Cat Swallowing Food Kibbles Whole

My 2 year old cat (with good teeth) used to chew his tiny pieces of dried food (kibble) normally, (we'd hear "crunch-crunch" when he ate). But these days he just swallows the kibble whole. Do your cats also swallow their dried food whole or is something wrong?

Here's a picture of Smokey stalking his prey. He's quite the hunter, last week he caught a baby bunny in our back yard. Thankfully the bunny was okay (after we got him out of Smokey's mouth!)

My sister's cat has a lot of tooth and gum problems and they happen quickly. Maybe your cat needs another check. Hope he will be OK. He's a handsome fella!

Please take your cat to the vet for a check. It is not normal for them to swallow there food whole, maybe use wet food until you can get there. I would go as soon as possible. Good luck!

Did you get another pet? I have 4 cats and they race to finish their meals first.

He who eats fastest eats most - and they often swallow their food whole.

The vet just checked my cat's mouth 2 weeks ago & she said it looked okay. And, no, I don't have another cat. He's my only pride & joy (with fur)... He even eats his food whole when I give him kibble from my hand... I'm wondering if the vet may have overlooked something...

I've also wondered the same thing! I have one cat that "crunches", one that is silent, and one that does both. Nothing is wrong with their teeth/gums, I think it's just the way they choose to eat!

...the mire they like the kibble,the more likely they want to swallow it whole in my experience.Definitely not always due to bad teeth!
