Growling over the bowl

I noticed my neck and shoulder muscles tensing up while I eat. Maybe it’s triggered by chewing my food, and engaging the jaw muscles causes all the muscles in the vicinity to engage as well. Or is it a vestigial animal reaction? The dogs are always on guard when eating, protecting the bowl and keeping an eye out in case another animal approaches. A fierce warning growl rumbles out of Kieran if the cat comes into the room at mealtime. She’s far too picky to touch dog food, but eating is serious business in the animal world.
