Abstract [en]

Pica is a behavior that can be seen in several animal groups. In cats, it means that they are eating, chewing or licking on material that is non-food. In this study the data was collected through an online survey. In total 522 responses, of which 26% of the cats were exhibiting pica. It was found that 28% of the housecats and 26% of purebred cats exhibited pica. This study examined whether race or environment could be a factor determining when cats exhibit pica, but no significance was found. There are only a few earlier studies done on the subject. This makes it important to further investigate the factors that cause pica in cats.
