haha i know, cats are very picky/delicate eaters, but i think our cat has some identity issues so he is starting to eat some table scraps like the dogs, just the other day we fed him a mcdonalds fry and he ate it ! but we r planning on moving after we sell the house...obviously lol so when we do im getting another cat, even though him and my smallest dog play together all the time !Additionally, you don't know how much they're eating. It's very possible the dog would eat ALL the food. Keeping a dog out of cat food is relativly easy, just put it up where the dog can't get. We used to have ours on top of the dryer. It would be harder to keep a cat out of dog food, but I've never heard of that happening.
