    He just turned a year, found the hole just a few mins ago. Moved a desk in front of it to keep him from chewing more. Is there something in the wall he is going after? I am wondering where the pieces of drywall are - none to be found, did he eat them? He removed some paint and a like a few months ago in this same room.
    He was a feral kitten 3 - 4 weeks old when I got him, handfed him etc.

    My first thought was check with your vet.
    My second thought is to look online and do
    some research on cats doing that sort of thing.
    I've never heard of it but I've also never had
    a feral kitty.
    Poor thing!!

    I looked on line, there were things like mice in the wall from people having cats chew - but I don't have mice so maybe bugs? Cats have keen hearing.
    His mom abandoned him after the dogs found him and his 3 siblings in the runway, he decided to crawl thru the fence and I had to go get him to put him back with the others.
    I put a blanket out as it was chilly at night and they were on wet ground.
    Also left a bowl of food out for mom, she ate and took off with the other 3 kittens leaving him behind. So I brought him in.

    Sorry that I can't help with any advice. Many years ago, I met a person that told me when her Airedale was a puppy, she had to learn how to repair sheetrock. The puppy chewed through so many times, she just learned how to fix it.

    One of my Shelties did that. SHe outgrew it though.
    Just read where when chats chew non food items it can mean they are bored, want more attention etc.

    I agree, just made him a fast kick bag. Had seen them in catalogs for $6. Used scrap material, sewed up 3 sides and poured a bag of catnip into it, sewed the top and gave it to him. HE LOVES IT! Is going ga ga over this new item.
