Talk about a silly cat...

My cat Squirt, who you may have read in a past discussion how he got his name when he was a tiny little thing and now he's a 30 pound lion is worse than a little kid! I feed my two cats separately; I put the dish for Sissy, Squirt's big "sister" who is half his size (or smaller) in the dining room right by where my computer is and Squirt's is out in the kitchen. I'm trying to keep close track of what I feed both of them because they're both fat so I take the cat food from the big bag out on the back porch and put it in a plastic container every two days or so, then I put some in each of their dishes according to the chart on the bag for their weight. Everytime I turn around Squirt's here eating from Sissy's dish! I tell him to go get his own food and "walk" him out to the kitchen. He knows what to do, usually he walks right on out in front of me, then he gets to his dish and turns his nose up and walks away! So, I put Sissy's dish up so he can't get it. Of course, within minutes after I do that Sissy is here looking for her food so I put it back down for her. After she's done eating and walks away Squirt comes right back and we go through the same thing again. He thinks her food is better than his for some reason! It's so funny because Sissy's always "beating up" on Squirt for no reason at all but she lets him get away with stealing her food all the time. What can I do with these silly cats! Annie

Maybe Squirt just doesnt like having to eat in the kitchen alone. Maybe you could feed them both at the same time in the same place at certain times every day. In stead of just leaving the dishes down all the time. Our problem is the dog trying to eat the cat food,so we have to feed the kitten up high.Anmials are alot of fun though.

I used to do that but they both, especially Squirt would try to open the cupboard where the food is. I've tried to block the door with everything I could think of but he was determined. I had a dog once the would NOT eat dog food but was always trying to steal the cat food. Then I heard it wasn't healthy for dogs so I'd keep it away from him but he still only would eat table scraps, no dog food for Trouble. He like everything but carrots and kidney or lima beans...he'd take them out of his dish and put them on the floor...go figure! Annie
