Little monster won't stop!!

Hello all pet lovers!

I have a 11month old bengal kitten, Alize aka little monster, who rips apart and eats almost everything!
It started with plastic, then moved on to furry fabrics and now she tares apart regular cotton fabrics!

This kitten just needs to chew and rip something apart. Does anyone have any suggestions on a healthy edible toy that I could give to her to keep her away from my clothes and kitchen towel!?!?

Thanks !

Have you heard of Pica? Hopefully this article can help you shed some light on your cat's behaviours.

Sounds like common Bengal behaviour to me. You could give him one of those rubber Kong toys...you put a treat inside, and it will keep him busy trying to get it out. Most pet stores carry them in varying sizes.

Oups
Sorry guys, I just realized I've already posted a thread on this.
I have heard about Pica yes and I'm doing everything I can to stop her from eating inedible things.
Hoping to get new ideas for moments Im not at home with her.

The toy with treats in it sounds like a good idea, I'm looking into that now thanks you!
