If McDonalds without prior announcement started serving Big Macs in brown paper wrap instead of whatever they use now sales would decline, maybe a lot, and it would absolutely make the news, probably the front page. Packaging matters - it's a multi-billion dollar industry - packaging and "branding". Cats may be crazy but their allegedly smarter two-legged mammalian cousins give them plenty of company.

Actually most studies seem to suggest cats are fairly dim-witted. They do have a surprising number of neurons but most seem to be dedicated to sensory input rather than problem solving. So it is unsurprising that a cat who is acutely aware of what it's food dish looks smells and feels like would balk at a replacement. Cats also have around 16 hours of object permanence so they will remember what their food dish looks/smells/feels like.

As opposed Dogs have larger brains (and that keeps expanding though domesticated cats brains have changed little) however they have fewer neurons. But dogs use more of their neurons for problem solving dedicating to either eyesight or Olfactory rather than both. Dogs have a lot of brain power tied up in social functions, being pack animals, and are closely in tune with Human emotions.
Which is why you can change a dogs food bowl with no issue, they go more by your actions rather than a set this is how food works that cats use.

Yesterday all the white bows were dirty, I got lazy and put down a brownish bowl with her food in it. She looked at the bowl like it was some strange thing from another world. She was actually scared of the brown bowl and gave it a wide berth, avoiding it at all costs. I quickly washed out her white, oblong bowl and put her food in it. She was happy again.

Cats are crazy.

She didn't want to get your cooties, I can't blame her. When I opened the thread I thunk it said a cat bowel problem Eyes getting old!

Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,

Cats are the best. They're independent and lazy and don't need nobody, no way, no how. I can relate Rolleyes

No, but seriously, I love cats (not to the point of ending up like a crazy cat lady though. Too much responsibility for me. Rolleyes )
Actually my cats weren't scared of cucumbers. They ate cucumbers though
and potato soup, and bananas... Cats are just weird. That's all really.
