Mine scarf their food in the morning sleep all day and eat again when I get home about 3 pm and maybe again later. They also have a constant supply of dry as no one but me feeds them usually and I'm sometimes out all day.

They are right little porkers though so prob eat all day.

I know Georgie really wouldnt be bothered and would graze all day.

Jerry on the other hand will eat until everything has gone .... Needless to say we cannot leave an endless supply out and ration them when we are not in otherwise we would have to roll Jerry around lol

I'm not really sure. I fill there food bowl in the morning and then I just barely cover the bottom before I go to bed since the food bowls usually empty around 6ish

I guessed 4

Mine are eager to get their breakfast, go back to have lunch, another meal in the late afternoon and before I go to bed they come running when they hear their dishes being filled again ...

When we had Fleabag we were told to put enough food down for her to graze on it all day as and when she wanted. WRONG! She kept gulping it all down and there was never any left. Then she was ill!

Mine eat until their bowl ia empty. They know that if they leave it then one of the others will have emptied the bowl by the time they return!

Think we'd all feel like that so you can't blame them
