You could try Forbid or Deter - the only way one of mine won't eat it is if we're out there and we watch her like a hawk - even then, she sometimes takes her chances (likes it fresh from the spigot, argh). Thx to her shenanigans and our diligence in picking it up ASAP, we have about the cleanest yard in our town

Thanks for posting those 2 names. My mind went blank trying to come up with those two!

had the same thing happen when max-cat threw up this morning..... hobbled over to get a paper towel and dave had beat me to it..... he was still tired from a fun-filled afternoon at the dog park yesterday, but as soon as he heard that unmistakeable kitty wretching sound, he was up in a flash......

Somehow the cat food and cat poop is a doggy delight! Oh, and out any worm on the street seems to be great food!

I had an old soup hound that was that way. I kept wondering why the litter box was so empty, figuring the cat opted for outdoor potty-breaks.

Boy was I wrong when I saw him raid the box. It was a little unsettling at first but then I was like- "Hey- one less chore for me!"

Had a Rott once that would only eat the poops if they were frozen...true fudgecicles I guess. He never would eat them any other time. WEIRD !!!

That's how I feel when they eat their own vomit.

True. It was truly disgusting to turn around from washing my little one's hands to see the dog sneaking a lovely surprise out of the potty chair. Where's the puking icon when you need it?
