What I Learned from this Woman Who Eats Cat Hair

Posted by on Tue, Jan 29, 2013 at 11:16 AM

Here's what I learned from this video of a woman who eats cat hair (as featured in the TLC show, My Strange Addiction, returning Feb 13):

1) It's not The Mercury's Alison Hallett!

2) Cat hair tastes like cotton candy—almost.

3) Her sister Andromeda doesn't approve of her eating cat hair. And yet, her name is "Andromeda"! WHY SO JUDGE-Y, ANDROMEDA?? YOUR NAME IS ANDROMEDA!!!

4) Never mind #2—cat hair actually has more of a cotton ball taste. Even less of a taste than human hair, which we all know tastes like Salisbury Steak. OMG, I WOULD KILL FOR SOME SALISBURY STEAK RIGHT NOW!

5) The best way to eat cat hair is to lick it right off the cat. Well, of course it is, and... ALISON! Stop licking your cat!!!

Toxoplasmosis infection alters the brain of the victim so that they are attracted to felines. The next stage of the parasite's life cycle can only occur in the digestive system of a cat.

@8: Wrong. People with mental illnesses should be on TV, but not stereotyped or used as a freak show.

Well, my cat IS trying a new shampoo called "Carnival Cotton Candy" for cats. And she certianly seems to think her fur tastes AMAZING!! I mean after she showers she just starts in licking herself.

*picture various cats, assumed to be female* slow motion running across your screen, their fur bouncing along. An announcer comes on and says "Be all you can be! Make your fur..Cotton Candy!"*

Argh, this video is auto-playing on my iphone every time I load Slog. This last happened when you posted that Will Ferrell "What Would Drew Barrymore Like?" Video so obviously you have your very own, special (annoying) way of embedding videos.

Sounds like a pretty straightforward case of pica, the urge to eat things that aren't food.
