Take notes before Thanksgiving, everybody.

1. This corgi likes to dance with his food.

Some dogs, like Sparky the corgi, celebrate their love of eating with super-excited moves. Sparky even takes his breakfast for a little ride.

2. This kitten has a paws-on approach to drinking.

Who really knows how you're supposed to use a bowl, anyway? This kitty first experiments with one front paw in the bowl, then climbs in to really get a feel for the meal.

3. These bats use dinnertime as an excuse for cuddles.

These curious little bat orphans are being fed and reared (and snuggled) at the Australian Bat Clinic and Wildlife Trauma Centre until they can be released back into the wild.

4. These baby sloths really get into their meal.

According to these rescued baby sloths at the Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica, eating your veggies involves getting up close and personal; don't hesitate to lie in your bowl if necessary. But you may have to lift your head on occasion to sample someone else's dish - just in case they've got something better.

7. This cat plays with her food - literally.

OK, so this last one's not actually food, but don't tell Ashley! This kitty snuggles - and then gets into serious playtime mode - with her stuffed corn on the cob. (Note that for domestic cats, the consumption of actual corn is associated with digestive disorders, diabetes and obesity, among other problems. So make sure all of kitty's corn is of the toy variety only!)
