  • Chris, put the cat's food someplace higher than the dog can reach, but, the cat cat find, and it will find it. The cat will be able to eat in peace and the problem with the dog will take care of itself. Kinda like outa sight, outa mind.

  • We can't wait to meet Sue, she sounds like a wonderful (if not hyper) addition to your family.

    Could you feed her inside, and the kitty outside?

    Or vice versa?

    She will calm down once she gets used to life on the farm.

    Tell Sue her Aunt Jenny says hello.

    Jenny B.,

    Believe it or not, the past couple of days I've been feeding the cat in the house before I go to work.

    For the best interest of everyone (probably mine!!), I don't think that will continue.

    Thanks for the advice, and come on down to the farm anytime you want.


  • Cat food has a much higher protein content, which is what draws dogs and other animals, but the excess protein is not good for dogs, of course.

    If your dog is 'running' at large, she is probably eating a variety of unknown things and needs 'dewormed' more often as well. Parasites maybe 'soaking' up all her nutrition.

    You may want to consider if she is so ravenous and running 'at large'....she is more likely to get into trouble, roam farther, get into neighbors trash and likely get shot at or hit by a car.

    Also, depending on what food you are feeding, you maybe surprised how little nutrition your pet is even getting. Check out some links to what the pet food industry can legally put in pet food. http://www.api4animals.org/facts.php?p=359&more=1

    Keep 'em safe and keep them healthy. (And yes, feed them apart!) You asked!
