Our 2 cats are currently fed the recommended amount of dry food and this is supplemented by wet food every night. We've been putting the dry food out in 2 batches, once about an hour after we get up, and the other at 10 pm. At 9:30 we give them their wet food and they only have until 10 to eat it. We were kinda hoping to start getting them to eat their dry food a little faster for when we get a dog so he doesn't steal their food (they're not allowed on counters or tables). However, they started doing this on their own! They're scarfing their dry food (we've raised their food bowls and will soon put golf balls in there to make sure they don't start vomiting again from eating too fast). The only problem is, as soon as they finish that, they start whining for MORE food! We never give in and give them more (though we will make them do tricks to get a treat occasionally). Is there something that would spur this? Should we be feeding them more? We're just going by the recommended amount on the bag and then supplementing with half-can of wet food for their 30 min.
