Eating Fabric

I had a Bengal that would chew on and eat fabric. I thought for a long time it was Pica. It turned out he needed more fiber. As soon as I added more fiber to his diet, the problem went away. Amazon and Chewy sells some pumpkin fiber for cats and dogs.

Bella would groom the fuzzy blankets to the point there was noting left of them.
The odd thing is with the passing of both of my boys she has stopped with the blankets.
One thing I have always done with the boys and Bella is a tub of grass to chew on.
Bella still goes for plastic with Zip-Lock being here favorite flavor.

Pleas post any info on your progress.

Kitty grass is good stuff, agreed - our boys go nuts for it, and I noticed less box/paper chewing from Bear after they started getting it.
Ziplock, lol. Ninja prefers grocery store bags. :roflmao:

I have been using gras that is intended for People. The stuff at the pet store is silly priced and the
people stuff is only $2.00 vs the $5.99 at the pet store.

Has anyone with this issue tried stuff like Bitter Yuck?

I can tell you from spraying it near the heater duct and getting a bunch in the face that the stuff is NASTY!

Bitter Yuck would work to stop the eating of fabric but I think the cat would end up finding something else to chew on if it was a medical, behavioral or dietary problem like lack of fiber.

Of all the tous I get for any cat I have one or more are of the type that they can chew on.
Xander at first wanted to chew on a few things . What I did was take an old sock and tie
some knots in it and played tug or war with him. Later I just let him have it to chew on. So far
that had been the only thing he has chewed on. That is unless you also count Bella's tail. She
can defend that her self.
