Re: Odd things pets eat

Oh, one of our cats is guilty of something similar. She loves to chew on the pull tab on the back of sneakers... the little tab at the top of the shoe by the ankle. None of us have unmolested tabs, except DS who is diligent about putting his shoes in the closet and closing the door. DD keeps her "good" sneakers in the car so the cat can't get to them.

She has even jimmied open a shoe box and chewed on the tabs of a brand new pair of DH"s, which hadn't even been taken out of the box yet.

Re: Odd things pets eat

My cat ate a taxidermy baby duck this morning. Ate the head.
My Italian greyhound ate rabbit today, but that's not unusual, I cooked it for her and made a potpie for my dinner.

My cats come home with rats the size of ginny-pigs.

Re: Odd things pets eat

I got my nails done before X-mas (mani & pedi) - the place gave me a pair of flip-flops to wear home (cheap things, no big deal)

today I discovered that one of the cats had been chewing on just one flip-flop - there are tooth marks/punctures galore

Re: Odd things pets eat

Birdseed. We were having trouble with racoons getting in the bird feeders at night and cleaning them out, so I started bringing the feeders in after dark. Never occured to me to put them somewhere the dogs wouldn't get into them. Our dachshund decided the birdseed looked tasty and ate a pretty good sized helping.

Re: Odd things pets eat

I just caught our alpha male on the kitchen stove. I quickly swooped away the pumpkin bread that was on a cooling rack, and he was fine with that. The crumbs were more to his liking anyway.

And hoping to take advantage of a learning opportunity, mean ol' KayKay turned a burner on low to teach the cat to perhaps not jump on the (electric) stove. He sat right on it, clearly uncomfortable but not sure why or what to do about it. I actually had to lift him off the stove! SMH.

My Rat Terrier eats bees. The dog is nuts.

My Chihuahua will eat June Bugs. That dog is nuts too.
