It is seldom that you come across a cat who eats like a dog…
Finicky creatures by and large they nibble a the edges and seldom finish what you put out however much or little that might be. It is as if they have some feline etiquette that demands they leave a certain amount on the plate.
I was feeding a neighbour’s cats whilst they had been away last weekend. One upstairs cat and one downstairs cat. (Don’t ask.) So… I put food down for kitchen-kitty and trundled upstairs to feed other-kitty; say hello; refresh water etc.
By the time I’ve got back downstairs kitchen-kitty had cleared her plate – an entire sachet of Felix in two minutes : three tops. That was one hungry cat!
