wiping off the urine--attacking the napkin--why?
 
does anyone know why Sweetie *fiercely attacks* and tries to eat the napkins (either kleenex or other kind) that my mom uses to wipe off his urine? the same thing happened when i tried to wipe off some watermelon mess next to him. he totally went for the napkin. i am worried about him trying to eat the paper.

Maybe he thinks it's something to play with or a threat to his territory? :|

Some of them really love tissue or toilet paper and will use it to make a nest. This includes males. My Teasel was the best nest builder and would put any girl to shame. :lol: You can give him some toilet paper to do as he wants with it. The cheaper stuff is better as it disintegrates easiest so if he does happen to swallow any, it will pass right through.
