Q: Teething kittens

I'm thinking this is a teething issue. My kitten chews on everything, books, anything in your hand, the flap on the couch and even the dogs tug rope. This is just teething right? Or do I need to get my cat a chewy toy?

Also, and I am by no means a cat authority, but I wonder if like other baby animals and humans, your kitten is just exploring and investigating her world?

you should probably take your kitten to the vet just to make sure that there is not teeth that are bad. Yes kittens can chew. However, it is not a common thing for them to chew on things such as you listed. It could be possible that there is a problem that she is having with her teeth. Not a big worry but I would have it looked at just to be safe!

How small are they? I haven't heard of teething kittens - but it makes sense. Ask a vet.
