Feeding time in a multi cat household

Tuesday, November 15, 2011
posted by Jim Murphy

We know that cats are territorial by nature and will develop a top cat, bottom cat structure. In my home, my older cat Mollie is the top cat and my younger cat, Millie is the bottom cat. This is hard on the more timid ones like Millie. Without sufficient space and privacy, they could become stressed out. There is one way that you could reduce the stress in your multi-cat household. You should give each cat it’s own food dish and water bowl.. If different bowls don’t work for you, you could feed your cats on wide trays or baking sheets. You could set up separate feeding stations or even feed problem cats in separate rooms.  All of these strategies will make for a more peaceful household. It will also give some more room for timid cats like my Millie.

Remember, your pets count!
