kim: bonkers was a dirt-eater. to keep her out of the house plants, i put a layer of pebbles (the irridescent kind you put in fish bowls) on top of the dirt. worked like a charm.
of course, peanut is a pebble-eater. i often (but not always, as is evidenced by pebble poops) catch her chomping on one, and i take it away from her and throw it in the garbage. eventually, they'll be all gone.
peanut: shiny things look tasty to me.
