They usually do, but may leave one occasionally when interrupted, particularly if they are nosey buns and there's something interesting that attracts them.

They need to re-ingest them to get all the goodness so shouldn't be leaving loads of them.

Smudge sometimes leave his when he's on some medications, not sure if it makes them taste odd or something xx

Mine seem to eat them when they are very fresh, but like the other post says, if they get distracted then they get left. My Barney left loads of his when he was on Covenia.
