Gracie is such a messy eater anyway... and we do serve her a combo of dry and wet food. She is much more consistent eater when we use a small saucer instead of a bowl of any type.... not sure why. Anyway, she ALWAYS ends up with some wet food on her ear fur especially and it can get really tough to get out if you miss it right away. Any good tricks to keep her ears out of the food? A head band???
