Only my child: Gray

Gray won't stop eating the cat food. Every time I can't find him, he's in the garage chowing down. I keep moving the cat dish, but he keeps climbing to get it.

Oy. And I think its what's giving him the runs...poor kid.

Must be something in the air. I just got a big lecture from the mom-in-law about how they issued warnings that animal food can be a risk for samonella so I shouldn't let Riley feed the cats. Evil pet food!

Well that's something to keep in mind...

I, uh, hear tell that I spent several weeks/months as a 2 year old living primarily on dry dog food, because I wouldn't stop eating it and didn't especially want anything else. It happens. :)

He likes Dog food too...but lately hes turned his snacking habits to the cat food.

Maybe put the cat dishes in something the cat can get into but Gray can't? (Inside a dog carrier?) Or up high enough that Gray can't reach them? (On top of the refrigerater?) I have to put my cat's dishes on top of the chest freezer, at the back edge, to keep the dogs away from them.

My cat is too old to jump that high...I need to find something higher that's still easy for her to get to.

But I have a feeling if I do that, Gray will just switch to snacking on the dog food.

I have a hard time imagining anything the boy couldn't get into. I'm pretty sure he'd be able to climb the refrigerator if he wanted to.

The only thing I can think of is covering the cat and dog food with something he hates. Like lemon juice or prureed prunes or diced onions. You'd probably have to keep it away from the animals until he's "trained" to avoid the pet bowls, though. Good luck!
