    hey, our cat is coming home with a full tummy every day (we do feed him ourselves )

    i think i know who is feeding him as she has done it with our other cats but its a problem with Joey as he is a bottomless pit and even if we feed him before going out he will still go eat more and come back stuffed. he has a collar on that says do not feed but i Want to see if a tag would stand out better.

    we tried keeping him in as he was an indoor cat till he was neutered but he drove us mental as he just wanted out. so its not fair on him keeping him locked up.

    so does anyone know of a really good eye catching tag that says do not feed (or words to that effect)

    i considering a food allergy tag, but he doesn't have any allergy's other than comatoesing himself by over eating lol. its just i realy dont want him getting fat.

    Do not get him a allergy tag. We put one on our tommy when the neighbour were feeding him. He went missing for a few days and we couldnt stop panicing that someone would find him and take him to the vets. We were so scared they would give him drugs or something for it.

    Have you tried just having a friendly word with your neighbour,explaining that you are concerned that he is starting to put on weight and as you are regulating his intake ,if she is feeding him a little bit extra could she please stop as you dont want him to have a weight problem in later life.Keep it friendly and hopefully she will stop.

    Medical Tag - medium

    This is what Paddy wears as he is diabetic, but I think the text can be edited on the front so you can just put DO NOT FEED...but I agree with Buffy about having a quiet word with neighbour to really make the point.

    I agree with what others have said about trying to ask politely. FIngers crossed for you that it will work.
