Some good suggestions!  I am feeding mine Science Diet for sensitive
tummies mixed with two teaspoons of canned food to keep her interested.
 She inhales it!  Little miss Hoover.  I am feeding 9 other cats and three
dogs at the same time. One of the dogs gets sensitive tummy food along with
thyroid, pain and inflammation meds so I don't have time to pay enough
attention to her to try and slow her down.  I may start feeding her
separately.  Will see how it goes.  Thanks for the ideas. I can't give her
hairball medicine cause she immediately barfs it, often into her food
bowl!!  Subtle kitty that she is...........

For all that are interested, Miss Kitty is getting big, sleek and shiny.
 She is going to successfully sneak out the door someday.  She will not
give it up.  Hope to keep her in til spring.

Ozzie is doing MUCH better.  Fattened up in his head, chest and front
section of his body but back end just isn't gonna fill out.  Mingles with
the other cats if food is involved, purrs when petted in a manner and spot
he approves of and has learned to ask to go in/ out so all is well.  So far
no issues developing with ,the FIV.  Discovered he was choosing his own
toilet areas, none of them litter boxes cause he apparently requires there
be no top/lid on the boxes he is to use,.  Take the lid off and he uses it
every time.  One mystery solved.
