I just caught my cat eating the newspaper. Or maybe just shredding it for some reason. Is this normal feline behaviour, or is she trying to tell us something?

It's pretty normal. How old is she? I find that cats tend to do the shredding thing more when they're kittens, but some of them never really grow out of it. My friend Karen's just got a new kitten, and it's in the shredding phase - we've had to take to grabbing the newspaper as it comes through the door, otherwise Smokey will render it unreadable in short order.

She's fully-grown, with kittens who are fully grown and happily rehomed. So I guess she must just be one of those who never grew out of it. She still chases her tail, too.

perhaps she is trying to tell you 'I'm rather peckish.'

Yup, that's normal. Wait till she starts burrowing into it.
