Dog is eating the cat's food.
January 21, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have a dog and two cats. The cats don't eat their food all at once. I need help with a configuration in which I can feed the cats without the dog reaching their food. I don't have any available high counter space but I do have this crazy desk contraption where we've barricaded the food from the dog. Ugly! Help!

Install a high shelf that the cats can jump up on to eat. You might need to put them up there a couple times til they get it. Either that or train the dog. :)

A friend feeds her cats in the laundry room. A kitty flap in the door prevents the dogs from getting into that room.

We have two kitty doors. One in the laundry room door and one in the garage door. Cats go through the laundry room into the garage for their food and litter pans. The dog can't get through the doors

My daughter and her hubby bought a timer feeder. It releases the dry food at certain times of the day. They bought a small end table and put it in the laundry room and set it on that. I used to put my cat food in the laundry room and a baby gate across the doorway. Easy for the cats to get in, but not the dog.

I second the kitty door so that the dog cannot access the room with their food. We bought a house with one on the master bathroom door as that's was where they kept the litter box. We don't do that but we haven't replaced the door yet bc it's not noticeable and its cute watching our cats walk in and out of the flap. If you have basic white contractor doors they are cheap to replace so don't worry about resale.
