Odd Behaviour

Hello all,

A week and a half ago I took in a mama (a kitten herself - approx. 8 months) and her 2 (now 2 week old) kittens. She came from a barn (where there are still 4 other mamas + babies all of whom I'm also trying to get out of there and spayed...anyone want a kitten? ) but has adjusted to life inside pretty well. She is/was full of worms and skin and bones but has been dewormed and has all the soft food she will eat (which isn't as much as I would like) as well as free choice, good quality/grain free kibble (but she barely touches it) and water. She's slowly gaining a bit of weight and her bowel movements are getting much more normal so we're on the right track, I think.

BUT the odd behaviour comes when I give her the soft food. If I give her more than she wants, once she's done and there's a little bit left, she starts pawing all around her bowl like she's trying to cover it up - exactly as she does in her litter box. Has anyone seen this before? I'm more curious than anything but it can be a little annoying when I'm sleeping so if it's possible to stop, I will.
