Why do cats pretend to bury food (even after they ate it?)

Has your cat ever pretended to bury her/his food? Even after eating it? Like they are burying their waste? My lovely Lotto usually does that, and I heard many similar stories from the other cat owners. At first, I thought she is doing that because she didn’t like the food; but no, she is sometimes doing it after eating some.

First, they suspected a hacking attempt. But no, it was not hacking. Somebody from China were accessing their systems using Bob’s credentials. But who gave them these credentials?

Cat Grass

Cats often eat grass in the nature, my cats also eat a lot and it seems they really like it. It is not clear why cats eat grass. A few theories exist: one of them says that that habit has some evolutionary advantages: cats get extra niacin, a B vitamin abundantly available in most fresh young grain grasses. Some claim cats eat it to make themselves vomit. Some people believe cats eat grass to help pass fur balls along while others say they just need the fiber for other nutritional purposes. And some say cats eat it just because they like its taste or simply they like to “try” things.
