    I adopted 2 kittens at the same time. One was skinny. I tried free feeding. The skinny one didn't gain any weight and the other cat turned into a round blimp.

    My blimpy cat has to have meals. He would be severely obese if left to his own devices.

    I use marbles on his food. They are the right size that he can't swallow them and they slow him down. Only they are a pain to wash and clean!

    My kitties have free choice. I do notice on the rare occasions that it runs out before I catch it (never more than half a day! XD I'm not cat-starver), my older kitty will gorge himself and then throw up.

    So, def try free choice or, if not an option because your cat is a piggy, a slow feeder thingie may be the way to go!

    Try spreading it out on half a dozen saucers and set them well apart.
