If cats had learned to publish on the internet, this would be the first article. Followed by the environmental benefits of filling your home with boxes and crinkly paper, and dogs need to live in the back yard for their health.

I avoid all that "demanding food" thing by always having food out.

There is *always* a bowl of kibble and a bowl of fresh water available to our three cats at all times.

Occasionally, they get gushy food, one can split three ways, but it is completely random, like if they were predators on the prairie. They never know when they are going to get it, so they never ask for it.

Sometimes, they get a "treat" like Churu fish paste, again, completely randomly so they don't pester us when we go near the cabinet where it is stored.

All three are now a healthy weight (my older girl has lost nearly three pounds so she is perfect) and have zero food issues.

They still throw up randomly, but they've been checked and are fine and...are cats.

Sure, some days are just a bunch of tiny snacks to tide you over to the next meal, but sometimes? There are days when you get that jackpot food drop, the wild turkey that dropped dead of a heart attack, the young deer flung by a passing car. Man, cache that under some leafy branches and you'll be eating for days.


I need to figure out what I'm doing later with half a plate of leftover sausage and the expired condiments in the fridge.

Ditto. If one of the several bowls is out (each cat has their favorite), they will sit by it, and look at us... or they deposit toys (I call it toys for food.)

We have an OCD cat, and when she gets mega chonky (stress eating is her friend), we start with the half and half (hairball and diet) food. She calms down, slims down, and we are fine again.
