The Cat Diet

I’ve owned/cared for/pulled my hair out over cats for better than 20 years now. And I still don’t understand their eating habits.

If you’re a cat, you lick up the majority of the gravy and leave the canned meat. Granted, sometimes the meat needs to be chopped much finer. (see photo – the little gold bits are cheese; the big meat ones are actually dog-food-sized chunks). We have one rescue cat with such a bad case of asthma, he can’t chew chunks of food and breathe at the same time. So I cut up his food like on a human kitten’s plate. But all the others can chomp like champions, so why the gravy-only thing?

Is this their way of staying svelte? Would it work for us humans???
