Okay...so heres the deal. Saturday I go to pick up my Boston Terrier puppy Moxy. Moxy will be confined to the kitchen when I can't watch her and I am going to have to move Luxy's (my cat ) food bowls to the living room so Moxy can't eat her food. This is all fine and dandy but where will the food bowls go when Moxy is house broken and will have full run of the house? We have a laudry room but it is very large and has a bathroom in it and we keep the door open. I'd put it up on the washing machine or some place high but Lux WON'T jump up on anything. I don't know why, she's just not a jumper I guess. Any suggestions?

She won't even jump up there if her food is up there? Sometimes kitties test you. When I used to hold a treat out for Mia to come and get, she'd just look at me as if she didnt want to move but she still wanted the treat. Eventually she learned that if she wanted it, she would have to come over. Maybe your kitty is the same way.

I have never had a dog with cats, so I am not sure what to do except to feed them in different places and then pick the food dishes up after feeding time. Is your kitty a free-feeder? You might need to make some adjustments to the feeding schedule -- I guess maybe it just comes with the responsibility of having more than one kind of animal. Maybe there's a better solution somewhere, but I'd just play it by ear and figure something out that is logical. There isn't really a way to keep dogs from eating cat food if it's out for them -- that I know of.
