My cat, Rat, eats all the time. We feed her and she wants more. When we feed the other cats, she tries to take their food away from them. Every time she hears the can opener, she comes running - no matter where she's at. She's always begging for food. And yes, she is fat. We actually call her Fat T Rat T sometimes. Only now I'm concerned that she may be getting too fat. She doesn't get much exercise, because she loves to stay in the house a lot. Something else she does seems to boggle my mind. I can fix myself something to eat and take it into the living room - quietly. I'll peek at her, she will be sound asleep - sometimes feet in the air - in another room entirely. I go to the couch - making sure not to make one sound, sit down, and start to take my first bite. I look up and there she is sitting in the floor in front of me with begging eyes wanting me share my food. How in the world does she do that?! It actually amazes me! She does it all the time. I won't make one sound, but she knows when I'm eating. Anyway, I would like to know how I can make her slow down a little and stop eating quite that much. Any suggestions?
