    It is certainly an interesting discussion. Personally, I haven't experienced any difference in behaviour from when they are fed and not fed. However, they do seem to all have an uncanny sense of time when it starts to get close to their normal dinner time!!!!

    You know when your bully is being sweet. You get a few soft licks.
    When he's just working his way all the way down your arm, or the entire length of your leg - thats sodium craving.
    Interesting @Vicaroo1000
    Except he's not licking skin. Carpet - near where he's laying. Leather couch - near where he's laying. I disagree with the behavior and eventually, he'll stop. It's that "eventually" that gets me. He must be getting something out of this behavior or he would readily stop or even be easily distracted with a toy; neither are true.

    If you notice he is happier and are able to split the meals over the day I would totally do it. I don't notice much of a difference in Loki before or after he eats but not all of the bullies are the same
