Cats are fastidious—everyone knows that. Well, except for wild cats. Why would I mention wild cats? Because the domestic cat shares nearly 96 percent of his DNA with the tiger. Have you ever seen a documentary featuring wild lions, tigers, and other large cats eating a meal? They are not dainty eaters. They come away covered in blood and… Then they wash themselves. It’s imperative that they keep themselves clean so their predators or antagonizers don’t find them.
Domestic cats are known to be the most finicky animals around. They lick and wash constantly—after meals, after a potty break, after a play session or a petting session, before bed, when they wake up. You rarely see a dirty cat unless she’s sick or aging. But I have to tell you there are cats who literally dive into their food and the results are hilarious. https://welovecatsandkittens.com/cat-pictures/24-funny-pictures-of-cats-making-a-mess-when-eating/ If you want a chuckle, you must spend a few minutes at this site.
