Caturday: Tortie-tude

10-15-16

Is a cat’s temperament determined by color? I have been reading some interesting studies. Mini Cooper says she is never ‘naughty!’ Does your color match your temperament?

Caturday: Don’t Eat That!

Caturday: Don’t Eat That!

Noel suffers from chewing everything she shouldn’t, especially plastic. She chews napkins, tissues, and any plastic wrappers or bags that she can find. She really likes those plastic airbags that come in Amazon packages. We do our best to ensure she does not have access to things that she can swallow, but we don’t always know what she will start gnawing on next. I think they call this eating disorder PICA, a need to eat non-food things like dirt or paper. That would be our Noel.

Caturday: I Love Paper!

9.10.16

Noel has this thing for shucking on paper. When you go to take a tissue from the box, or a napkin from the table, you may find the edges twirled with spit, or chewed off all together. At holiday time, we have to hide the wrapping paper.

Peanut says that if Noel were a person, she would have the disorder called: Pica. That is the persistent eating of substances such as dirt or paint that have no nutritional value. Actually, that may describe most of my animals, but Noel is really into paper.

Do your furries eat stuff like this?
