Cats are very sweet and cuddly animals (or at least they can be), but when it comes to food… don’t even think of coming near their bowl when they are eating. Sure you can try, but you better be ready for a fight.
Cats will not give up their food bowl so easily.
Two cats competing for a single bowl is a recipe for disaster. It inevitably leads to conflict. That is happening because cats are, by their nature, extremely protective of their food.
With that being said, I must admit that sometimes it can be really funny watching how competitive they can become over a bowl of cat food.
There are several approaches to the bowl defense, from playing tug of war with it, to various intimidation tactics designed to scare off “the enemy”, it’s hilarious.
Also, other kittens are not the only ones who are considered as threats. Some owners try to put their finger and pretend to take some of the food while they are eating… and you better believe it that doesn’t go unnoticed.
Cats are really the cutest, even when they are fighting over food it’s adorable. With their little paws and funny noises, you just have to love them.
But if you have two cats, go buy another bowl. Just in case!
Read these characteristics which almost all cat lovers have in common:
INTROVERTED AND SENSITIVE
It’s the nature of cats that they are not friends with everybody, and the same trait can be seen in their owners too. Usually, they live alone and are happy with their independent lifestyle. They are introverts but are comfortable hanging around with other people. However, they would need some me-time to relax and recharge.
CAT LOVERS LEAN TO LEFT
It has been observed that people with liberal political leanings prefer cats over dogs. You might be a liberal dog lover or a conservative cat owner; if you’re a liberal, you love cats and vice versa.
CAT OWNERS ARE OPEN-MINDED
Five traits – conscientiousness, neuroticism, extraversion, agreeableness, and openness are often seen in most cat lovers. As compared to dog owners, people who have cats as pets are more open and therefore, have greater artistic creativity.
Just like their pets, cat lovers seek attention from people around them. They like to be the centre of all conversations. At times, cat owners rely on their pets for emotional support.
THEY RESPECT CATS MORE THAN ANYONE
Cat people respect cats more than humans, in general. The saddest sight for a cat lover is to see the animal on the streets without a home. Cat lovers are often seen making a special effort to rescue or rehabilitate homeless cats.
