For those feeding canned only how much do your cats eat? My oldest eats 5.5-6 ounces and is 12.8 pounds and sedentary. My girl who turned a year old today is having an awful time with dry food lately so we are trying all canned. She is 11.6 pounds, slender and very active (maine coon). She is not thrilled with eating only canned but her tummy settled down immediately. She is only consuming about 5 ounces a day so far. I think for her breed and level of activity she should be eating more than this. We have only been doing all canned for 4 days now so I am hoping she will eat more once she gets over her dry food addiction. She keeps looking for her dry food. I think part of it is I am only doing chicken canned right now and she's bored with it. I want to give it some time before I add additional proteins because she has food allergies and it will have to be done 1 at a time. She was eating 2/3 -3/4 cup of dry with no canned before this while I tried to find one that agreed with her touchy stomach and didn't cause any skin reactions.
