Prior to Mimsy's arrival in our home, we purchased several food and water dishes that would be his very own; they were strategically placed in the kitchen which is several rooms away from where we feed our furry cats. We assumed that this was the best approach and would lessen the likelihood of upsetting our normally uneventful mealtime. Everyone seemed to catch on quickly, and Mimsy would run to the kitchen to eat his food; he's given a dish of both soft and dry. However, lately, he has been going into the back room to eat the dry food out of the other cat's dishes. Despite picking him up and putting him back in the kitchen, he suddenly has an aversion for the wet food. Should I ignore this behavior and hope that the phase passes, or should I remove the other cat's food in an attempt to force him to eat from his own dish? I really do not want all of the cats dining together because I do not give my other cats wet food, and if I move all of their dishes together, they will certainly start eating Mimsy's food.
