We would teach Tiger to sit on the bar stool and eat at the counter. I think it is adorable. It worked for quite a while, until I came home from work the other day and found this...
Tiger & Cupcake
When we first adopted Cupcake she would plow Tiger out of the way and eat his food! She was little, but had no problem getting in between him and his food. It didn't seem to bother him to much, he would just walk away. We were feeding Tiger special formula male cat food, and didn't want her to get any, so this was our solution:
Cupcake knows she is not to eat his food, so she swallows it whole as fast as she can! She is a total stinker who gets into everything!! Good thing she is so cute:)
