Hello! My first post here, we got two gorgeous kittens on Friday and now been reading posts here. Lots of useful info, thanks!
Today I was watching them play (honestly, I could watch them all day long!) and noticed one kept chewing on cardboard boxes and wooden stepping stool legs. Current favourite toyssmile And I was wondering should I get them some special chewing toys? Do they make them for cats or should I get some small dogs ones?
Here's a customary kitten photo for you all toogrin

Aww, how beautiful are they? smile

I got this Wiggly Worm for mine to chew on when he was a kitten.

Thanks RubbishMantra!
At the moment they are loving DS's dinosaurs. They do want to move on to electrical cables now which is worrying. Any tips how to train them not to chew them? Have hidden most but some are impossible to hide.

I think rubbing Eucalyptus/Olbas Oil onto wires can be useful for deterring wire chewing. And you can get wire tidies from Amazon.

Please don't rub olbas oil or eucalyptus oil anywhere they can reach, it's toxic.

Savoury gravy! Just realised the cat chew toy I linked to was 35 quid! I bought their's from a local pet shop. It's here at a more normal price.

Didn't know eucalyptus oil was toxic to cats Micah. It's recommended a lot on this board, to deter chewing of wires. Never used it myself, because I've been lucky not to have chewy cats. They prefer chewing on my flesh.

Haha RubbishMantra, wasn't planning spending £35 on one toy anyway, already found some links where's it's loads cheapergrin

Your kittens are so sweet! Have you named them?

Awwwww, kittehs.
No point in buying them chew toys, they will find their own in your hair, your feet, your pillow, your curtains, your entire house.

Thanks SunnyAgain! They are super cute and not too naughty. Yet!
They are called Mittens and Matilda, first named by DS and other by DDsmile
