Eats adhesive tape
It's a good question! Apparently a little digging on the net shows that it's not an uncommon thing for cats to do. In some cases, it can be linked to the condition called 'pica', where people (and in this case cats) have a propensity for chewing on or eating non-food items. Apparently with cats, this can happen when a kitten is not weaned properly from its mother. Other reasons could be dietary-related, boredom or stress, genetics, unique behavioral traits, etc. It's probably best just to hide any tape you have in the house, or bin it as soon as any arrives on a delivery box for example, just to be sure she's not ingesting the plastic or glue, or gets it tangled in her throat or around her body ☺

But.... despite the dysfunctions my kid-dies have, I love them like they were my children. Spoiled rotten children, but they spoil me back with their cuddles & entertainment.
