At first glance it may seem that a chewing habit many cats have is completely harmless and in most cases it really is. Yet every pet owner should be acknowledged about the reasons of what makes cats chew different stuff like plastic pieces and plastic bags to understand possible risks as understanding the behavior of your feline friend will help you to secure its health and safety.

Even though normally cats enjoy chewing plastic as they are entertained by its good taste or a sounds they might like there are few abnormal reasons of this.

If you are noticing your cat being obsessed with chewing you should look into possible teeth problems of your cat as the process of chewing provides a great pain relief especially during teething. This period takes place when your kitten is between 3,5 – 7 month of age and its absolutely normal. Yet if your cat is older and you suspecting it might have some teeth problems you should visit a veterinarian.

It’s very important for every pet owner to control things that are reachable for your cat.

Small items like:

- rubber bands

- plastic lids

- milk jug rings and so on. could be eaten accidentally.
