He could eat 24 hrs a day- we feed him wet food twice a day- 3/4 small can at each feeding then about a total of 3/4 to 1cup dry food throughout the day (If we put it out at once he eat it all!)- Vet thinks this is more than enough (he weighs quite a bit 14.6 pounds- over weight)- the other night he got across from my husband (the cat's fav person) and talked very meanly for off and on 30 minutes and didn't stop til I gave him a little dry food. What's up? He scares me!
So no worms or other parasites? How did you get Bootis? was he a rescue? I know any feral cat or a cat I have gotten from a shelter has that need to eat and eat fast, I think I wwas they thoought they better eat before it was stolen from them.

Ms. Macy- vet checked him for worms and other things ... my husband says the same thing he was out on his own for 2 yrs not knowing when he might eat next BUT it's been 2 yrs we've now had him- thought that feeling/thought would go away . It intrferes wqhen Tessa eats- she's a grazer- just eats a few dry morsels and then quits and comes back in awhile and munches more. So I have to pick up her dish everytime or he (Bootie) will eat it all.
i was a picky eater until a new cat joined the family then i ate everything in sight to keep her from eating it . after she left i continued to eat that way until my people quit leaving food out for me they even got the dog in on it after she caught me chewing her rawhide .
[ IT SOUNDS LIKE HE HAS YOU TRAINED TO OVER FEED HIM . TRY HIM JUST THE DRY AMOUNTS AND NO CAN FOOD UNTIL WEIGHT STARTS DROPPING . YOU WILL NEED AN IRON WILL AND EAR PLUGS . IT TOOK GRACIE TWO YEARS TO GET WEIGHT DOWN TO WHAT VET WANTED . IF THE CAT IS AN OUTDOOR CAT YOU WILL NEVER GET THE WEIGHT OFF.]
Sundance: I started a thread in the Rainbow Bridge forum if anyone wants to say a few words.

Toto_Lady_Max: Have some sad news. Toto went to the bridge today. He has been hurting worst. This morning he was in severe pain so the vet said it would be best to say goodbye to him. Mommy's heart is broken.
