Default Emery boards?

Why do cats like emery boards so much? Mine tries to eat it. And also digs
very deep into my wife's makeup bag to get at it. Is the smell of the glue
they use? Or more of a texture thing?

i would have guessed smell, it actually seems like he smells it and then
tries to eat it rather than just rubbing his teeth against it. i guess
trying sandpaper woud eliminate that possibility. I'll try it.

trying sandpaper woud eliminate that possibility. I'll try it.


You're not the first person I've read whose cats go nuts over emery boards. The
other thing is olives (???) ... mine don't notice either. I don't quite
understand your post though...what are you going to try with sandpaper?

And another is Q-Tips. None of mine have gone for olives, either, but emery
boards is ringing a faint bell. I keep them in the med. cabinet, so they
usually can't get to them. Maybe I'll test one out on my cats (otoh, maybe
it was a former cat who liked emery boards?)...

See if he's (he being the cat!) as enthralled w/ a piece of regular
sandpaper as he is w/ emery boards maybe?
