Not sure if this will work for you or not. We used to have a cat that would bolt her food down and then of course throw it back up. Everyone else was content to graze or snack. What we did was to put a big rock in the feeder so she had to work for it. It gave her something to do and required a bit of concentration on her part so she started eating much slower and felt full earlier. The others thought it was a great game (how many pieces of food can I snag at one time?

We have 2 24/7 feeders here so there are no fights for food, although the second one is empty everyone is starving and then they get a bit testy with each other.

They also get a bit of canned food every afternoon but that is given out individually, the ones that need extra can have it at that time while I watch to make sure no one is stealing.
