How do I keep neighborhood cats from pooping on my lawn?

gravylegmistake asked:

I live in a fairly typical suburban area with many cat owners. For some reason they crap on my front lawn (the cats not the cat owners!). I thought only dogs did this, as cats like to bury their turds in soft dirt or ground cover. And yeah, they are definitely cat turds. I have a dog and know the difference.

How do Cats and Dogs know which is cat food and which is dog food?

Aneleh asked:

I have 2 cats and three dogs. One night, I ran out of cat food (the dry type) and my cats were hungry. So since I had dog food only and the shops were closed, I gave them dog kibbles. They’re more or less of the same shape and size and are made of the same ingredients – chicken. My cats took a nibble and refused the rest of the bowl, preferring to go hungry than eat dog food. The next day, i got them a fresh pack of made-for-cats kibbles and they immediately dived in and ate up. How come my cats knew what I gave them wasn’t cat food?

I also know of dogs that won’t eat cat food for the long run (not mine though, cos they’re pigs and will eat anything).

It would be good if a pet food manufacturer can answer this question. Is there some special ingredient you put in cat and dog food that makes cats and dogs know which kibbles is who’s? Also, nowadays, dogs are eating fish too – like salmon. You can’t say it’s the ingredient. How come they know the difference?

How can I get my cats to get along with my dog?

Samantha asked:

I have 8 cats (each about a year and a half to two years old), and a Puggle named Jake that turned 2 years old today. We let my cats run around the house, and we keep Jake in his own room and let him in the backyard for an hour or two every day. We want to let my Jake run around the house, so we’re having a trainer come in and train him to not destroy the furniture and such. The trainer says she can train him to ignore the cats, but what about the cats?
Earlier today when we were letting Jake run around free, he got too close to my cat, Trevor. Trevor hissed at Jake and lashed out with his claws, cutting Jake’s ear open. We had to bring him to the vet and for the next 24 hours his ear will be bandaged.
Is there a way to avoid another injury like this without having to separate the cats from the dog?
