I have a paper-eating cat. I know it's strange but I have this large cat that is (really) half bobcat, and half Egyptian Mau. I don't know how that came to be, but it's what the vet tells me, and since she came to us that route, I think he should know. When she was less than two weeks old, she was mostly eaten by a coyote (the rest of her clutch was eaten), so at two weeks old, the vet put 81 stitches into her striped hide and gave her to us. She's now a huge 25 pound brute of a cat that has excessively large fangs and eats paper. In fact, if you don't give her paper to eat, she will destroy your furniture, steal your wallet, and eat your credit cards. I know there is no point at all to this rant, but it is another little weirdness that pervades my life. When my kid says, "the cat ate my homework," believe her.

Papers a new one to me, but I did once have a cat that loved jalepeno peppers. He'd eat half, go drain the water bowl, then come back to finish the pepper. Heh

Weird. I have a dog that shreds paper. He doesnt eat it ever. But if he gets a sheet of it he just rips it to little shreds and and then rips the shreds to smaller shreds. He never leaves a random piece of paper untouched. I think its so odd because he is a pit bull. Usually pit bulls are found tearing holes in walls or hanging from rope swings.. Mine just shreds paper. Guess its good Im not still in college.

Pit bulls are so cute, especially when they are being destructive. They are little fierce warriors...kinda dragonish in a way. :)
