I think it's that simple, tbh.

Simpler explanation maybe - kibble nuggets can bounce. My cat
will often go after them, but not always (I have to pick them
up and put them back in the bowl).

How far apart the bowls?


Maybe 6-8 inches.* I do find kibble on the floor too.* However, there is
always at least one piece in the water and never more than three. Usually
it's two.* That just doesn't seem random to me.


And three much less two kibbles is a bit much to be in its mouth
to make it to the water bowl, though eat-drink-repat in one or more
eating sessions might do it. (So much for the dainty eting rep...)

My cat's kibbles are roundish and bounce and roll well, too well
when stepped on with bare feet in the dark.

I suggest setting up a camera.


The kibbles my cats get are also round. Because of the suggestion, I
moved the water bowl a little farther from the food dishes. They were
all in a straight line. Now the water dish is a few inches away from
the line. Since I've done that, I've found two pieces of kibble in the
water once, one a couple of times, and there have been a couple of days
when there were none at all. I suspect bouncing was the answer after all.

We found a kibble on the stairs today, so I don't think it was a bounce. They're fairly large, so I'm not sure how it would have gotten stuck in her teeth.

They're probably beaming little pieces of kibble while communing with
the mothership. In the slow blink of a kitty eye, it's over there.

We must remain vigilent!

The only things transported in my house seem to be golf balls or other
toys in the living room. I wake up in the morning and things have been
moved around. There's a perfectly logical explanation for that: she
plays when I'm asleep.
