There was actually on article on this site a couple of weeks ago about this very subject. It's called Feline Pica and it's when a cat eats odd, non-food related objects. The article suggested taking your cat to the vet for an exam to make sure their diet is complete and they are not eating these objects in an effort to make up for a vitamin deficiency.
