Foods Your Cat Should Never Eat

Strange Things Cats EatThe urge to eat nonfood items called pica can be pretty common in cats.

Many cats will nurse on wool, says Arnold Plotnick, DVM, a veterinary internist and feline specialist in New York. Oriental cats “are predisposed to that,” he says.

That habit also may appear in cats that were weaned too early. The younger a cat is weaned, the stronger its drive to nurse and the more likely the cat is to suck on wool or its owner’s arms, earlobes, or hair. Although some cats may only suck on such fuzzy items as wool, fleece, and stuffed animals, others progress to eating these fabrics.

And some cats move on to eating stranger items such as shoelaces, paper, plastic goods like grocery bags and shower curtains, and even electrical cords, says Nicholas H. Dodman, section head and program director of Animal Behavior at Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine.

What Causes Unusual Cravings?”I wish I knew the answer to that one,” Plotnick says. Cat pica may be caused by many things, including:

Dietary deficiencies: Some cats will eat their cat litter if they’re anemic, Plotnick says. We think it may have a genetic basis, because we do see it occurring more frequently in certain breeds.”Though feline pica shows up most frequently in young cats, it can also appear in older cats.

A what in my bag post! There always a fascination of what in another person bag, makeup bag, shower, or closet. I always like reading posts or watching videos of these kind of things, mostly to get ideas, and I think it fun to see what people carry around with them depending on their style and personality! This is my Micheal Kors bag I got last year, it the Grayson Large Satchel Luggage, I decided to treat myself since I had saved a little!

It a fairly spacious bag, I could put LOTS of stuff in it if I needed to, the quality of the bag is wonderful and I try to keep it as clean as possible! The detailing is really good, and the leather is very soft and durable. The stitching is also very good, and I think this bag will last me a long time.

Here all the stuff I carry around with me on a daily basis. Most of the things are quite boring, like tis omega watches sue paper, gum, etc., but I share the rest in case anyone is interested! :)

This is my Burberry Wallet, I got this a couple years ago at Nordstrom as a Christmas gift from my mom! (So nice of her) I kept it in pretty good condition, but since it so well made, it was pretty easy to take care of by itself. It fairly wide and can fit a lot of things that I need on a daily basis. It has the traditional Burberry checker print, which I like, it somewhat classic and goes with everything!

Here the inside (hiding my driver license ;)) l omega watches ol It fits a lot of cards and knick knacks on the inside, and the other side has a separate compartment for money etc. I really like this wallet, and I come to really like Burberry and their accessories! I just wish they weren SO expensive!! XD

This is my phone, I recently upgraded to the iphone 4, I gave my old iphone3 to my mom, since she had never used a smart phone. I really like the iphone 4, it has great resolution, high speed, and you can really do a lot with it. It gotten me out of a lot of tricky situations! lol It also has a camera on both sides so you can take pictures and conference calls, and also record video which is great! The sound is also pretty good, it a great investment as it is like a personal computer. My phone case is a Rilakkuma case, it really cute and has ears on it, people comment on it all the time. :)

This is my BCBG bracelet I got at Macy that I recently and fell in love with. They have a lot of colors which come in leather or this jelly texture, each with a cute saying like etc. They were SO cute it was hard to pick one! They were about $20, so they weren that bad, but I just love it and it worth it to me!

Mine is pink and says in gold letters!

I always carry around lip balm because my lips always seem to chap. I really love the Loreal Colour Riche Balm, as I have many of them!! I really like that they have SPF and just a hint of color. The Nivea Balm is a good overall balm to put on my lips, and the Love Toast Vanilla Chai Lip Balm is the newest addition. It smells heavenly, like vanilla and chai, and makes my lips feel very smooth and hydrated.

I also keep a hand cream or two around since my hands and nail areas can get dry. I LOVE the Cute as Hell Blushing Violet a omega watches nd Quince Hand Lotion, it smells AMAZING. I have backups of this to prove it. The Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream is a new addition, and I love it as well. It has a lighter scent, but has such a great moisturizing formula. It also has quite a bit of product so it last a long time! Love it!!

These are my Juicy Couture Sunglasses, I think the frames are called Country Club 2, and my regular Armani eyeglasses. My eyesight has been getting worse as the years go by _ ; and I needed to get stronger prescription lenses. The frames make me look professional, and fit comfortably on my face. The sunglasses are a but squared, but still give me a great look. The frames itself hide the majority of my eyes and face, so they are a bit big. I love how they fit and feel, so I have no problem with them!

This is my Shiseido Makeup bag, I have all my daily essential makeup in here, that I use everyday. I have a omega watches post here on my latest what in my makeup bag contents, I hope you enjoy! Things get removed and put in all the time, so it is really slowly ever changing. There are a few staples that I haven changed in a while though!

Here are my other knick knacks that I carry around in my bag. I recently tried the Colgate wisps, which are like on the go mini tooth brushes, they kind of work, but give you a fresh blast of clean during the day if you need it (heavy lunch etc.). I absolutely LOVE tea, so I need to have some around in case I feel like a cup during the day or night, especially at work! The 5 Cobalt gum I carry around in case I want a quick freshener, the mint is fairly strong and lasts a while. I also carry my passport around in case I need more identification than my driver license, which surprisingly people ask often!
