DanaRo, this is what I do to slow down my donkey's eating. I put a rock in his feeder so he has to eat around it and thus it takes longer for him to pick up the food pieces. I guess for a cat, maybe you could get some of those large shooter marbles (oops aging myself) if it's dry cat food, those big marbles would be too big for his mouth. Maybe a smaller or deeper dish, something that makes it harder or Kitty to get to the food, forcingit to slow down...That's all I can think of. Good luck
Thanks. One problem, though. I have tried putting something in her bowl. The problem is she knows how to take it out. I haven't found anything heavy enough and small enough, yet, though. I do have marbles, but none big enough for the bowl.
So far, she is indifferent to her new food but does eat it. When I gradually put more of the new food in her bowl with the old food, I'll see what her reaction is to it.
cats are so darn smart and can work those paws and scoop things out,..sorry...i dont have much advice except try different food. I have a male who will hurl on any food that is red...and it can stain the carpet...i changed and no more problem for me...but im interested in litter boxes that dont stink as much...im all for that...ill try a 20 pound bag and see how it works...,I bought canadea for my dogs...the one finicky one never did learn to eat it...some who dont care would eat any thing...so..i went back to what they all eat...its a trial and error. Here i free feed the cats in several feeders...then i give them a once daily treat of whiskas moist from a pouch...they go nuts...and chow like lil pigs...so.might try some sort of food modification...i know...hurling cats are a real bite...what we dont do for our loved ones...good luck
My cat had this same problem; eating too quickly and then throwing up. I purchased a Molecuball (a dog toy) from the pet store. It's a hollow ball with a hole in one end. I put my cat's food in it, and it dispenses food a few pieces at a time when the cat (or dog) rolls it around. It took my cat 10 minutes to figure out how to use it, and it has worked just great. I've been feeding him with this for 4 years now, and he hasn't thrown up since.
Like I said, the Molecuball is the brand I bought, but there are a lot of similar designs that would probably work just as well.
sometimes it helps to give them little bit of food at certin times like 3 meals a day but give them only so much thats the way i got my cats to stop eating so fast and now they eat normal and when they feel hungry but they dont over do it
I have two cats. One eats way to fast, the other doesn't get enough food and crys alot.(sorry for the t.m.i) We know it's puke and when he throws up he pulls backward and makes plenty of stains in the carpet. It's so annoying. We don't know what to do. I'd have to agree, HELP
Split the cat's food into four portions... and feed her one portion at a time at four separate times. Be sure to give her the same amount of food, just split it up into parts. This way, she gets the same amount of food, only slower. Also, talk to your vet to make sure there isn't some underlying problem that needs to be addressed. *Some illnesses can affect a cat's appetite. http://pureacaiflush.net/parallels-coupon-code-parallels-promo-code.html
I should have mentioned that alhough she was a rescue cat, I have had her for nine years! She has more or less always done this, and I'm sure she doesn't have worms. She doesn't woof down ALL the food in the dish, she just eats until she vomits and then wanders off for a few hours (leaving a nice surprise for me on the carpet) then she eats the rest, usually more sensibly, later. http://www.forexdice.com/vistaprint-coupons-vistaprint-com-promo-code-coupon-code/653343/
