Ever since I adopted Russell I've noticed all the dog-like behaviour he has but one thing confuses me. After he's eaten a bit of his food and sometimes after drinking his water, he paws at the ground as if to bury the food. (The vet said that dogs were more inclined to do this and never heard of a cat doing it, but after living with two dogs recently, I'm not so sure dogs do it.)
I've asked the vet this and the best explanation is that Russell may have been feral or his mother may have been feral and he's doing it to hide and protect his food due to a lack of supply in the past. I would have thought that by now Russell would know that food is always there for him and that no one is about to take it away from him.
Is there anyone else out there that can give some other possible explanation?
