We were feeding Nanook 3 times a day, but we're now down to 2 because the little monster has gained SO much weight, he's 104.4 lbs now . He eats between 7-9 am and 7-9 pm, it's coordinated with his pill schedule every 12 hours. Thorin, on the other hand, eats whenever he feels like it. He is a senior also and will sometimes sleep until 11 or 12. He has never had a great appetite and has always been free fed because of that. It's impossible to "make" him eat at scheduled times. We have a baby gate to separate the upstairs from the main floor. His bowl is upstairs with food whenever he wants it. He just scratches on the gate to let us know
