    Termite Kitty

    Why does my cat eat paper? She loves tissue especially. Kleenex, napkins, packing tissue, you name it. I have to say, she's very dainty about it and never gets greedy.

    Could be . She's my first cat, but I've never seen any of my friends' cats lay on their backs all the time like she does.

    Re: Termite Kitty

    How old is the kitty and what do you feed her? (BESIDES tissue )

    She may not be getting enough of something nutritionally or it could
    just be a little kitty thing... they don't know what really not to eat if
    they're small... and their playfulness gets the better of them sometimes.

    If you can keep that kind of thing out of her reach it would probably be
    good, 'cause there is a possibility of digestive upset!!

    (As for the laying on the back thing, some kitties do it. I know of one in
    particular, but she doesn't eat tissue!!)

    Another thing I should mention... kitty could have a strong play drive...
    (don't worry it's a sign of intelligence... perhaps she takes after daddy? )
    and you could/should substitute her own toys instead of the other stuff,
    and have play sessions with her. Kitty fishing, anyone?

    Just like with a toddler, put those things away from kitties reach. Tissue paper won't hurt her, but if she eats things like ribbons off of packages, that is bad for the tummy.

    I had a cat that loved to shred paper towels and he was quite good at it... nice long strips almost perfectly spaced. But he didn't eat the paper. Another cat enjoyed mini-marshmallows... I think he liked the texture. Could be your kitty likes making spitballs.

    Shima's just over a year old, and plays constantly! Often she'll come near one of us and roll on her back (feigning injury?) until one of us notices her, then she's off like a shot! Anything small enough to slap around is fair game: ping pong ball, my favorite pen , beer bottle cap, Mommie's hair clip , christmas ornaments, etc. I bought a kid's fishing kit with the rubber fish to practice casting. She loves to chase it. Occassionally she'll attack it, but ususally just stops when it stops.

    We feed her dry Whiskas 4 times a day, total about 1 1/2 - 2 cups (she's 6lbs). She's never pushy about food. She also drinks a little milk when I get my cereal. She only eats the tissue at night (edges only) and only if we neglect to put things away. We can't keep TP on the dispenser, but that's just because it's fun for her to unroll (she only eats a bit on the end.

    Christmas ornaments are fair game to kitties. Close the bathroom door to keep the TP safe. Kitties are playful, she is not being bad. But you have to kitty proof a house just like with kids. My very special things are not out, after all these years, because I always have a kitty. He got every ornament off the tree almost daily, and broke one. But he is very gentle and kind to my husband, because he knows he is sick. He jumps around with the rest of us!
