Can and do domestic cats lie? — 2 Comments

  1. I think my cat, Manfred, lies, or else he forgets conveniently. I’ve trained him to know that I won’t give him more kibble until he’s eaten what I’ve already given him. Because I don’t want him to get too fat again. He comes into my bedroom and whines at me, so then I go and see if he’s eaten all of the kibble and if he has, I give him another heaping teaspoon of senior cat kibble. Sometimes he comes in and whines for more kibble when he has barely touched what he already has. I doubt that he’s forgotten that he hasn’t eaten all of his kibble. He never forgets if his bowl really is empty.
