Question Something New That Seems Odd

Pablo has started doing something new here over the last week that seems odd. Every night he flips over his food bowl and pushes underneath his exercise wheel. I find it there every morning. I know he likes his food, because he eats it fine. Is he trying to tell me something? Should I be worried? Or is he just playing with his food?

Could just be him.being annoying, but if you think it could be a sign then take him to vet to get him a health check.
Holly used to tip hers over and pull it into her bed! She broke out of it but still does it sometimes.

It could be nothing or it could be a sign of something being wrong.

I'm wondering if it could be that the bowl itself is just too lightweight and he's tipping it over by accident when he goes for something to eat. And the flipping scares him a bit and he defends himself by pushing the bowl under his wheel.

What kind of bowl do you have? Perhaps you could try a ceramic food bowl.

It's a small plastic bowl.

Holly use to purposely tip hers over along with her with her water!! I taped them down and it broke that habit she had. It could just be that! Or it could be as your saying try having it stuck down.

Plastic bowls are pretty easy to flip over. Try out using something on the heavier side. I use ceramic bowls for my boy and personally I've never seen it get flipped over.

My dog likes to something similar. She likes to step into her water with her front legs when she wants a drink.
