    That made me laugh out loud, Karen. I love the thought of a kitty picking the kibble out of her bowl to eat it.

      It’s pretty funny to watch. She’s so dainty about it, too. I have the cats’ food bowl on the file cabinet behind me in my office. When Sammy is particularly lazy she’ll jump up there and meow at me until I take 4 or 5 little bits of kibble out of the bowl for her so she can gobble them up. My husband and I call it “feeding the squirrel.”

    Hilarious post, Karen! I have a picky eater too. My dog, Maximus, won’t eat brown dog food! He’ll go through and pick out all the brown pieces and spit them out on the floor. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find non-brown dog food?! We tried making him eat it, but he’ll go days without eating if it’s only brown food in his bowl…and I can’t handle him starving himself over colors. So we spoil him. Once he’s picked out the colored bits, we’ll throw the leftover brown ones >.<

      Wow! That’s a new one on me. LOL. Is he okay with beige? The canned food we give Kinsey is beige-ish. Or at least the chicken flavor is. So is the dry food. It’s made by Solid Gold. Expensive, but she loves it, however she’ll eat pretty much anything except lettuce. You’ll find it in specialty pet food stores.

      Aww, your dog is so cute. He has an underbite? :) My sister-in-law has a dog like that. He’s part chiuahuah and part pug.

    Ed Gumji, my cat, drinks water the same way and he taught the kittens to do it as well. We have a food tower for them and each one has their own way of getting kibble out of it. They are funny and always individual.
