Where Shall I Eat Today?

Most pet owners have a specific spot set up for their pets to eat, where their food and water dishes remain on a daily basis. This is typically in the kitchen area, as it is usually the easiest place in the house to clean up after messy pets. What I would like to know is how many pets actually stick to this arrangement? If you hand them food outside of this area, that’s a different story. But is Sadie the only one who does not like to stay in one place while eating?

The photo above is Sadie’s everyday set up for food and water. Notice by the carpet that this is in my living room, not the kitchen. I tried to keep her food and water in the kitchen for a while, but Sadie often dislikes the kitchen floor and would simply refuse to eat or drink if she had to walk on that floor to do so (click here to read the full post about Sadie’s Flooring Phobias). By moving the bowls into the living room I have a better chance of getting her to use them, but Sadie just can’t seem to stick to one place. If she’s in the mood for dry food, I often find a trail of kibble leading from the living room into my bedroom. Sadie takes mouthfuls of the food from her bowl in the living room and brings it to the bedroom, where she drops it on the floor and then chooses which pieces she will eat. Thankfully she does not do this with wet food. Instead, Sadie sometimes completely ignores her wet food when it’s in her bowl in the living room. But if I move the bowl into the bedroom with me, Sadie will suddenly decide to eat the food. And although she has a water bowl in the living room as it’s part of a set with the food bowl, Sadie usually won’t drink water from that bowl. Instead I need to keep a separate water bowl in my bedroom for her, where she happily drinks and stays hydrated. And if you give her a treat, you never know where it will end up. I think I’ll need a whole other blog post to talk about her burying and reburying treats all over the house. I’m just glad that I’ve gotten used to most of Sadie’s quirky eating habits and can anticipate what needs to be done to make sure she gets the proper nutrition every day.
