Hi & welcome,

Yes, I know this very well. My Domino used to vomit just because he ate a lot in a short period of time. He also was overweight & this lead him to his death. Because of his obesity, he suffered from arrythmia, a heart disease caused by the enlargement of one of his heart chambers.
I suggest you to put your overweight cats on a diet ASAP. Obesity is bad not only for cats & dogs but for humans as well.
Another illness caused by obesity is diabetes, awful!

Ah, the old Scarf and Barf. I recommend you stop free feeding and begin scheduled feeding times, and also keep track of how much each cat is getting.

If you would like to try that, and also help your over weight cats reduce, I will be happy to offer more information. I agree with Maya that your overweight are at risk for many diseases, not just diabetes and heart disease but Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease, (FLUTD) and liver disease.

Welcome to the forum!
