Jaffa has 250-300g wet food per day and Mosi has 150g wet food plus about 20g dry food. I give them 3 meals a day. I free fed Jaffa and his brother when he was a kitten but by the time he was about 7 months he would eat the entire days rations for both of them before I was out of the door in the morning, so that was the end of free feeding! I do think free feeding is good if you have cats that will control their eating, but meal times are useful when you have cats needing different foods. When I got Mosi, Jaffa was 8 years old so he was on adult food but Mosi was on kitten food for a while. Now, Jaffa has some senior food but Mosi always has adult food. I feed them both at scheduled mealtimes and watch over them to make sure they eat the right meal and don't switch places. As I feed mostly wet food I wouldn't want to leave that down for too long, and I dont want Jaffa to have any dry food.
