    Why, when I came home yesterday I magically had two collarless cats. I am sure they are conspiring against me. I found Sev's collar by the downstairs loo but Lily's is nowhere to be seen.

    Also on a serious note, as they get older is it normal for them to kind of regulate themselves to meal times? It seems they like a big breakfast when I get up and then they eat very little during the day and then about 7ish they like a big dinner?

    Cute pictures to remind me they are not rascals all the time.....

    Yes many adult cats will self regulate if being fed a species appropriate diet (wet or balanced raw). I would continue to feed 3 (wet or raw) meals a day though, just adjust the middle meal to a smaller portion, feeding the larger portions morning and evening.

    Saffy is becoming the same lovie! Fill up bowl quite a few times at breakfast and it gets licked clean, not much in the afternoon even though I’m here then munchies again in the evening through till bedtime.

    I think Lola would more or less eat all day if she could... (don't know where she get's that from :oops:)...

    .... however if she has too much in one go she tends to regurgitate...

    Yes they self regulate and also change their meal times with seasons (well in my house anyway!)

    We had a winter spate of 3am meals and going out.
