    My two yr old keep's eatting cat food.
    An_248594 posted:
    I have a two yr old and every time I turn around she has garbed a handful or more of our cat food and she eats it. and it doesn't seem to taste bad to her what can I do? why could see be doing this?
    fatherof4 responded:
    She is probably trying to get attention. I have a two-year-old boy who tries to get attention by jumping off things that are too high for him and consistently gets hurt. He seems to forget about it right after it happens.

    I'd move the cat food while she's going through this stage. It can't be very healthy for her.

    Yea i'd move it, you can get salamonila (sp) from eating that!
