Default Food/toy guarding and cats

How would you modify this with cats? Should I always sit by her while she eats, and if the cats come over I feed her the treats? If that is the case, how can I be sure she won't food guard the new treats? She does it with her toys too, should I take the same approach, sit there until cats approach? I am new to this food guarding behavior and need it to stop! She is fine with humans, just not with other dogs and cats. I think it has to do with her foster home she was in (several dogs and cats). Thanks!
