Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Bunny. I'm glad that you're aware of her eating situation and how she is gaining too much weight. Honestly, going to a scheduled feeding is what would be best. She is one of those cats that is grazing enough that caloric wise, she's going over what she needs in a given day. A cat that is overweight is one that has more health issues ranging from diabetes, to arthritis, to heart issues, etc... At this point, recognizing the issue and taking a proactive approach is going to be best. As far as how to go to the scheduled feeding? You could go right to it with her caloric requirements for the day divided into two feedings. If you want to take this amount and give 1/3 in the am, leave 1/3 out to graze on, and then give the last 1/3 in the pm - that may work best. She may be one that needs to be placed on a lower calorie food than she's on if she's feeling hungry despite the meal feeding.
