"Feeding behavior corresponds to all the motor sequences from the search for food, its recognition, acceptance and intake. It thus begins with exploration and ends with swallowing. Although feeding behavior is well studied in domestication and production, only empirical data or anthropomorphic analysis is available for cats. Some recent scientific experiments, essentially performed by petfood manufacturers, are completing the scope of data available in pets."
