Mine (two sisters from same litter) were getting overweight when I free fed, so I switched to feeding a portion throughout the day. That caused them to mob me every time I came through the door. My cousin recommended an automatic feeder and it's been wonderful since. It spots out a certain amount of kibble at set points throughout the day and now the cats don't bug me to be fed and I only have to refill the feeder maybe once a week. The one cat is now back to a good weight and the other is still a little overweight but she no longer has fat rolls when she sits down.That happened here too and the last time we had a cat that was mine was before DD2 hatched. That was 26 years ago, I don't think DW has touched a litter scoop since she got pregnant with DD1 nearly 29 years ago. She's on cat #3 now.
There are now 3 indoor cats, 1 per female family member. DW gives them some dry food early to keep them from being annoying. I feed them later and clean the inside box and the one on the porch. DD2 feeds them dinner and cleans the inside box (when she remembers). DD2 gets a pass since she's 600 miles away in Canada.
