So, almost daily, my cat looks at me as if he's been starving for 25 days straight (but it's actually been hours at most), looking at me with huge eyes, making a pathetic "meow" sound to really make me feel sorry for him and give him fresh, high-quality food which he appears very excited about.
Then he eats two bites and goes away.
This happens again and again. You can never tell when he's just "begging for fun" or truly is hungry.
Why would a cat beg for food like this when he's clearly not hungry?
Please don't respond with "cats are just jerks" because that doesn't explain anything. I don't think my cat is "evil". He must have a reason for this.
