I got Harvey as a feral kitten when he was very young (5-6 weeks). He's turned into an outstanding little gentleman except for one quality. Whenever he and Luke are eating together he growls at him and bats him away. They have separate bowls and Luke is never trying to get to Harvey's food, just minding his own business. It isn't too bad with their dry food. Just greenies and now I've recently started adding some wet food to their diet, and that's the worst. If Harvey finishes his first he'll growl at Luke until he runs away and continue to finish Luke's for him. I've tried separating them when I feed their wet but Luke is insanely picky and will only eat in the kitchen in his usual spot. Also tried locking Luke up and feeding Harvey and then switching, but Luke quickly caught on and won't eat his when it's his turn. It's like Harvey has traumatized him. Otherwise they get along splendidly. I just feel so bad for Luke. What can I do to change Harvey's behavior? Anything? I (and Luke for that matter) would appreciate any advice anyone can give.
