We don’t eat kibble around here, but scientific study has shown that cats who do eat kibble can lose weight with feeding enrichment like puzzle feeders. Using some kibble usually reserved for occasional treats for Pierre, Newton tried out a puzzle feeder intended for feeding kibble. As usual, things didn’t go quite as planned.
Newton: I know there has to be a way to get this food out of here…
Pierre: I don’t think that’s how it’s supposed to work.
Newton: It works to give me some treats. You’re just jealous. I’m going to take what’s left of my puzzle feeder and my kibble under the bed where you can’t stare at me eating. Didn’t anyone tell you it’s rude to stare?
Pierre: Are you going to share that smorgasbord?
Newton: I don’t see your name on it…
Newton: ** SIGH **
