If you are like most dog owners, you not only love dogs but all animals. If you love your pets you are going to try and create a harmonious environment for them to co-exist in. Of course this is easier said than done. If your dog is like mine then you will run into one big problem, he/she will want to eat anyone’s food but their own. I guess they suffer from the same things we do, the grass is always greener as they say. One of the biggest challenges for owners who have both types of animal will be that the dog will always be into the cat’s food. There are multiple ways to surmount this obstacle, either to make or purchase a dog proof cat feeder.
For those wanting to take the easy way out you can always purchase a dog proof cat feeder. Most of these are very aesthetically pleasing and some also have an area for your cat to lie in and seek some quiet time. The most important thing to remember is to check reviews, some of the dog proof cat feeders are wobbly and unstable, and this could be dangerous for your furry friend. The best advice is going to come from someone who has already been down the road so to speak.
