JavaMoon: I free-feed my three cats and they remain a consistent weight. The trick is to make sure you get them good quality food. All of the cheaper food brands you can buy in the grocery store store/target/walmart are complete crap. I have yet to find a grocery store brand dry cat food where the main ingredient wasn't corn of some kind. Food that has more corn and carb fillers like that cause the cat to eat more to feel full.

Although more expensive, the better quality brand foods at pet stores are made with more protein so the cats need to eat much less to feel full.

Skip all the food at the discount stores and get your food from a pet store.

Nothing wrong with being a CCL, I like a lot of cats better than I like a lot of humans, myself.  I won't have cats until I own rather than rent my living space; my biggest worry would be having to move and being unable to find a space that would take my critters.  :-(

That's a really interesting observation about the quality of food.  I've long suspected something similar is going on with human diets in the U.S. as well.  Cheap food marketed at poor people is largely based on corn, especially the use of HFCS in lots of stuff.  I'll spare the rest of the rant as it's largely off-topic and kinda into tinfoil-hat territory.

geekbikerskum: I know a fair number of people who free-feed their cats and the cats don't become obese even given access to all the food they want.  What's the difference between a cat that knows when to stop eating and a cat like the one in TFA?  Most importantly, how do you know what kind your newly-adopted cat is?  Easier not to let it get to that size in the first place, after all.

Shouldn't this headline end with "just in time for Caturday"?

There's already a greenlit Caturday thread (greenlit on Thursday evening, goes live on Saturday morning), so that's probably why it doesn't say "Just in time for Caturday".

I hope Biscuit gets a new home soon.
