This is how I found Abbi's bowl yesterday morning after she'd finished... err... took a break from her breakfast. I know it's shocking, but, yes, Abbi sometimes takes a break from inhaling her food.
I think it's so cute when Abbi puts a friend in her bowl. Livia often does the same thing. While I know this behavior is left over from when cats lived in the wild and they had to hide their food to keep themselves and/or their hard-won kill safe, I think it's adorable when I see this behavior in my spoiled house babies.
