Do they have any kind of food smell or residue on it?

I remember we used to have a cat who loved those plastic sacks tied up into a little ball! He loved it so much he would play fetch with it! Maybe she wants to play with it?

When I was growing up, my one cat used to actually eat my homework. He had a thing for eating paper. It was odd and I still don't quite know why he did it. Luckily, it didn't harm him in any way... I just had some homework with chew marks.

Sorry I can't help you with your question!

Perhaps she's hungry? LOL...jk....

Maybe you should try putting them all up so she can't get to them. Is it just Wal-Mart/Kroger type bags that she likes, or trash bags and others too?

I have to keep all plastic bags out of site because my cat Bean loves to try and eat them. He also chews on cardboard boxes and other things so I have to be careful what I leave out. Im not sure if its true or not but someone on another board said that animal fat is used in plastic bags to keep them from sticking together or something like that and that is what attracts some cats to them.
