cat chews emery boards

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

My 13-year-old spayed cat loves to chew on emery boards. She also loves crunchy cat food and cat treats. She's healthy, and isn't overweight or too thin. Is chewing emery boards normal, or is she just a little weird? She's chewed them since she was a kitten

From all the research I've been doing, it seems a lot of cats like chewing on emery boards. As long as they're not breaking off chunks of the board and swallowing it, there doesn't appear to be any hazards listed. Cats like rough surfaces and emery boards are just smaller versions of some of the scratching pads available. Chewing is not always destructive. Animals often times chew to relax themselves, when they're bored or because they just enjoy chewing. If she is chewing everyone available, use management. Only leave one out at any given time, keep the rest in a drawer. I always suggest asking your veterinarian for their opinion too. I hope this helps.
