We've talked about the dogs, but how good are your cats at not bothering you and yours when you eat?
Do you lock them away at mealtimes? Feed them before certain meals of yours?
Do they even want to check out your breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snacks?
I know how easily they will take a foot, if you give them an inch, so we don't let them begin. If there's something that we will actually give them, such as meat when prepping, yogurt, etc. we make sure not to feed it to them at the counter, the table, etc.
With Mamou and Uhura, since they are new to this house, and houses in general, I was careful to establish where they get food, and stick with it. To the point where they run to their spot/bowl when we go to feed them 'human' food.
How about cats that you have/have had?
