She is licking a fingernail file!

Makes my skin thinking about it! I was just sitting here and see Tiki licking a fingernail file!! I took it away, but I wonder what it was that made her do that? Dunno. Guess that is kinda what her tongue feels like....

At least my cats aren't the only ones who do that then. Mine will chew on it too if I don't take it away.

My RB cat Kitt loved to lick fingernail files. Maybe it feels good to them?

I have to keep all of my fingernail files hidden between uses. Maggie will chew them and completely destroy them. I give her my old ones for toys. If she hears the sound of me filing my nails, she comes running! She'll even try to take the file away from me.

Kitty is the same!

I did have a video on my phone but when it went back to the shop for mending they wiped it off

Anyway, I was sat on the bathroom floor using an emery board on my toe nails and Kitty walked in and took hold of the other end of it so I was pulling it then he was pulling it in his mouth, if you see what I mean
I send it to my brother and sister and they said it was just sick and Kitty isn`t normal, but it must be a cat thing

This is all to common, at least now I know I am not alone on this subject here If I file my nails I will have at least 3 kitties here trying to chew it or take it while I am using it Of course the main culprits of that is Blue and Stormie..the main culprits for everything

Um, I hate to tell you all this, but it's not just the feel- it's the taste that they like. If you have/had horses, kinda like dogs stealing the horse hoof trimmings to chew. Sorry about that! I have one cat (Bird) who goes really nuts for fingernail files, especially when I'm using it!

Abby has a thing for my emery board for some reason. She doesn't chew it so I let her lick on it for awhile if she wants.

That's funny. I've never heard of a kitty doing that before
