Why does my cat scratch the floor when sniffing her food?

I have a kitten and whenever she sniffs her food, she scratches the floor around her bowl. Similar to the way the scratches the litter when using the bathroom. Any idea why she does that? 

Update:

She does love her food. I mix in a little wet food with it, kind that has real salmon and tuna and she eats it up but if she doesn’t finish then she’ll scratch around the floor

    She's trying to cover it up for later use. OR maybe she really doesn't like it and is giving you a hint.

    Assume it's throwback to when they knead mama as they suckle.
