Chew toys?

Hi All,
My 11 month old Little Man chews on everything-from my daughters wooden toys to the rug, electrical cords, hair bands, aluminum foil (if stolen from countertops), milk carton tops, you get the idea.

Today, at my wits end, i bought a puppy Kong and an open weave rubber ball for puppies. I put a freeze dried liver treat in each and he's chewing away! Hooray. BUT, will this type of toy induce frustration? Is there anything i should be concerned about..... Or is Kong not marketed for cats because most cats aren't chewers?

Thanks for your input!

I'm not sure why your kitten would get frustrated with the chew toys, sounds like an ingenious solution to your problem! Hope he continues to stick with the chew toys and ignores the other items he has previously chosen to chew on!

I tried duck feet ... cyro loved them, but has seemed to have a problem keeping food down after eating them. Could also be he's eating his dry food faster, and it's not the duck feet???

That's an odd one, he's not acting constipated or like he's developed an obstruction after eating the ducks' feet?

No, he's behaving normally. We are visiting family for the holidays, however, so his food is in a separate room. He'll dash in there and gobble up his dry food, then throw a little up along with lots of stomach acid. I thought the problem could be the duck feet, since he started doing it about the time he started chewing on them ... but maybe it's that he's eating too quickly so he can get back out with everyone else again?
