I try to stay on top of it, I do. Whenever I let the dogs roam around the house I make it a point to put the cat’s food on top of the counter. There are times when I forget though and I look down and see Percy’s bowl completely empty. Percy would never touch the dogs’ food. Yet, Kimo and Balthazar… they gobble it up like crazy. I don’t know why. Are dogs generally just that gluttonous?
So yep I Googled it: “Why do dogs like cat food?” So basically… according to Vetstreet.com, dogs are attracted to cat food because of the higher protein content. Apparently some dogs can handle cat food while others can’t. As for my dogs… well, I don’t know because I haven’t allowed them to eat much. Percy does pretty well at eating his food (a little too well, talk about gluttonous creatures!) so what the dogs manage to steal are small leftovers.
