Re: Why does Toby act like he's always starving?
Chica's brother 3 months old, is just like that, and so is my mom's cat Lil'Fella. Fella has gotten so fat because my mom free-feeds. She refuses to stop, completely filling the bowl any time that a cat gives her "the look". My little sister is on constant patrol, always emptying the bowl and preventing Fella from gorging himself. When she catched him doing it, she takes him out to the back of the yard, drops him in the bunny cage, and he'll leap out and sprint all the way back to the house. Exercise!
He's actually stopped gorging himself when Lizzy is around, because he knows she'll make him stop and go running.
Keanu, meawhile, being just a kid, is allowed to eat his fill and it shows. Chica weighs 2.5 lbs while Keanu is nearly 4.5 lbs! They were born on the same day, and are about the same size/height. Chica is lanky and limber, very agile, while Keanu is a pot-bellied hunk! Very sturdy.
