The one that addopted me is eating less now and she doesnt botter me cos she ever asked for food by turning over the plastic glass I keep daily food on.
Always believed she was permanently hungry for had been living by her own like yours.
But now she had kittens and two of them are still with me ( one will be mine,I cant resist ) and those never faced feed privation,they were born and live home.
Those meow for feed quite LOUD everytime they see me - I'm beeing forced to not return to the routine I had for the mother ( food twice a day) that was interrupted by the delivery/nursing time.
Dont feel like giving them breakfast and keep mother just watching :-(
