Hi Maddie!

WE MISSED YOU!

As for the bag licking and biting....

Supervised play may be OK, the medical opinion seems to be, but there is a name for this interest, and things to watch out for...

Hi E & S! Thanks for the note! It's really heart-warming to know we were missed.
Don't worry, Maddie's time with the plastic bags is always supervised. She never bites or chews them. She simply licks them. I've been told that plastic bags like this are coated in the factory with a very fine corn-starch spray that prevents them from clinging too tightly together and that's what cats like to lick. I didn't mention that in my post 'cause I have no confirmation but I guess I'll indulge in rampant speculation now.
Maddie doesn't do any other non-food chewing or licking, really (save for chewing on my hand when it's time to stop brushies), so I think she's not doing the pica thing.
I do appreciate your comment. It's good to know there's someone else out there willing to go to bat for a cat.
Thanks!
John
