I've been reading replies in this thread with interest and look forward to replying at some point. We're currently into week 2.5 of dog-sitting, and hence I've had lots of time to ponder my feelings on the matter and observe the dog in question!BillyB wrote:What's your take on feeding cats at the table, Delia?
Actually - its not necessarily about feeding them, it's about keeping your eye on them. Get distracted for a few seconds and there goes your chicken breast or steak!
BB, I'm not quite sure what you meant 'feeding cats at the table'. My original post was about feeding dogs from the table. I.e. a dog sitting by the table, and food being taken off a plate on the table and being given to it. So, are you talking about feeding cats cat food under the table while you eat off plates on top of it, or cats being on the table eating food from your plates?
p.s. You talk about cats taking food off your plate... er, you're kidding me I know almost nothing about cats, but I know that no cat would be allowed to even think of doing that in my household. I mean who is in charge here?
