Everything licked clean sounds like a cat. Hogs are messy eaters with poor eyesight and will usually leave some remnants of food or do their business close by. If you don’t want to go to the expense of a trail camera you could try making a footprint tunnel to see who your visitors are.
I found it impossible to keep the cats away using cat food, I now put Ark dry hedgehog biscuits out in the open and the neighbourhood cats never show any interest.
As for the food being moved to the water dish I don’t know about that but I’ve never seen it in my garden.
