Cats are very sweet and cuddly animals (or at least they can be), but when it comes to food… don’t even think of coming near their bowl when they are eating. Sure you can try, but you better be ready for a fight.
Cats will not give up their food bowl so easily.
Two cats competing for a single bowl is a recipe for disaster. It inevitably leads to conflict. That is happening because cats are, by their nature, extremely protective of their food.
With that being said, I must admit that sometimes it can be really funny watching how competitive they can become over a bowl of cat food.
