My kitten has developed some truly terrible table manners ! She'll sit at her bowl, reach into it with her front paw, scoop her food out (she has wet food) then holds her paw cupped and eats the food out of it . She's only started doing it recently but there seems to be no reason for it - she doesn't do it all the time, just sometimes decides she'd rather eat finger food . I've not seen another cat do this and wondered if it's just a kitten-ish quirk ? I've had dogs and rabbits all my life - she is my first cat - so naturally i panic and think that every sneeze is cat flu, every scratch will go septic and every fall will result in a broken limb !
