Cat Eats Ambidextrously

(YouTube link)

YouTube member bikemystic gives us a play-by-play analysis while his cat Scoop eats her dinner. I’m not surprised that Scoop has idiosyncrasies about eating, because so many cats do. What’s amazing is the range and imagination of those habits. I have (or have had) cats that

* only will drink water by dipping and licking her paw.
* hides her toys in the food dish. A dish she has to share.
* cries for food only when one of the other cats is hungry.
* won’t eat inside, but will come inside to ask for food.
* likes to turn the water dish over, so we had to put a brick in it.
* has to transfer food to “her” dish before eating it.
* takes a mouthful, then goes into another room to chew it alone.
* eats raw potatoes, but has to chew off the peel and spit it out first.

In case you are wondering, Scoop was not named after her eating habits. She came with that name before the habit developed. It just worked out. -via Tastefully Offensive

We had a cat who loved Froot Loops. Every morning daughter #2 (who would only eat Froot Loops for breakfast) would leave a few loops floating. Leo would delicately pick them out, using only one claw. Another cat so loved cantaloupe that if I left one on the counter, he would eat through the rind. One was crazy about peas, and could smell them cooking through closed windows and doors. Another loved Chinese food. Still another loved pretzels. I could go on, but you get the idea.
