Is Your Cat Not Finishing/ Wasting Their Food?

Hi everybody,

Has anyone else noticed that when your cat is eating, he/she is unintentionally pushing the food away with their tongue to the back of the bowl, and eventually gets frustrated and ends up walking off?

Pretty much everyday after i've fed my cats, the food left over is always pushed to the back of the bowls.

I actually stood and watched them eat yesterday and found that when i manually turn the bowl around half way through their meal, they finished that whole thing.

Handy trick to ensure you aren't wasting/throwing away food daily.

Quite interesting, just wondering if anyone else has noticed this :)

Yes, I'm always scooping stuff off the floor and the rim of the dish, and making little piles of 'seconds.' Turning the dish around is a good idea, but I have a nervous boy who won't come out to eat if I'm in the room. I'll try a plate tomorrow. Then there's the guy who refuses to eat dry food in a dish... flings it out and eats it off the floor. (But of course not all of it!) Cats!
