As they get older

Yodel's hind legs are not as strong as they were in his youth. (Well, neither are mine...)

We have always fed cats on top of a big tool chest. It keeps them from menacing dogs and taking dog food. (Both Hazel and Sabir have had that problem.)

But lately Yodel has had trouble leaping to his food dish. So today we moved furniture some to give Yodel a nice padded arm chair.by the tool chest to accend by stages. He can use his claws to help if he needs to.

As best we know, Yodel is 13. Not far into old age, but definitely into needing extra help.

My dad feeds his cat high up too, on the window ledge. With his animals it's the other way round though, it's to stop the dog eating the cat food. Or rather to stop the dog getting claws to the face when he tries to eat the cat's food!

Animals can be so individual when it comes to food. Our dogs (Tanya and Tiffany) were completely different. Tiffany was a regular glutton while Tanya cautiously ate. He-Lo the bird was also crazy about food while Stormie is usually relaxed about eating.
