Hi Stewart and thanks for the comment. I have not personally tried a combined dog and cat feeding station. To be truthful, I never thought about them. I will do little research and if I end up getting one, I will be sure to add a small review here.
DIY pet feeding station out of an old dresser. Dogs on bottom, cats on top, plenty of storage. ....this is kind of awesome, we could do just the cats on top and all the pet equipment in the drawers with a slightly lower dresser so the cat food can't be reached by the baby.Keep the overall feeding station clean! This is often where people go wrong and why neighbors complain about people feeding cats. If there is food scattered everywhere, empty paper plates blowing around, empty Friskies cans scattered and dirty water bowls, this is not only going to be unhealthy for the cats, it will attract unnecessary attention to them as well. Trashy feeding stations are also more likely to attract various kinds of wildlife, like opossums, skunks and raccoons, which again are major causes for neighbors to complain. Keep a “clean-up” kit in your car that includes: Paper towels, disposable gloves, an extra jug of fresh water, wet wipes, doggie pick-up bags (you can use to clean up cat feces), an empty trash bag, dish soap, a flashlight and a small broom and dust pan.Dog houses may work, depending on your colony situation, but they aren’t always that great. If there is only one small entrance/exit – one cat might come in and startle another cat eating, which can be a recipe for a cat fight that will literally blow the roof off the house. Dog houses can make great feral cat shelters, but shelters are a little different from feeding stations. With feeding stations, you want to keep the station so that it’s relatively open and easily approachable by cats.Before investing in a whole specialized station though, be sure to check out other options. If the cat likes to roam around outside and the dog does not, then try keeping the cat’s food and water bowl right outside the car door (or someplace freely available and easily monitored). Alternatively, build a skunk and raccoon proof outdoor feeding station. Just be careful to bring the food in each night, as other animals love to eat whatever they can find. If the dog cannot jump as high as the cat, then try placing the cat’s food and water bowl somewhere high. A little problem solving can save both time and money.Owning a dog and a cat at the same time presents a whole slew of problems. While most problems are behavioral, some are simple, everyday problems. Perhaps the greatest everyday problem is separating dog food from cat food, and ensuring that the right animal gets the right food. Since dogs tend to be more territorial, however, cats should stay away from their food. Most dogs, on the other hand, would love to get their paws on some cat food. Pet owners stuck in this classic scenario should invest in a dog proof feeding station like the . There is also furniture sations like the ones you can find .For those set on purchasing a dog proof cat feeding station, be sure to do some local and online shopping. Call local stores to see what they have in stock, and compare prices. Also, look up models online for reviews and prices of additional models. Finally, try looking for a used dog proof cat feeding station, as even feeding stations in good condition can be purchased at only a fraction of the cost of one that is brand new.
