My cat is chewing up everything in my house, what should i do?!
I really love my cat, she is the world to me but she has pica, and she has been chewing up gloves, flip flops, paper, the leather coach, wires, her food bag, and more. I dont want her eating something then getting sick, and i dont want her eating all of my stuff. I try getting her toys but she just chews that up too. I just want her to be happy and me too. And i dont have a bunch of money to buy her more toys. I just want some advice on how to protect her and my stuff at the same time.
