He is so ahead of schedule vet said today we can neuter him in 3 weeks.
I know I will not be spending $5 a day in soft food plus dry never had cat where I needed do that. Everyone that has seen him says wow he so huge so he is in good hands
I noticed you can free feed kitten dry but once you add in soft food alot will not stop, not even if you feed them ten cans a day. I got a ton of hits on kitten not knowing or having mechanism to feel full or stop eating just now but will also go 2 fully used cans a day to find middle ground in what you guys are saying plus dry nibbles of premium ultra still with each meal.
Sounds exactly like Dave was. He used to eat so much as a kitten he would be doing more than 3 huge poos a day and that was me still not leaving food out all the time.
I couldnt free feed him even the dry food as he just loved everything.
He was soooo mad for food that he learnt how to open up the fridge and would steel food out of there and get into the cupboards.
When it was our dinner time, we would have to lock him out of the dining room other wise he would force himself upon our food.
It calmed down slightly when he was about 18 months old. But we were used to giving him a weighed out measure of food every day and he did struggle with being overweight. The vet was surprised to see such a young cat with a weight problem, but it does happen.
