my dog was chewing a corner of the wall, there's a big patch of missing drywall etc. yum. we now spray bitter apple on every corner and along all the moldings. she also was chewing the paint off the window ledge. bitter appled that.
the cat box.. eugh. it's kept in the basement and she's not allowed down there but sometimes if i leave her unattended she sneaks down. next thing i know she's jumping in my lap to give me kisses and her breath smells like cat pee. she's more likely to eat the litter itself than the poo. though today i left her alone for a half an hour while i ran to the store, came back to a halfchewed cat turd on the floor. mmm.
she was worse when we first got her and she was teething. she chewed corners of pillows, our clothes (while we were wearing them sometimes), shoes, etc. i'd find her with wierd objects all the time. we learned pretty quick to keep things out of her reach and just how high she can reach and/or jump.
and before we got rid of our spare bed she would crawl under and pull the stuffing out of the boxspring and eat it. she eats kleenex if we leave them in reach, i've caught her with chunks of insullation from the basement, she's shredded used 'feminine products' much to my husband's dismay (we bought a lidded trash can for the bathroom and that put an end to that) she even took one onto our bed and hubby caught her... eating the blue gel-type stuff out of the centre, left a big blue stain on our bedspread.
as for non-destructive things, we don't give her people food except for the occasional carrot which she loves. but months ago hubby gave her a teeny piece of a potato chip to see if she'd like it. she didn't, she licked it once and made a face and wouldn't go near it again. but ever since if she hears a chip bag rustling she comes running. we keep reminding her she doesn't like chips and yet...
then there's the cat who has EATEN headphones. he loves the wires on headphones/earbuds. one time i was freaking out cause i found bits of a pair of earbuds all over the floor, the plug, one bud, and bits of the cord but was missing the other bud. i thought for sure he swallowed it and it'd cause a blockage and require surgery. i found it eventually, he had scattered the parts all over the house. big relief there.
he used to chew on the cord for the computer mouse too, especially when we were using it, a wiggling cord is just too tempting. we bought a wireless one
he loves loves loves anything tomato-based. you can't leave tomato soup or sauce unattended. if i have to go to the bathroom or something and am eating something tomato-y i stash it in the microwave while i'm gone cause it's the only place it's safe
oh and when he was a kitten and i was still an omni, i was sitting on the couch eating dinner in my lap and he was sleeping beside me. i got distracted watching tv and suddenly looked down in time to see him taking a whole chicken breast off my plate. it was as big as him! i grabbed the other end of it and he just wouldn't let go. he had a deathgrip on it and started growling at me lol. i had to pry it out of his mouth.
they've both been known to chew corners of books, and the ends of the broom!!
oh and i have a friend who used to have this cat named Spagetti. the reason for the name was we were at a friend's house whose cat had kittens. we sat down to eat dinner, spagetti, and one of the kittens managed to climb out of my friends lap onto the table, and proceeded to sit in her plate and eat her spagetti. she got totally covered in sauce. it was so cute and funny that she decided to adopt the kitten and name her Spagetti. over the years though it got shortened to "Sketti" cause it was just easier to say and it really suited her. she was very skittish. skittish, sketti... it works.
