Both my cats, domestic rescue cats, love to chew on plastic bags. Do you think they just like the crinkle sound?

I think they just like the sound too, but I'd try my best to keep the bags away from your kitties!

I'm not sure why some cats chew on plastic bags. I have two cats and one loves to do it and the other never goes near them. I try to keep them out of sight, but he is a smart cat and if he sees an opportunity to chew on one he does.

I had three part-Siamese cats who loved to lick plastic bags. They were the only ones that ever did this, so I don't know if it's common with the breed or what. Jimmy, the cat I have now, likes to play in the bags and sometimes tears them, but doesn't eat or lick on them.
