Response to Bertha Venation (Original post)

1. I do not now feed grain-free to my kitty,

but I did at one point. He had so many problems, and the vet thought it could be food allergies. (It turned out not to be allergies, but I did the grain-free.) I did not notice any difference with his hunger level though. Once my kitty got his digestive system better, he started to gain weight quickly.

I now feed diet food to him, but I only have the one cat at this point. My suggestion, if you don't like the way all the kids are reacting to this food, is to feed whatever they all like, but no free-feeding. Watch the quantity that you give to your overweight kitty (I measure exactly now and I was shocked about how much more I gave than I was supposed to give). Put food down for a set length of time, then take it back up so chubby can't eat more. You might have to feed chubby kitty in a separate room until the food is all taken back up. All the cats will get used to eating this way, although it may not happen immediately and the pickers will be hungry until they get with the new program.
