Today, my neighbor went on vacation, leaving me in charge of his cat and dog. For some reason, he calls his dog "Cat" and his cat "Dog". There are two pet food containers, one labeled "Cat" and the other labeled "Dog". I have no idea which one goes to which animal. FML

My cat always eats my dog's food (he's a German Shepherd). I mean it's possible that the animals could possibly just end up eating the food that they want rather than what they should have. You can smell the food though, they have different scents if you haven't noticed.

104: Actually... Dog food is even worse for cats then cat food is to dogs... Cats are completely carnivorous while dogs are more like omnivores. The cats stomach wasn't made to digest vegetables and eating dog food is really, really bad for them! Cat did on the other hand is supposed to contain mostly meat proteins which the dog can infact digest properly. As long as it doesn't eat to much it isn't to bad

118 is completely right. But adding to that, cats need taurine which is always added into cat food but not necessarily in dog food.

Considering most cats are more picky OP could test the cat only to see which it prefers. My cats would never touch dog food.

Or if one is bigger in kibble size, I'm sure that's the dog food and not the cat food.

Or just call the owner!?!?

Usually dogs like cat food better than their own (the higher fat content is tasty! mmm!)Put down both and see which one, erm, Cat goes to. Also, if it's a big dog, there should be a pretty obvious size difference in the kibble...

OP: "Hey, sorry to bother but I wanted to ask who gets what food."

Owner: "I've already told you, dog food is for cat and cat food is for dog. Just make sure cat eats cat food and dog eats dog food. Don't mess it up!"

Problem not solved...

Cat food is mostly smaller, but I guess it would depend on the dog, I figure Chihuahua food must be smaller bits than food for a german shepheard. Besides I heard loads of stories of dogs eating the cat's food. Cats are more picky. Hope this helps OP
