Cat owners beware. If a woman named Lisa offers to babysit your cats for free, she has an ulterior motive. Lisa was one of the subjects of the season premiere of TLC's wacky "My Strange Addiction," spotlighted for her addiction to eating cat hair.

Lisa said first started eating cat hair in an effort to get closer to her cat. Now, 15 years later, she can't go more than a few hours without ingesting some of it. She finds it relaxing and comforting.

"It’s so soft and puffy and like cotton candy," she said. "Sometimes they do get stuck in your teeth, but you can just get ‘em out with flossing and brushing."

But it's not just eating cat hair for Lisa. She also grooms her cat ... with her tongue! That's getting the hair at the source.

The show took Lisa to a doctor to see if all that cat hair she'd been eating for so long had impacted her health in any way. She was warned that she could suffer serious stomach problems, and possibly need surgery if she doesn't stop. But that wasn't enough to get her to stop her bizarre habit.

See more wild and crazy things on "My Strange Addiction" every Wednesday at 10 p.m. EST on TLC.
