Why does my cat like plastic bags? Read description.

She rubs her nose on the bag and I think she licks it too. Why does she do this? She is a domestic short hair if that helps.

i think its because that plastic bag has a scent of food all over it or left over bits of the food or sauce from a recently placed food which had attracted ur feline.

Sometimes I think it's the noise it makes when they play with it. I think they could be a little dangerous for a cat, so I'd try to keep them away from plastic bags.

Cats are very curious and love things that move.

One of our cats does the same thing. She seems to love the taste of certain types of plastic grocery bags. She is very picky. When she falls in love she is on it, in it, rubbing, licking and can barely be distracted. We just laugh at her because she has confused sacks with sex. When she is through we take it away so she doesn't eat it or otherwise kill herself with it. Our other two cats are completely mystified by her behavior too.
