Here's my problem, I also have a little Chihauhau If I leave my cats food in her bowl on the floor she will eat a little and then walk away and will come back in 10 minutes to eat more, well by that time its gone as the dog eats it! So, I now put her food on the kitchen table so that the dog cannot reach it. Problem is the cat will not climb onto the table for some reason, so I have to lift her up onto the table to eat. Why will she not climb? I've tried lifting her up on to the chair to show her the food and smell it but she wont even climb from the chair to the table! What can I do,any ideas?
