We have taken in a foster kitty. This kitty belonged to the parents of one of difficult child's friends. He was kept in the basement and didn't have consistent access to food or water. He is between 8 months and 1 year old and goes to be neutered today. He wasn't too thin when we got him, but then they knew for almost 3 weeks that we were taking him. He inhales his food. Literally. He doesn't chew. We've had to break his meals into even smaller portions so he doesn't gorge himself and vomit. He's also food aggressive. I've never seen this before in a cat unless it's with a special kind of treat. If we go near him when he is eating, he'll growl and his ears flatten. My intention is to adopt this kitty out to a suitable home after he's had time to heal from surgery and we've had a chance to get to really observe how he interacts with people and the other cats and dog (so we can get a good idea of what kind of home will be good for him). But, I can't adopt him out if he's going to be attacking people that go near his food. He is also horrible around people food. He has to be put into another room while anyone eats. We store the cat food in a tub with a lid that snaps shut, and he was on top of it digging at it and growling at me as I got him off it. I now have to store it in a closet. I know how to work with a dog with these issues, but have no idea how to address it with cats. I've searched online and found nothing relating to feline food aggression. Any ideas?
