Stop looking at me. It isn’t time yet.

You have fresh water. You have dry food. You are not being cute.

He gets revolution which I think covers all the worms, doesn’t it?

Does he get excited every time you walk even in the direction of the food? Which in my house is pretty easy to do.

And then tear apart cardboard instead.

If my husband were there he'd give him a little snack 'just to keep him going until dinner time'.


It's like he's never heard of learned behaviours.

And mine, well; DD1’s. She yells at me to let her into DD1’s room, and then when her mummy won’t get up and feed her, she comes back out and yells at me to feed her. If I won’t, she starts yelling at DD1’s door again.

Yes. One thing I didn’t realise about getting a cat was that I was adding to the group of people in this house who think that I am the only capable one.

My cats do this when the weather starts getting colder. They eat a lot more in winter and are very vocal about getting it! 5pm cat dinner here and one has been hassling me for it since about 2.30!!! I gave in at 4pm...

Poor kitty.

He keeps winking at me. “You’re the one I love, feed me, please”.

:rofl:

The cats are the only 'children' in this house who are aware of DH's ability to feed them.

The same here! One cat does the afternoon shift the other does the morning shift! And its always me they come to - doesn't matter there are 4 other people in the house!

The eldest cat also likes me to walk him to his bowl - I call him his royal highness!

So, 5 pm came and I got Ds to do it. Lucky cat, chicken hearts and livers. Now he’s sitting on his pillow guarding the door.

ETA, he has worked out I’m not a morning person and bothers Ds or dh. Plus we have to keep our bedroom doors shut for sleeping. He thinks there are animals in the Doonas.

Yes bedroom doors shut but I swear the youngest cat tries to open the door!

Have we the same cat? Except this one insists on midnight snacks, a 3am snack and a 4-5am snack. So then his royal highness can depart back to bed and sleep the rest of the day.

Our cat has been campaigning for an earlier dinner now it's cold. Apparently she needs extra food to help grow her winter coat or something!

Our cats always have food in their bowls. Is that bad? They are all slim cats despite open access and one of them being a big guts.

I don’t think so. My vet says it’s fine. He had food, but he gets the can at night. In the morning, we top up dry if necessary.

Depends on the cats I think. The ones we've got now down it in two seconds. One in particular is a guts and huge, not fat, just a big cat (Siberian).
When I had my birman, she could self regulate. She would only eat when she needed to. Until she got kidney disease and then she snacked alot. Liked to eat at midnight while a fed babies. I still wake up at midnight to feed her lol!

We have the same, and its a tragedy if they can see even the tiniest bit of the bottom of the bowl!

Our cat gets fed morning and night but would still love a top up every time you walk past the bowl. Plus she prefers 'fresh' dry food, not the stuff that's been sitting in her bowl :rolleyes:
