|So, I haven't been on Catster in a long time, but if I remember correctly, about the time I stopped visiting regularly, I had virtually stopped feeding dry and was introducing Sammy to raw.
Well, you might say we've fallen off the horse but I'm really ready to get back on again. Over the last while she's been eating basically just higher-quality dry, with an occasional can of wet food.
It shows, too. She's gained a lot of her weight back (she lost a lot when we went wet) and she has some, eh, gas.
Now, I know from past experiences that those issues will probably disappear once her diet is improved, and I have a different question on my mind right now. She is really overeating lately. She seems almost insatiable! She'll go through at least twice the amount of dry food in a day that she's supposed to, and if I don't feed her all she wants, my other family members will. Sammy can be very... persuasive. She's eating Wilderness, which I suppose is a good brand but I obviously have to stop her from eating so much. She's been to the vet recently (a few weeks ago) and checked out in perfect health other than her weight. Now, her weight isn't in the extremes, but I won't let it get that way.
I have a lot of other questions, but right now this is the most important. How do I keep her from eating so much?
