A Detroit, Michigan woman loves her cat’s hair. She loves it so much that she eats the cat’s hair!
Lisa, who is 43-years-old, says she likes eating her cat’s hair every two hours. She will eat it off the floor, off the couch, but she says the “best way” is licking her cat’s hair off it’s back.
The TLC preview above claims Lisa may have already digested around 3,200 hairballs since her addiction started.
Lisa will be featured on TLC’s “My Strange Addiction.”
According to Dr. Andre Fedida, a gastroenterologist in Newark, N.J., Lisa probably has a trichobezoar, which is a mass of hair in her digestive tract.
This bizarre behaviour may stem from people with psychiatric illness or developmental disabilities.
“It’s not a very common syndrome but it is a syndrome associated with psychiatric disorders,” Dr. Fedida said. “I’ve had probably a half-dozen patients like that, mostly females. They almost always have some underlying psychiatric disorder.”
Lisa’s strange addiction will be aired on TLC on February 13.
I don’t know what’s worse: eating bloody tampons, eating poop, or cat hair.
So, what’s your favourite food?
