I am a chewer - I love love looove to chew, cardboard, nip sticks, cat chewies & apparently ...wood. A few times in the past, I got in trouble cause I chewed on the edge of the little wooden box we nap in the kitchen. Mom solved that by making sure the blankie in there covers the edges all the time. All was ok, until she went to use some wood conditioner on her wooden rocking chair. Now this is a special chair. It was given to her when she was 18. She stripped the dark finish & gold (ick right?) painting & stripes off of it & lovingly refinished it to a beautiful honey oak. Many books were read- Both of the human kids were rocked to sleep/fed/stories told/bad dreams banished, you get it, in that chair. So what does she find on the back edges of the rockers? the edges chewed up, and some on the front. Of course we all know who the guilty party is, because I like to sleep on the rug under that chair most nights. Momma's face got this funny twitchy thing going, and then she turned to me as I was on the couch "Felix did you chew my chair?" Frankly why she asked is beyond me, because no one else would have done it really. Maizy will nap on the seat, but no one else really even goes by it. I gave my best "yes I am sooooo guilty and yet I am sooooo cute and I promise I will never well not really chew anything again, and did I mention that I looove you momma?" face. Well of course she could not be mad at me, a little sad, but she says "O well, it is a well worn, loved chair, what is a few more marks - that will make me always think about you Felix." She is not sure if she is gonna sand it or not - but maybe someone knows if there is something that can be put on there to discourage me chewing so I don't get any wood in mah belly. There is stuff for doggies, but something safe for kitties. Dang...now I reeeaaallllly gotta be extra cute. Sorry Momma...

OMC! Mom says that can be very scarey because you like to chew on things...Mom has never had a kitty that chews on things so we don't know of anything...maybe you could call your vet office and ask them for any suggestions or look it on the computer....

Now Felix you need to find something else to do besides chewing...

The only thing I likes to chew on are food and my momma's hair! But Maurice likes to chew on plastic.

By careful, Felix! Slivers of wood can really hurt your insides. I don't know any safe deterrent to use, but I know about the chewing thing. I love plastic (which is also not safe for kitties to chew) and chew up the plastic that toilet paper packs come in, devour (if allowed) plastic shopping bags, and have even been known to lick hard plastic. The upside is the vet says I have excellent teeth. While I don't recommend this, maybe your mom can get you to chew something safe (cat denta-sticks?)

I do have the denta sticks & the nip sticks are mesh chewies. Mom will call the vet, cause the doggie stuff might not be safe. I don't chew cords, just those 2 things..so far that momma has found...my teeth are nice & shiny though!
