In during the day, out at night! He starts going crazy if I keep him in to long! :p all my other cats where wild before we rescued them. My mom didn't want 5 cats running around the house so we keep them out but midnight always found a way in! So we gave up! ;p he is my only....none rescue. My first rescue was a girl, she wasn't exactly a rescue but whatever :) she had midnight so he got very used to the pampered life of inside!!! ;p I can tell you about my other rescues if you'd like but I don't want to bore u! :) people call me crazy cat lady!! Haha! :D

Just gotta stick to a strict feeding schedule. Find out how many calories are in your cat food and limit his calorie intake. On an episode of The Dog Whisperer he helps a dog lose weight by putting him and his portion of food in an enclosed area (like the bathroom) for 10 minutes or until he finishes the portion. If they don't finish it empty the bowl. Keep doing this at every feeding and eventually they won't need to be enclosed and they'll eat their entire portion instead of taking a bite and then coming back later to eat more (like my cat does). This allows you to be able to control their intake better.

"Being overweight has a drastic effect on your cat's health and happiness. If your cat needs to lose weight, restrict calories by 10 percent or less. It will also help if you feed your cat more mini-meals, rather than one or two big meals. You may also want to try reduced-calorie cat food, since it will enable you to feed your cat the same volume of food while still lowering calories. Cats should lose no more than half a pound per month."
