    Kiko chews on metal objects

    Anyone have any ideal why my girl would be chewing on metal objects? I've notice that she was chewing on our CD/DVD holder which is made of metal. THen I noticed today she was chewing on our stand in the kitchen wich I believe is made of Stainless steal, and also a plastic hanger that had a metal hook/hanger part to it.

    I just hope she's not getting sick I've been able to keep her from the CD/DVD holder but I'm begining to worry... I'll probably take her to the vet ....

    metal chewing

    And this is a cat? Sounds more like a goat! I wonder if they become deficiant in certain elements and crave metal to replace or if is simply behavioural OR, it makes the gums feel good? (like a puppy..) What's the age? This is truely odd unless others have heard of this...

    Doogie chews on plastic and the wooden handle on my recliner. I have absolutely NO idea why either.

    Since your baby is about 6 months old, it could be she's getting new teeth in.

    Kiko is beautiful! You might want to try getting her a small rubber doggie toy that she can chew on.

    Good idea

    A rubber toy seems much better then my toes! My silly girl... I just love her so.... I wish Sugar would be more responsive towards her but he's still a bit jealous.

    I have no idea on the chewing. Good luck with that.

    Totally off the subject, but since you mentioned it, how long have Kiko and Sugar been together?

    Sometimes it does take a while.

    Many Thanks to Kay for the Picture.

    A Bengal? Why YES!

    Baby girl is a 6 month year old Bengal... My first.

    She is a real kick... Looks like you have Bengals as well. I have more pictures at this website. I hope it works...

    Pictures of my girl and Sugar and our very missed Freind...
    A few pictures of my parents pets too!

    Sugar and Kiko have been together for about 2 months....He's slowly coming around... He is the BABY and to have a little one around ... I think he feels a bit jealous not to mention he lost his best friend about 6 months ago.
