My cat has started eating things she shouldn't, the first time was today she ate a part of a cardboard milk carton, and then part of a shoelace while I was out. She has been destructive and chewed up several things including cords, socks, cardboard boxes and one of those microwavable hot packs we got for her that has rice in it, and she did eat some of the rice out of it. Any idea of why she might be doing this and how we can prevent this type of behavior, or do we just have to monitor her well, and remove all possible items she might destroy. She generally chews on cardboard, she got the milk carton out of the recycle since she knows how to open the cabinet it's in, but today was the first time she ate something rather than just chewing on it followed by the shoe lace. She puked up the shoe lace and has seen the vet and is fine, just wondering what could be causing this.
