My cat was a stray who I know was outside at least a month (eating who knows what) When I took her in she was 7 lbs (she's 1-2 yrs old). The vet said she is healthy, just small.
I've had her almost 5 months now and she's 9 1/2 lbs. Of course I was only feeding her Science Diet dry before I found this website.
She loves Wellness CORE and Wellness grain free wet food. So I've been giving her wet food twice a day and I'd say total she eats 1/2 to 3/4 of a can per day (5.5 oz can). I've been putting a little of the dry food in her dish each day- like less an 1/8 cup and she doesn't finish it.
The Wellness can says a 6-8 lb cat should eat 1 whole can a day- that seems like a lot. My cat likes Wellness she just seems to eat as much as she wants and walks away to go play. I would love to go 100% wet but I'm worried she isn't getting enough food.
How much wet does your cat eat in a day?
