Domestic pets usually persist in begging for food, because the strategy works.  The problem here is likely the huMAN feline parents.   Cats are not supposed to constantly eat.    In the wilds, some of them will go days and weeks without eating.

Sigh.  Today's North Americans.  Cannot say no to their children, cannot say no to their pets.    My wife is like this with the cats, well now just one cat, the coyotes got the other two.  It takes a concerted lobbying campaign to get her to reduce food portions.  Love through overfeeding. 

Are there several water bowls out?  Is the water recycled and topped up often?

There is special canned wet food for cats that has 1.5% or 3% fibre content.   Might help in this case.  The fibre carries water and lubricates the intestines.   Expensive but daily portions can likely be effective with very small helpings.  Fill out the diet with less expensive dry food. 


We had an unrelated digestive system problem with our elderly rag doll Dossie.  Her stools were loose and she would howl when defecating.  The high-fibre canned wet cat food — available only at vet clinics — solved that problem.  An earlier experiment with hair-ball dry cat food lead to loose stools and a howling kittie.  It is apparently high in fibre too.    I do not pretend to understand why so do not ask. 

Thanks to our local vet I now have a better understanding of why cats cough up fur balls and why it is just a normal healthy activity:  why we should avoid anthropomorphizing our pets.

Cute. My youngest daughter had never seen a Maine Coon until she was in Hawaii, and now she wants one.

Ah, yes; I've seen that expression many times from a few different felines, especially the 14-year-old male we lost last year.

  Well it looks like everything is going to come out all right without having to resort to the surgical option.   We are both relieved.
