After I feed my cat I give the can to my dog. She licks it clean. Wife says it's gross and hates to find empty cat food cans around.

My reasons:
1) dog thinks it's a treat
2) can is clean and does not smell in garbage.
3) no water wasted rinsing cat food can.

Wife thinks my arguments are weak (she is a lawyer), but it's all I have come up with.

So gross or reasonable?

Only a married guy or living with can vote. No single guys with a 20 case oil stash need vote.

Gross but my dog eats much grosser things belonging to cats so I say it's ok. Canned cat food is just nasty.

I guess the small amount of liquid left over is ok, but cat food is high in fat which is not good for dogs. I adopted an older dog 5 years ago that weighed 38 pounds but was supposed to weigh 25 pounds. The weight gain was from the previous owner not being able to afford dog food so they fed him cat food. He also had allergies to the cat food.
The size of your dog would make a difference along with how many cans your dog licks a day(wonder if that sentence is going to be censored?!)

Feed the cat to the dog. Problem solved.

I'd worry about him cutting his tongue on the sharp can.

The small dog that gets the cans is 60lb. These are pull top cans so no super sharp edge. I tell her she is licking the cans at her own risk.

That makes no sense. Cat food costs more than dog food.

That's nothing. Our last dog would eat the cat litter. Always fun when she would come up from the basement with litter in her whiskers and poop on the breath. Ended up blocking off the cat litter to fix that issue.

Don't see a thing wrong with it. My last dog loved to eat cat poop. I'm sure the cat told him it was just a baby ruth bar.

This, as for the comment about the extra fat it's actually good for the dogs coat.

This. Doubled since your wife is a lawyer. You're doomed.
