There it is. Your precious kitty sitting in an adorable unusual pose. So cute, you think, I must capture this. Rats, the camera is across the room. So you get up, trying not to disturb the little darling. You get the camera and carefully make your way back. You open the camera, and it makes it's loud whirring sound that all cats know and do their best to run from. Ah, but this time, sweet kitty stays exactly where he was throughout the whole process.
Now you are ready to take the picture, you lift the camera and... he turns! Little brat! It's like he KNEW the EXACT moment you'd be snapping the picture and chose, ON PURPOSE, to move right then! Argh! Brat again!
Well, fine, Mr. Leo the Chinese Lion (yup, irritated enough to use his full name!), if you don't want me to take the picture of you leaning back, arm hooked over the rim, giving your best combination of the Most Interesting Mancat Alive and a "How you doin' ladycats?" pose, then I'm gonna take the picture anyway! So there!
"Back of disrespect?" Meet "Mommy's posting the picture anyway"!
I have a question, survey, poll, whatever you want to call it. My curiosity really.
For those of you who feed canned food, either as a snack or meal, if you serve pate' style food, do you break it up or serve it in the shape it comes in the can?
I'm curious because I can't figure out if breaking it up is a problem for my kitties, Cashmere in particular.
All of my kitties have some degree of under bite. Runs in the family I guess. :)
Cashmere is always longest at the snack dishes but she's the lightest of the three. I thought maybe she was having issues with the food getting smooshed into the corners, so we bought shallow bowls. They don't seem to make much difference, though the first night they managed to scooch a bunch of the food off the plates and onto the floor..
I usually broke up the pate' style when they have that, but tonight I left it whole. Well, cut into thirds because they each get their own dish. And at first it seemed Cashmere was confused, but one she started biting the edge, she got right into it. She stayed at her dish longer than normal (she always changes dishes, whether anyone wants to trade with her or not.) Leo, who never eats much of his snack, stayed and ate longer as well. Now, this could just mean he liked this one better. But Cashmere not trading quickly, that was unusual. But was she responding to the change in presentation or was it easier to eat?
I'm probably over analyzing and making a big deal of nothing. They are all healthy kitties at healthy weights and what I'm seeing as possible issues are probably just quirks and idiosyncrasies.
Back to the question! Do you break it up or serve 'whole'?
