Here’s something I’ve always wondered: Do your cats have their own bowls or do they eat from the same one? I ask because ours always insist on eating from the same bowl.
We started out giving them their own bowls, but the younger one (Coco) would always stick her face in the food first and the older one (Misu — they are 1.5 years apart) would always wait until Coco was done before eating. She just won’t touch the food, even when there is a whole other bowl available. She’d rather queue for the one that’s currently being used.
This doesn’t make much of a difference because they are both eating adequate amounts and we use the same food on both of them, but I always thought it was a little odd. I’ve even seen them eat from the same small bowl simultaneously before — they both seem very comfortable with this sharing routine and are not impatient with each other at all. From what I have read elsewhere, though, this is somewhat abnormal.
PS. Gratuitous cat photos, because I can’t help it 🙂
