Hi, my new cat's got a problem (which I now have!) and that is that he goes totally bonkers at feeding time, on his hind legs, hardly letting me put down the food, then finishing it off instantly (vs a lot slower for other two cats), then goes headfirst into the other cats' bowls (not right beside his at all) and so I've been having to get him into the next room to let the others finish their food. He spends half of his time otherwise hunting for food all day long and is 'in' the fridge every single time I open it! He's certainly getting plenty (more than the others no question), and does not have any other thyroid (or diabetes) symptoms at all. He's going on 7 mos., spent the 5-6 mos. before I got him in a cage with 1-2 bros. and ?? Mom - with no real time outside of it. He's a total love otherwise, and is good about the box, etc., but the food thing is just awful - as if he maybe didn't get to eat first (or well) in the no-kill shelter cage. He's neutered, but crazy manic when it comes to the food thing. He wasn't overly skinny when I got him, just all around smallish and slim. He may have put on a little since then, but not a huge amount... just looks normal now. Any ideas? The vet also thinks it's behavioural. I'm so tired of playing food cop!
