I mentioned before that Chris started knocking his bowl over because he was too lazy to get up and eat standing up. It was limited to the Bowl on the end so I started keeping very little food in that bowl. Of course, as usual, whenever we compensate for one of Chris’s bad behaviors he compensates for our compensation.
My wife sometimes doesn’t sleep well and gets up for a couple of hours in the middle of the night. She was up very early this morning and came back to bed when I got up. When I walked out to the dining room I saw all three cat bowls sitting on the table and a bunch of cat food on the floor inside the catch-all mat. I picked up the mat and dumped all of the food back into one of the bowls and put it back down on the floor.
A little bit later I looked down and saw this.
Rose told me later than he had dumped over all three of the bowls. We now need to compensate for his compensation of our compensation. Perhaps I will look for those bowls on a raised wooden block like we had before.
Chris says, “I’ll show you!” Maybe don’t leave any food out at night for the kitties?
They have an early dinner of wet food and I try not to give them anything until bedtime when I give them just a little dry food. I suspect my wife gave them more so Chris wouldn’t bother her.
He’s learned the fine art of “one-upmanship” ! Teddy thankfully doesn’t knock his raised bowl over – it has wet food in it and would be a big mess. He really does like the raised bowl though – he can sit and eat comfortably. Good luck curing Chris of his latest “thing” !!
Thanks, I’ll need it.

You cats are too smart for me.
Oh Chris! What a mess. I actually like to eat from the floor. Maybe you should try that… Sometimes Mom spills a little food for me on purpose, so I will eat that first then move on to my bowl.
Love and licks,
Does she leave a trail to your bowl? 🙂
He’s a stinker!
That is the perfect word for him.
It might be easier if you just dump it on the floor and maybe Chris would put it back in the bowl.
I thought of that.
Is Chris displaying displeasure or just be “cute?”
He learned how easy the bowls tip over and now maybe he is just enjoying being bad like he was in his youth.
Ah. Makes sense…
I am sure Chris will find a way around a raised bowl too. 🙂
I hope not. The cycle has to end somewhere, but who will win?
He looks rather disgruntled
The food was probably twenty minutes old.
Best wishes for winning the battles!
woo chris… you must be related with da nelly… he does that too … even with wet food (uaaah!)
maybe he’s trying to tell you he doesn’t care for the food? lol!! I’m sorry, but that’s pretty funny!
He’s a load of laughs. 🙂
