- I had a cat named beavis. Coolest cat in the world but I think he thought he was a dog (fetched&stuff..lol) he didn't care anything for catnip but if I had orbit gum, the one that's kinda teal, he'd go bananas. He would climb counters, search my coat pockets, he even unzipped my purse & had half his body in it rooting around for it. If I would lose my gum id find the chewed up pack later. He would hide it. He also liked to roll on it. But it was a lot fun watching what he'd do to find it. I had a german rott once and he eat anything and everything. Eggshells, lettuce. EDITOR'S NOTE: Many sugarless gums contain xylitol, which may be toxic to pets. http://vetmedicine.about.com/od/toxicology/qt/xylitol_tox.htm

Things pets eat
- My dog ate cat poop and his own vomit until I gave him acidolphius and prebiotics and now he doesn't do it anymore.

The other dog's poo
- I'd taken our Puggle to the vet and asked what can be done about her eating the Great Dane's poo. He'd said "I can give you something to give the Dane to make his poo taste bad." Uhhh, "taste bad"?? Isn't poo gonna taste bad all by itself? He'd said that many dogs eat poo. So, when the sweet little poo eater decided to cuddle up to me she burped. OMG!!! Can you say poop breath? It was awwwwful. She'll eat them in the winter...frozen. I now call them TT's, Turd Trophies. (huuuurp)

Shocked but not surprised
- My pitbull had always been crated when I went out for longer than a half hour. I decided to test him out by going for groceries. I ran into a friend and was gone for three hours. When I came home he was chewing through and scratching at the drywall by the kitchen. I've kept the cut out and plan to hang it on the wall beside his kennel so he's reminded why he's in there and not lazing on the couch when I'm not home.

LiIly plant and my cat Honeybutter
- I did not know lilies were toxic to cats when I purchased one at a local store. My 2 cats were staying away so I thought nothing of it. But just a few days ago I saw one cat going near the plant. I shooed him away and left for work. Not even an hour later I got a call from my hubby saying Honeybutter threw up some of the plant. I immediately do a google search to discover my 8 dollar plant was toxic!! GASPS. I called the vet ASAP and get my cat there within an hour of ingestion. Those two nights he was in the hospital were torture but the great news is that he has a clean bill of health and is home now. Happy to be here and happy to be had.

- My Shepard used to eat everything (and occasionally still does). Glass from a broken vase, lipstick, paper towels, toilet paper, socks, allege framing in the house, tile grout! All the grout and broken tiles in the bathroom and kitchen, plastic cups, all the eyes from every stuffed animal in the house, pillow pets, every shoe I own, my bathrobe!!! And fleece blankets (they all have holes in them) I remember when she was little she ate one of those silica gel packets in new purses, or beef jerky! I freaked out, and rushed her to the vet every time and she is fine! Never had an issue! This girl makes me crazy sometimes:-) and our shi tzu always eats her own poo. So gross!

appetite for everything
- First my american pitbull ate a ipod, m80(firecracker) my bed, crayons( pretty poo afterwards) almost every pair of shoes i have ever owned. And my american bulldog emily had bad separation anxiety, show she moved and entire couch to get to the window tore up and completly destroyed carpet and pad im a room, pooed everywhere in the house, tore up the baby bed also. Thank goodness both of them don't have anymore issues besides the occasional sock. And to anyone who dislikes pitbulls. They are great loving animals with big hearts and smiles. I trust them around all of my children, more than most humans. Don't judge a dog until you met them.

Strange things your dog has eaten
- My six month old pitbull puppy had emergency surgery two weeks ago for an intestinal obstruction. She had not eaten in almost 6 days. The vet said that what she removed was a hard ball, preventing my puppoy from eating or passing it in her stool. After surgery she put the object in a plastic bag. When she gave it to me I knew right away what it was. She had been eating the siding off of the back of the house!

- My dog bella somehow found her way into the toy room, and upon finding a plastic milk carton, she decided to chew it.
