At the moment they're actually having 4 meals as supper has been put back (Jaffa has a vomiting problem if he goes too long without food and was struggling to last from supper til breakfast) but they still expect something at their old supper time so are currently having a small snack of dry at about 9pm then their proper supper at about 11pm. I intend to get rid of that and have supper at about 10-10.30 pm instead.
I've found myself going from 2 meals, to 3 and sometimes 4 - because of Leopold. He has a similar problem to Jaffa. Like I said, when he was on mainly dry food, he would vomit pretty often. With mainly wet now, he hardly ever vomits. BUT - I've noticed that not too long after he starts begging I see him licking his lips like he's nauseated. If I go ahead and let him eat a little, he doesn't vomit - AT ALL. If I make him wait, then when it's finally time to eat he will vomit later. It's become very predictable...but since I've catered to his 'needs' to avoid the vomiting, he's getting chunky!! I'm going to ask the vet.

The dry does move slower than the wet. My husband puts out 1/3 cup for each when he leaves for work and 7 hours later when I come home there's usually a few pieces of dry in each dish. Stan is such a dry food addict, I have to sprinkle 2-3 pieces of kibble on the wet food to get his nose in the bowl.
I know the feeling, Beandip is a dry food addict. He comes running at mealtimes...but I think he just likes the ritual. I put the canned food in front of him and he just looks at it. He'd probably eat the whole can if I hand fed him
. Usually if I offer him a bite on my finger he'll stay and eat a bit more on his own...but he just acts like he doesn't care for it. I've been trying some premade raw out on him and fortunatlely, he loves it! So that's progress for my dry food addict.
