Default Messy Eater

One of my cats has a habit of dragging the food from her plate onto the floor and then eating it, making a mess for me to clean up. I tried to break her out of that by putting the food back in her plate each time she did it, but she only got annoyed and slapped my hand. I tried putting her food in a baking pan, but she just drags it out of the pan onto the floor. What do I do? Thanks.

It's just her way. I have a cat who eats like this too, and have had others in the past who eat that way. Put her dish on a place mat, and just wash the place mat after she's done eating.

Here's a video of Mazy cat eating her kibble. Granted, kibble isn't as messy as canned food, but she is on prescription food, my other cats are on canned diets. Even when Mazy was on the same canned diet as them, she ate this way.

Sorry to hijack this thread Glen, but Gail I watched your vid - and all the others you loaded! I loved watching all your kits in action and it was lovely to see one of Bridge Angel Ootay, that's precious

I have a small towel under my cats' food bowls but sometimes Newt will drag food out of her bowl, across the towel and onto the floor to eat it.
Under no circumstances am I allowed to take the food off the floor and return it to the bowl.
I just let her get on with it then clean up after her. It's the easiest way!
