So, I've never had cats and haven't had any connection with them, but I married someone who has two. I don't work anymore, so I spend most of my time with them at home. I care for them; they're cute (if a touch wild...), but they've been CRAZY about eating since coming to a new nation. It's as if they're starving to death (which they aren't; they've gained weight and have both been examined by a veterinarian, so there aren't any problems). We serve them dinner no earlier than 7 p.m., and I stick to that schedule. They, on the other hand, want to be fed about 5 p.m. This is when their new irrational habit enters the picture. They've begun doing this thing where they get all worked up about wanting something. They both sit and gaze at me, often with a lot of meows and cries, and they throw up about wanting their food. We've determined it's connected to some type of nervous "I want food" or "give me food or I'll puke" thing because it only happens right before feeding time. Has anyone else have a similar experience? Is it possible that I am insane? Are our felines deranged?
