Does Your Cat Clean Its Teeth on Metal?
A few years ago, I found that my Ragdoll cat Trigg would bite metal in my basement – but not a full bite – just near his back molars, as if he was trying to pop off the tartar.
I know a lot of you are already thinking, “PICA!”, however, I do not believe that’s the case here as his intention is very deliberate and the behavior doesn’t happen on a routine enough basis for it to be considered much of anything else.
I told the vet about it and she doubted he was trying to clean his teeth.
I asked the animal communicator, Holly Jacobs, that we communicate with on a regular basis, and she confirmed through Trigg that, in fact, that’s what he is trying to do.
I was thrilled the other day when I caught him in action trying to clean his teeth on metal. This was outside on my patio furniture – which was a first. He really shows how he does it at about 1 minute into the video.
