TLC’s “My Strange Addiction” features a woman named Lisa from Detroit that admits she is addicted to eating her cat’s fur, even licking it off her pet’s body directly!
The 43-year-old said she eats at least three hairballs a day, enjoying the soft texture in her mouth. Please note the video may cause gagging.
Lisa said she can’t go more than two hours without eating a wad of cat fur.
She said, “Just chewing it is relaxing,” she assured. “It’s a comforting feeling. (My cat’s) fur is such an interesting texture. It’s so soft and puffy and like cotton candy … almost.”
She describes the cat fluff as being “relatively clean” fur that has “much less of a flavor than even human hair.”
So where does this crazy cat lady get her delicious cat fur?
Lisa reveals she picks up cat hair off the floor, furniture, and cat perch, but sometimes takes it right from her cat’s body.
“I groom my cat with my tongue, like a momma cat would do with her kitten,” she said. “I don’t get as involved as another cat would. I’m not licking her butt.”
“My Strange Addiction” returns to TLC on Feb. 13.
