Our 1 year old male cat named Simon has recently started a bad habit. If he can find any trace of plastic around the house he will try to eat it. Today he found my child's easter grass and ate several strands which he later expelled. I don't understand why he would begin to do this. We have oat grass for him and lots and lots of toys. I am worried that if I don't break him of this he will become sick. I use a squirt bottle when I see him go near the trash bags and also keep up any particles that I see but somehow he manages to find a trace here or there. Does anyone have any ideas as to why he would want to do this or how I might get him to stop? Thanks bunches.
