Shorty has almost quit eating dog food. Not sure why; the only way he eats it is if we feed it to him. We thought he would eat it eventually by himself, but he can ignore it for days.
On another front, while Shorty and Missy are not exactly friends, they are putting up with each other more.
Shorty generally leaves her alone unless she gets near his food dish. Then he rushes at her. She doesn't let it bother her, but it bothers us. Missy puts up with him just fine.
It was a surprise, though, when she started sitting in the decorative bowl I keep on the coffee table. I don't mind; I like the bowl but I can't find a good use for it. This is as good as anything else!
