Anyone ever have this problem? My cat Tigger goes through spurts with this. He hasn't done it in a while, but recently did. He gorges his food down and within the hour he's barfed it all up. He eats dry food. When we find the barf pile it's usually whole pieces of his food. Last night we found 3 barf piles. We've asked the vet before why he does this and they just shrug their shoulders. We feed him twice a day about 1/3 to half a cup each time. We've been told to feed him a whole cup each time, but he never ate that much. So we just cut it back a little each time to figure how much he really needed. We're going to try feeding him 3 times a day to see if that slows down his eating hoping he'll feel less starved each time. My husband and I have hectic schedules hence the twice a day feeding. Hopefully no one thinks we're being horrible to our cat or somethin'. Oh he's also on calorie control dry food. The vet feels he's a tad too fat for a tabby. He's about 19 lbs. He's been on the calorie control for about 3 months now and doesn't look any different to us.
