Default Now Hammie is constantly hungry...?

WHEW!!....I was lost in space for awhile..couldn't get back on the site and being a bit of a drama queen, I was freaking out. lol (THANKS, Chaz!!)

Hammie never ate like a 'dog', meaning he'd eat slow...sometimes all of his dinner, somedays not much at all. I learned from here that was normal for his age as those hormones were kicking in. Now...obviously the first day after surgery, he ate little. WELL...LOOK OUT KITCHEN NOW!!!! He is constantly hungry, eats like there's no tomorrow, and no matter how much he has consumed...he's looking for more. I thought at first he was just very hungry from missing a day of food. Now, I'm curious. I'm so happy he is feeling so well, but do you think this is normal? The vet said you have to be careful after neutering that the animal gets lots of exercise or he'll get too heavy. I'm keeping him at the same food level, and he'll be back to his normal exercise level next week. Did his appetite suddenly increase due to the change in hormones?? I can say this because he isn't looking....lol.....but he is eating like a pig.

He is still pushing me around from behind with that darned E collar. no wonder he is hungry.........
