Cats and dogs require different diets. Cats are pure carnivores. Typically cats eat nothing but meat. A Cat's diet is primarily of meat and meat products. Cat food is far higher in protein than dog food. Cat food is high in calories, and can cause digestive problems and lead to obesity in dogs. Cat food tastes better to dogs. Only feed your pet food that is formulated for their specific species. You can feed cat food to Ferrets because they are also pure carnivorous.
The protein makes it extra tasty to dogs and that is the reason the litter box is so appealing to a dog. If you feed the cat dog food only, it can cause a cat to go blind and it can develop feline dilated cardiomyopathy, which is a serious heart condition.
