I am giving my cats a third meal at noon. This is very small and intended to give them a variety of protein sources. They get 1 small can shared between them for mid day snack.

I decided to line up the cans on a lower shelf. Let the 13 year old see them and when I select one. I pop the top for him to smell. I wondered how long until he would want to make his own choice. Could he then identify the can and communicate which one he wanted?

About ten days into the experiment, he showed me which can he wanted.
Not what I was expecting, yet it makes sense to him. Bigger is better.

Disclaimer: Yes image is staged. He used his paw and knocked the big can of chili beans over when he chose.
