|Cats are so different in their approach to food. Some can be trusted with eating from a constantly available supply without gaining a pound. Others will start bothering you as soon as they’ve wolfed down their portion for the day and not stop til the following feeding time. There are some ways to help your hungry kitty feel fuller and give your ears a break: 1) try wet food – more protein will keep your cat fuller longer, 2) feed the same amount but divide it into three or four portions, 3) do provide a few strategic protein snacks throughout the day. If your cat can’t be assuaged, check with the vet.
