Cat Getting Fat Again
I posted a while ago, my female spayed tortoiseshell cat, six years old, seems to be hungry all the time. Her tummy is getting quite rounded, looks like she has put on perhaps a kilo. I don’t give her a lot to eat at a time, around a third of a pouch, Felix or Hi Life or Whiskas, sometimes with a few biscuits. She eats around 9.30 am, is hungry again around 1pm, then 3pm, and various times for the rest of the day and evening. I took her to the vet last time this happened, he took tests and couldn’t find anything wrong. I don’t like to see her always hungry and getting overweight. She is around 5-5.5 kg now. Is this normal for cats to always be hungry, is she trying it on, should I ignore her and feed her twice or three times a day? Thanks all.

Yes she has lots of outdoors space, is quite playful, tummy at the moment is always rounded. Always plenty of water to hand although l don’t see her drink any. I only give her small amounts of food at a time, although she gets through around 2 1/2 pouches a day, plus biscuits. I just think if I give her more she will get fatter, and before all this started, she didn’t eat a lot at all. I wouldn’t let her starve, I feel guilty and always give in when she asks for food.
