Patti, @Catzzzmeow , Cleopatra starts asking for food about 2 hours before feeding time. Around the hour mark, she gets on Bob’s chest, not the lap, and makes him hold her and cuddle her. By 1/2 hour before time, she is so desperate that she is chasing us, yelling, trying to lead us to the food, and just in general, being a pain in the neck. She always gets fed at the same times every day, and she’s still overweight, so she is certainly being fed enough. But anyone would think she is being starved to DEATH every hour! They are so dramatic!
