    Craziest Thing Your Pet Has Ever Eaten?

    I've seen a few discussions on this board lately about pets eating odd things.

    I used to have a chihuahua who LOVED to eat crayons. Since the kids left them all over the place, it was hard to keep her away from them.

    Let's just say that when she had an accident in the house it was at least colorful!

    What's the craziest thing YOUR pet has ever eaten?

    I once had a doberman/lab mix and she had a lot of spirit and would get into anything available to her. She was an outside dog so we were able to control that reasonably well. But one day my mom had opened a storage area to get to a lime bag to treat the lawn for moss and forgot to close the door. When we next looked in, most of the big bag of lime was gone and our chocolate colored Cleo was pretty white, especially around the mouth. We were very scared she'd killed herself but nope, not a bit. Didn't even phase her.

    Ah you mean still eating, in my case.
    Every time I buy new slippers my oldest dog, a 14 year old Bichon thinks they are for her enjoyment! If I say "go get your toy" she brings me my slipper!

    They are silky material and I think she likes the material. Eventually they do become her toy and pretty much eaten!
    But, I adore her!

    I knew a kitten who tried to lick razor blades. Luckily, no harm was done and once that habit was discovered they were taken away. A couple of cats of mine have liked everything sweet, especially caramels, and one of them broke in to the cupboard to tear open the sealed bag of white sugar and eat some.
