chewing on plastic things

One of my cats has a eating problem. He loves to chew on plastic things, like plastic bag, tubes, and gloves etc. What should I do to prevent him from doing it? I worry about his health since no one is supposed to eat plastic stuffs!!!

thx for your advice

There's nothing you can do to make him stop except stop leaving those types of things where he can get at them. And yes, it's definitely a health concern as it can cause his digestive system to get blocked up, which would result in surgery to correct. I'd suggest some kitty proofing....put away the things you know he likes to chew on.

Yanni - I agree with the above advice. That's really the only practical way to handle the situation.

BTW, I was really disappointed to see you and Linda break up. And how come you haven't done any really good albums lately?







Never mind --- just kidding
