Neither of my cats throw up much,
but when we lived with another couple and their two cats (one of which was long-haired with chronic tummy troubles, and threw up a lot
), I noticed Spike would often cover up the other cats' spit-up. He would also try to eat it, to get rid of it if he couldn't find something appropriate to use as cover. My boyfriend was a little yicked out by this, until I explained that this was Spike's attempt to help "clean up" the mess. (I didn't have the heart to explain to my boyfriend that Spike wasn't doing it to help us
, but because he didn't want predators to find the spit-up and was protecting the other cats.) I've never seen my cats try to "bury" their food, but they're on scheduled feeding times and wolf everything down the instant it's put in front of them!
