The Kibble Quibble
I'd like to present a little back-story before you read the following cat-comic. Saffy and Cosmo eat canned food only...twice a day. They are subject to weight issues and completely binge if a snackin' bowl is left for them to eat at their leisure. Seriously -- they'd wolf the food and then hack it up five minutes later on the living room carpet (you see, they usually don't demonstrate the courtesy of hacking on the linoleum).
Phoebe, on the other hand, refuses canned food and prefers the kibble-nibble method. The vet assured me that some cats just don't like wet food and are true nibblers -- that's Phoebe. Because Saffy and Cosmo would inhale all of Phoebe's food, we can't allow her to snack throughout the day. Additionally, she won't eat food served in a bowl; she wants to have it presented a tiny bit at a time, throughout the day...and she wants to eat if off the floor. While she eats, the other two cats zero in on her like hyenas, waiting for her to finish so they can descend upon the crumbs.
Got it? Good. Read on...
