@Coastal Radiance Lighting: No you are not. I have several neighbors with cats & dogs and other vermin. One has 8 cats and 6 dogs and a bunch of ducks and chickens. Another has 7 dogs and 4 cats, 1 horse, 2 burros, 3 pigs including a guinea and two ribbon snakes. A friend of mine has several horsies, 5 doggies, 6 cats, a squirrel she is rehabbing, bunch of chickens (I get fresh eggs!), and a couple cockatiels that yak a lot. And to top it off, my brother is a cat man - he rehabs feral cats, gets them fixed after making friends (lots of patience there), then puts them back outside again. In the winter he renovates his garage (he lives in an apt complex) into a winter cat haven complete with climbing fun, warm beds, heaters, plenty of food and toys to play along with a radio. Seems they don't want to leave him after he releases them cause every day they hang out at his back patio waiting patiently for some din din and a scratch or two or brushing. So much for wild. He did fine homes for all the babies before mamas and papas were fixed. And the complex has plenty of dogs around and ducks and geese. :)

I'm not as concerned about a dedicated feeding station as I am about storage of pet supplies. One hundred year old houses didn't plan for this! I liked seeing the pull out cabinet with plastic containers for food. I've also considered having a carpenter build storage that looks like the old potato / flour bins. I'd like the storage to be convenient but look like it's been there forever!

Put the water and food bowl in a kick toe drawer. Takes up zero room and it can be closed when visitors arrive. EFM
