritive), but I like to say she does, because it explains her constant desire to gnaw on everything — plastic bags, paper, my finger. She’s a chewer, that one.
I recently found out she likes chewing on twigs. Here she is going in for a nice big bite.
She bites off a little piece, chews on it for a minute, and then spits it out. So very….strange.
Have any of you heard of kitty pica? What weird items do your cats chew on?
