Benson is my newest cat and he is exhibiting a behavior I have never seen in my 33 years of owning cats. He scratches the floor with his front paws right in front of the water dish. He does this for about 30 seconds and then has his drink of water. I know he is in good health as I rescued him just a few weeks ago from the vet and they did a thorough exam on him before they sent him home with me. He is declawed, could this have something to do with it? I have never owned a declawed cat before so I don't know if they have any strange behaviors related to their declawing? Has anyone ever seen this before?
