It's not terrible for him, but obviously it's not optimized for his species. This kind of thing is a problem if your cat is eating dog food, that is quite bad for them.

Oh btw, try switching the dogs brand of food and feeding the dog and the cat in different rooms.

No. The cat food is too rich for a dog. Liver problems along with kidney problems will develpoe.

Cats don't digest fats very well, so cat food has higher fat content. That's why your dog likes it. That's why your dog likes the litter box too.

If your dog doesn't have access to the cat food, he will eventually eat his food.

Try different brands of dog food to find one he likes better than what he has and move cat food. We have to keep my cats food on a table

No! the 2 animals require different diets to live, and cat food can cause illness in dogs. and vise versa.

Same problem here. We just put the cat food where Charlie can't reach it and presto!!!! Problem solved... Cats climb a little better than dogs and will get to their food.

The dog will eat what's available. I leave the bowl of cat food on a kitchen counter where the dogs can't get to it. Cat food really isn't so good for a dog.
