Animals eating clay

The practice of eating clay is widespread amongst both humans and animals. In this video, you will see animals instinctively eating clay in the wild. Clay is a staple food in the diets of many different species of mammals. No one forces these wild animals to eat clay - they do it because it just makes them feel better. Many of the foods that animals consume, such as leaves and seeds, contain toxins and poisons that can cause upset stomachs, digestive problems, and even death for a wide variety of them. To neutralise and buffer the toxins that animals ingest, they instinctively know to eat clay regularly. For elephants, monkeys, parrots, buffalo, and deer, clay is a lifesaving substance, and they will travel vast distances, risking their lives to obtain it.

    Hi, my cat wants to eat his bentonite litter. I think he wants to eat clay. So I want to help him to buy a clay. How can I give him clay to eat? Just small pieces? Or with water as liquid? Can you tell me the way? Thank you
