Re: Begging, stealing and fighting for food
Is it possible you're underfeeding him? How's his weight?
Callie was my food snitch...I came home one night with a McDonald's bag, rolled over at the top. While I was getting the cat food ready, she managed to get the bag open and steal a french fry! Anyway, A few things that helped with her:
~Make sure she had dinner before I sat down with mine.
~If my dinner was one of her favorites, she had to be put behind a closed door.
~If company was coming, she was automatically put away during dinner time.
~I would often build a barricade around my plate with iced tea jug, pickle jar, book I'm reading etc
If you've ever given in and given him something from your plate, you've reinforced the behavior.
