My kitten that I adopted on December 7th, is a bottomless pit. 5 minutes after I feed him, he is jumping on the counter, or knocking over the garbage can, looking for more food. He is a small cat, originally we thought he was about 3-4 months old, back in Dec when we took him in, but the vet said he was between 6-8 months, or as much as a year old, but his growth was likely stunted from being malnourished. He said his teeth were worn down, probably from being a stray and eating on his own whatever he could find. He is small, but 2 weeks ago, when he was neutered, he was 7.3 pounds, and has a round little belly. I feed him Wellness canned cat food three times a day, and sometimes throw a couple of extra spoonfulls of food at him when he is driving me batty. I know kittens eat more, but I had read that after 6 months that it was ok to go to 2 feedings a day, and he gets 3 and then some. I try to play more with him, bought him a huge armarkat cat tree, and he has his brother Taffy that he plays with, but it seems nothing gets his mind off of food. He has been checked twice for worms, no worms. Do you think it's just because he has been a starving little homeless kitty for so long that he it is still his survival instinct to keep hunting for food? He just never seems to get to that point where he is satisfied. He has a fat little belly, and I give him more than the other two older cats get, he probably gets 2 to 3 times more than they get. I feel like if I give him more he will explode! He has not grown much in size in the two months we have had him, so I know this is not just a growth spurt for him. He does calm down at bedtime, he sleeps in my daughter's room, and he sleeps well all night long but the nano second he hears my alarm go off in the morning, he is squaking for his food....which is really cute how he carries on. I just want to make sure I'm giving him enough?
