Emery boards?

This is a discussion thread · 5 replies
Wojtek:
Why do cats like emery boards so much? Mine tries to eat it. And also digs very deep into my wife's makeup bag to get at it. Is the smell of the glue they use? Or more of a texture thing?

i would have guessed smell, it actually seems like he smells it and then tries to eat it rather than just rubbing his teeth against it. i guess trying sandpaper woud eliminate that possibility. I'll try it.

You're not the first person I've read whose cats go nuts over emery boards. The other thing is olives (???) ... mine don't notice either. I don't quite understand your post though...what are you going to try with sandpaper?

And another is Q-Tips. None of mine have gone for olives, either, but emery boards is ringing a faint bell. I keep them in the med. cabinet, so they usually can't get to them. Maybe I'll test one out on my cats (otoh, maybe it was a former cat who liked emery boards?)...

See if he's (he being the cat!) as enthralled w/ a piece of regular sandpaper as he is w/ emery boards maybe?
