Please sir, can I have some more?

When Buddy thinks it’s time to be fed, (starting around an hour before it’s time to be fed) he comes over and stands on the floor looking at me, with his one paw up. The paw up always means, “Feed me.” He doesn’t use it on any other occasion. Here he is asking to be fed, except Finney temporarily distracted him by flipping on his back. But notice that the paw stayed up. (I’m also noticing the scratches on the leg of my nice coffee table. Dudes. Quit it.)
