    It’s natural for a cat to stuff itself when it can. In the wild, it may be days between meals caught, so when food’s available, instinct says to gorge. And when not actively hunting, sleep to conserve energy for hunting.

    I’ve had five cats in a row who were given food constantly, and who could eat whatever they wanted whenever they wanted. Not a single one would “pig out”. They all ate moderately, and didn’t gain a pound. I know there are some cats who will become blimps if they’re given the chance, but not all of them wll – and, in my own experience, most won’t.

    During Career Day at the middle school, asked a vet about this. He said some cats just get fat. He said he had two, treated them the same, and one got fat and the other one didn’t and he didn’t know why…All cats are cool though….

    “All cats are cool though” – you bet they are.

    Did this once, without the note, when went out of town day before my mom got back from trip. When I called her the next night, she chewed me out for not leaving food for the cat when I said that I’d left HEAPING bowl, she paused, then commented that the cat was acting a bit ill.

    We have five cats and food in three separate places throughout the house


    Whenever we catch one getting low we fill it back up, they are never out of food


    Our Boys are big (14 and 16 pounds) but they aren’t fat, they keep in shape with their daily version of the Kitty Olympics

    Sadie-bug, our black and white domestic, is a nibbler. Dry food is always available but she will nibble periodically all day long. Never pigs out and she is slim. She’ll mooch chicken from us when available though. Loves cat-nip!

    maybe in the wild they eat like that but I have had many many cats and they never ate more than about a 1/4 cup or so of the food in the bowl and the bowl always had food in it. Now a dog will eat until they can’t move but a cat only eats a little bit at a time but will eat several times a day.

    I know a dog that ate tried to a whole 50 pound bag of dog food. Sad to say it was found dead beside the half eaten bag. I leave cat food out for my cats and they never over eat.
