why does my cat love nail files?

Is it normal? The cat regularly steals the nail file and goes bonkers if anyone files their nails - she loves the smell.
Anyone else have the same experience or is our cat just keen to encourage regular nail maintainence!

Re: why does my cat love nail files?

Only one of mine has this mania. She can hear my filing or clipping my nails from wherever she is, she comes flying to me and either eats the nail clipping (finger or toe she's not bothered) and if i'm filing she has her face right in the middle trying to bite the file. I'm glad shes not the only one, wonder what it is in nail filings and clippings that are so tempting for cats?

Mine all love nail files- I've lost count of the number of packs I've bought that mysteriously disappear
Probably a cheap option for a cat Christmas present

Re: why does my cat love nail files?

well, its good to know it's a 'cat' thing - thought it would look a bit odd dropping her off at the cattery with a 'comfort blanket' and a couple of nail files....might think she was hatching an escape!!!
