Could be a conditon called pica thinking Cats with pica will eat anything, even non-food objects. Has the cat seen the vet lately? If not, schedule an appointment soon. The vet can determine if it is pica or not. I heard that some types of plastic bags are made with fish oil which some cats may find tasty shrug

Keep all plastic bags away from the cat. Plastic bags in general can be harmful, just like it is for children and babies. A cat can sauffocate in a bag or eat a piece of the bag and have serious intestinal blockage.
