Snuggles is adorable. Such a sweet face.This is my cat Snuggles, she will take anything and makes it her toy. I've noticed everytime I open a gallon of water she goes crazy for the plastic seal. It's to the point that she will sleep on it after playing with it.
An interesting approach to their disposalThen, he usually pukes on them and they get thrown away.
I personally would not let your cat play with plastic bags! They can suffocate, if he is chewing on the bag pieces of it gets stuck inside his esophagus or trachea he could potentially die!Seriously, why do our furry feline friends seem to adore plastic shopping bags so much? I know cats who like to play with and get inside them, many like to chew them, and others, like a certain hairball is doing now, sleep on them.
Read something once that said they could like and be reacting to a certain chemical in the plastic itself.
Any others have any plastic chewers/nappers out there? Or have any insight on why they do this?
Love the puke icon thingy!! Haha!
An interesting approach to their disposalHurray, an excuse to use the puke icon, cheers for that!
I was brought up using recycled cloth shopping bags, or (even worse for my adolescent street-cred in the 80s) plastic boxes that my mum made us take into the supermarket (NO one else did this in those days, at least not in the places we lived). So, it's natural for me to always have a spare cloth bag on me somewhere, and I use a wheely trolly, like an old granny, these days too (gave up on my street-cred years ago, it's not a battle I can win!). I also use a small backpack instead of a handbag, I make a great pack-horse, hehe.
I never put my fruit and veg in the clear plastic bags either, so would have to kind of steal one for Brian every now and again. His wee face would light up when he realised I'd brought him a fresh one. And friends would occasionally bring him one as a gift, knowing how much he loved them!
As a disclaimer, I in no way advocate the use of plastic bags around children or small animals as a general rule, but Brian was far from general.
