I have cats as well as my dogs. I tend to feed them all at the same time, so I don't forget anybody. Well, the cats are getting braver. I've taught the dogs from day one that the kitties are off limits for anything but licking, and the occasional chase that the cats initiate. The dogs have done really well, and they've even broke up catfights for us. Last night, Heidi (cat), walks up to Cerbie (dog) and attacks his face, to take a piece of food out of his mouth. It was celery, of all things. She got him where he just had a tooth pulled. My poor doggie. His mouth got red where she went after him, but it's fine now. I was wondering what those of you with multiple species homes do at feeding time? I usually have heidi in the hallway with the door closed bc she'll butt into the other cats meals, but nothing like this. I guess it's time to train the cats. I just don't know how to go about that.
