Cat behavior


If there is anyone out there that knows anything about cats, I would like to know why one might drop a piece of their food into their water bowl. As far as I can tell, it is not to soften it or for later consumption.

    He was a feral for about 4-5 months, but he never retrieves the food.

    Yes, he is mine. His name is Larry, and he is so loving.

    I think you may be right. It could be behavior that he can't unlearn. He also pretends to "hunt and kill" little pieces of meat that I give him.
