cat trying to bury food

Why do cats try to bury their food?

Answer by Kate
well they don't as general rule. i haven't personally seen this behavior and so cannot comment much. All i can assume is that you may have a particularly nervous cat or one that was once a stray and is worried about other cats coming and eating his food.

perhaps other visitors will be able to comment further if they have witnessed this behavior themselves.

best wishes Kate
