The cats have cat food, and regular access to it, but they like to snack on the dog food, too. Whenever I pour dog food in Gwennie’s bowl, the cats gather round. (You can see two cats in the photo. There were two more lurking outside the frame.) And Gwennie always does what you see her doing above. Lays down near the bowl–and waits politely for the cats to finish. Then she eats.
