Lucy is a fairly typical cat. She sleeps, she eats, she poops. In typical cat like fashion she one could associate her daily behaviors with that of an infant. Her eating patterns on the other hand, are strictly Grazer level.
Grazer: eating from a single source of food, such as a food bowl. A single serving which is eaten at a slow pace to last approximately 10-ish hours.
7:45am – 1/4 Cup of kibble
5:45-6:15pm – 1/4 Cup of kibble
Generally what I find when I get home is that she hasn’t exactly eaten all her food from the morning serving. Today was my day off work so I fed her a little bit later, about 8:30am. I left the apartment about 4:45pm to see The MLS All Star team beat Bayern München 2-1. Totally awesome game!!!!!!!!!!
There was still kibble in her bowl, good for three or four mouth-fulls. Additional to the kitty fashion of eating, there was also a mouth-full or two of kibble strewn around the floor near her eating area. Upon returning this was all eaten. So I gave her dinner, wandered about the house for a few moments, she was crouched on the floor so I went and pet her, she flops over as usual…
aaaaand then she bit my toe.
