    Is there a place Jackson can get to that Sally can't reach at all?

    I might set up something that involves a couple of small jumps to get to, which the cat can manage, but Sally can't. Fun and games

    yep, I have done the jumps thing with an aging cat. I feed mine inside on the pool table and have a chair he can jump to then up to there. Dry cat food is free for all outside. I don't find that the pups eat that instead of their own but do get into it sometimes.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Gotta come up with a better scenario than what you're doing re the cat food Vanessa. besides, it'd be a pain picking it up and remembering to put it back all the time.

    Isn't there anywhere within your home or property that the cat can feed where the puppy doesn't have access to?

    Regarding the vomiting, Grey's given great advice. The vegemite/promite sandwich hasn't helped though. Can you tell your kids they MUST NOT feed her. If she has a stomach upset or starts to develop diahhorrea then a trip to the vet can get VERY expensive.

    if you have any narural yoghurt around, try giving her a few spoons of that. If she won't take it, simply syringe it down her throat. It certainly will help to soothe the stomach and digestive tract.

    It's good to remember that dog's stomachs are far more efficient than human's. So when they eat something that's not agreeable with them, they tend to vomit faster than a human would. If pup's being a bit more sprightly now I wouldn't be too worried. Just keep an eye on things and make sure there's plenty of water available. I've had dogs that have gotten to the cat food and it always makes them throw up, then they're good as gold. Silly things, you'd think they'd learn!!
