Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
About 10-11 months ago, my gf and I were walking along the road and found what became our current cat. After confirming the she wasn't owned nearby, we took her home, bathed her, and have been caring for her ever since (the vet reckons she's a little over a year old now, when we found her maybe 5 months). She's pretty friendly and only occasionally gets a bit too bitey/scratchy when playing.
But something we've noticed for a while now is how she seems to be constantly scrounging for food, even after eating. We've caught her on the kitchen counter/in the sink several times scrounging for scraps (there usually isn't any, but it smells like food), and last night she actually started eating a single, silicon muffin cup after we washed it (we used it for our packed lunches yesterday). And then, not a half hour later, I caught her in the sink scrounging again! Of course, when she's discovered she runs away and hides, but it's really worrying that she's always hungry. She's fed 3 times a day - each time is a spoonful of adult Science Diet and a half tin of wet food. Before bed, we give her a toy to play with that's got another spoonful of food in it (plus these Greenies treats we give her twice a day to help with cat breath). This past weekend, we tried giving her the day's allotment of dry food all at once in the morning so she could maybe graze throughout the day, but she just horked it all down as fast as she could. Surely we're giving her enough food, right? She weighed about 3.9kg (~8.6 lbs) the other week at the vet. And she's not pregnant, as we fixed her after we found her.
Is it something behavioral that just cannot be corrected?
