Food Nuggets





Chuck and Angel have this weird habit of making nuggets or balls out of their food.  Must have something to do with the way their tongues swipe at the mushy mess, but it's a bit puzzling just the same.  In the end, they always come back and eat up those too, leaving only bitty dry crusts stuck to the bowls.  Oh well; no harm, no foul...it's just another cat thing that make humans shrug their shoulders!

By the way, we use Corning Sidekicks as cat food bowls; the sides are low for no whisker fatigue, and they wash up like a dream (or, so The Hubby says...)  The bottoms are smooth; so many bowls made especially for cats have rough or scratchy bottoms that would mark the wood floors.  We already had several Sidekicks in the house to press into cat bowl service, and I purchase any that I find while out at the resale shops, if they are in good shape and cost $2.

  2. Yes! Those are great bowls to use and perfect for not wearing out the whiskers (like our sister Pia suffers from). Mmmm, nuggets...

  3. Jenna just licks her food off the plate then goes back later to eat it off her plastic placemat. I'll have to keep my eyes open for some Sidekicks.

  6. We've never done that with our foods. Strange!

  7. Nope, that's not something we do either. But we get dinner in Corning Ware too and have for eons--only ours are the little berry bowls. We do have a few other fancy cat dishes but we like that we can see all our food against the white. Because that's the most important thing, you know.

  8. nice of you looking after the whiskers like that. a very important part of the cat, the whiskers, and often overlooked. we have a few similar bowls that we use in the bowl rotation, however our kitties don't play with their food - they gobble it up!

  9. Those bowls look great - we have ceramic bowls here but they are on feeding stations. Our floors are all scratched up anyway....... And those pellets look interesting - generally food doesn't hang around long enough for us to do that (Veikko and Seppo are piggies)
