there should be a guide on the bag that will give you an idea of how much to feed. then you make adjustments depending on if the cat is losing or gaining weight at that amount. no one can say that a cat needs to eat X amount of food because it depends on the brand of food, such as supermarket food or super-premium because the higher the quality of food the less you have to feed...check the bag/box of food and go from there.

good luck

First off, I only feed my guys 1/2 wet food and 1/2 dry food...

Mine will eat about 1/2 a 6oz can each... Which is about 1, 6oz can a day IF I fed only wet food. Now, it depends on the kind of wet food...The can should have a reccommended amount on it (i.e. 1, 6oz can a day per 8lbs of weight), etc. But usually those recs. are for a fairly high energy cat. The better quality the food the less you feed (i.e. if you are feeding a grain free can like EVO or Wellness you'll feed less than say a can of friskies). I'd start with feeding 1/2 a can 2x a day or 1/3 a 6oz can 3x a day and see how much they eat. If they are leaving some, just take it up and feed less the next meal.
