feeding multiple cats

I have two cats both girls one likes to eat all of her food while the other likes to graze. The problem i'm having is that the grazer isnt getting all of her food because the other one is stuffing herself from both dishes. What do I do???

i this can be difficult to manage I'm afraid.

Basically you have to impose trick meal times. have a routine where the cats eat. but once they have finished you will have to remove any remaining food.

Your cat who grazes will soon adjust to the regular meal times and eat her full meal. Your greedy cat will complain as her food intake will drop now that she does not have access to her friends food as well but this is no bad thing and she too will get used to it over time.

this will take a bit of effort on your part but really is the only way to ensure that both cats are getting the right amount of food.
