One of our cats seems to like eating and drinking from his paw

We've recently noticed Skitter scooping food from the bowl w/ his paw curled under and successfully put it in his mouth. Not only food but he will often dip his paw in the water bowl and then lick it. You reckon he's been watching us eat too much.

Enzo does that all the time!!! It drives me crazy because it takes him so long to do anything! I tell him if he would just eat like every other normal cat it things would be much easier for him!

Kiko does this all of the time, too.

Jack does it a lot... I can always tell when he's eating dry food if there's a mat under the bowl... they fall and make noise.

I call it Fishing.

Milo does that too. He soaks his whole paw and then walks around and makes everything wet.

Yup... when Jack does it, he stands next to the bowl, his head cocked to one side, staring at the bowl. He lifts a paw and 'dabs' at the food, then pulls some up the side of the bowl. When it reaches the edge, it drops to the floor or mat below. Then, he eats it from the floor.

Yes, I have strange kitties...

Oliver doesn't pick up food with his paw, but he will dip his paw in the water dish and lick the water off his paw. This gets very annoying, because either food or litter gets into the water and I have to change it constantly!

I've never seen Rocky do it, though.
