We just got a great little kitten. We also have a dog. I was fully prepared to sequester the cat food from the dog, since I know from experience that cat food is yummy for dogs but not very healthy (gives dogs urinary problems from high protein levels in cat food).
But I’ve run into an unexpected problem: the cat loves the dog’s food way more than the food we got for him. We got a fancy brand that the store said cats love, but he turns his nose up to it and goes to the dog’s bowl. There’s no way to hide the dog food from the cat! [They are both eating dry food, for the record].
I will try a new cat food brand to see if it helps. I’m fine with adding some expensive canned food to the cat’s diet if needed. But say he continues to eat the dog’s food in substantial amounts, how bad is it for him?
