One of my cats is going to eat himself into an early grave if I don't stop his eating behavior right now! "Harley" is approx. 2 years old, a neutered male, who was a feral up until last year when I rescued him and brought him home to my other 2 cats. My other two cats are normal weight. I leave dry food out all day for all cats - this is a Max Cat light formula I use. They each get a feeding of 3 oz of Fancy Feast moist food twice per day. Treats are only given occasionally. I play 1/2 hr per day with Harley to exercise him...heres the problem...he won't play unless there's dry food around and he has to break every 5 min. during playtime to munch on a snack of dry food!! I don't know where he picked up this strange habit (perhaps he's seen me on the computer eating potato chips) Anyway, he's getting pretty pudgy around the middle. Any ideas on why a cat may be turning into a compulsive eater and what I can do to get his weight down?
