We just moved into our new house and slept here for the first time last night. At our previous house there was a room (kids play room) in the house that Dakota was never allowed to go in since we first got him as a puppy so over time he just knew not to step foot in there and never did. In this house there really aren't any rooms, except maybe bedrooms, that I can keep him out of. This house is a raised ranch and we are keeping the pets upstairs until we get things put away and organized, so the downstairs is a little crazy right now. When we got the cat 8 months ago we just stuck all his stuff in the kids play room including his food because we knew Dakota would never go out there but now I don't know what to do. I have no idea where to leave the cats food because Dakota will for sure eat it when someone's not looking if we just leave it out somewhere. He loves any type of food that is on the floor or near it. Maybe it's because I'm exhausted but I can't figure out where I can put the cats food. I always leave out dry food for him in one bowl and then give him wet in the AM & PM in the other bowl. SO there is almost always dry food out and he doesn't always eat all the wet right away. Any ideas or suggestions are much appreciated! Also, at this point there's no where I can gate off and put his food. I was thinking a bedroom for now but he can be noisy with his stainless bowls. HELP!
