  • For some reason dogs love cat food. The only way to stop it is to keep it where they can't get it cause even if a dog is full on his own food he will still eat the cat's food cause he's a dog.

  • Put the cats bowl where the dog can't reach it.

  • You have to put it where the dog cannot get it. Our cat's food is on the top of daughter's desk. The cat can reach it, but the dog cannot.

  • keep the cat food up where the dog can't get to it. I keep the cat bowls on a shelf above my dryer so that they can eat and the dogs can't get to it.

  • Put the cat bowl up on top of the washing machine or something as equally high.

  • Can you believe I didn't even think of that? Probably because my husband gets really irritated if the cats go on the counters or table. I'll put them on the freezer. Thanks!
