    Does anyone else have cats that chew on EVERYTHING? Any solutions? Shoes, bags, paper, books, candles, toys, clothes, nothing is safe!
    They both do it but the girl a bit more so. They're nearly 2 years old. Have done it since kittens.

    Well one of them did have bad teeth. When he was only 4 months old he was having tummy problems and my vet said let's check his teeth because cats with auto immune / GI issues can have bad teeth. And sure enough he did. But since then he's been having Hills TD dry to fix that (they absolutely refuse to eat chicken necks or similar) and his teeth are good now. The girl who is the worse chewer has always had ok teeth.
    But maybe I need to get them something else food like to help them relieve that urge to chew? The dogs have dentastix I wonder if there's a cat version.
    Do you give anything to your cat to help its teeth?

    Not sure if you can get it over here but you can try to find Bitter apple its a spray you put on things and it tastes yuck. The other option you can do is get a can soda can with a few coins in it tape the top and when you see them chewing throw it up and towards them but make sure you dont hit them. This will teach them that if they chew the sky will fall. You want to make sure they dont see you or they will just learn that you are doing it and will wait until your gone to chew.

    Might try that out. We used to do the water spray bottle thing but they like water. It was not effective!

    Most pet shops sell a cat repellant spray. I used it for my boy who use to claw everything but could work with chewing too?
