When I prepare our own meals, I will start giving Crush some meat tid-bits to see how he likes them. I know our dog likes them, she's always waiting to see what falls from the cutting board! I know he doesn't like canned fish, but doesn't seem to mind the juice from the tins.
Mine get fed their largest meal at 5AM, then a small one at 5PM when we get home, then another small one at 8PM before we go to bed. They have gotten used to this schedule, in fact one kitty kindly reminds me that I'm late every weekend starting at about 5:15AM
