I don't think you will be able to stop it unless you take away Honey's food as soon as she is done eating or keep Honey's food locked in a room.

Ah Roxy. Still pushing boundaries. Testing her limits. What a gal!!
What exactly is the reason you do not want Roxy eating Honey's food? Is it because it's Honey's? Or is it the type of food?

It is because they eat different kinds,roxy eats wellness and honey eats,well befor everyone flips out let me save u from doing that,my mom has always fed her cats this stuff and they have lived long healthy lives and mom is not gonna change brands does not have the money to do that,it is purina..Roxy eats wellness.Cant put away honeys food mom free feeds her and i wouldnt ask her to do that it is her house and honeys..So if i cant stop it,i guess question is is it really even that big of a deal.

No flip out here mf. I completely understand not being able to feed your kitties the best that is available. Sometimes your budget just does not allow for it. Your mom feeds the other ones outside too. I give her props for that.
How about moving Honey's food into her safe zone? Your mom's bedroom? Is that doable? If Roxy is not allowed into the room then it is the only viable thing you can do.

Well that was honeys safe zone,last night i see rox go in there and never come out so i go in and now honey is sitting on the floor and rox is in her bed looking at her,used to be the other way around..And no we dont want honey in her room with door shut,no more cats locked in rooms for us.And im sure she is eating some when we arent here to,so i think it is just gonna be something that she is gonna do..Couldnt believe she was in honeys bed last night i about died,she has just taken over....
