My cats Pickles and Koala free feed.* I have two small bowls of kibble

is this regular, it has to be deliberate.* To me, it makes the water
smell really fowl.

The mystery is, is one of the cats putting the kibble in the water
because they like the way the water tastes, or because they know the
other cat doesn't like it, and will then be forced to drink out of the
other water dish?

Hmmmm.* I am not sure except maybe one of them is looking for softer


I don't think so. I think there would be water around the bowl if they
tried to fish it out, and there are never more than three, and usually
just one or two.
