Maya is 2 1/2 years old and is about 12 lbs. We just adopted Sophie a month ago and she was 6 1/2 lbs when we took her to the vet for a check up. Sophie is about 11 months old.
We are feeding both of the Fancy Feast wet food. We feed Maya 1 1/2 3 oz. cans per day (1/2 in the morning and one full can at night) and we feed Sophie 1 can a day (1/2 each feeding). I realize that the cans recommend feeding in much greater amounts, but I think that would cause Maya to be severely overweight and Sophie to be overweight as well.
Maya looks a tad overweight for her body size and Sophie looks normal if not a tad underweight.
The problem is that they are both obsessed with food. Maya will be looking to be fed hours before it's time and then inhale it like it's going to disappear. She has been like this since we got her about 18 months ago. Sophie eats even faster than Maya and meows for food all the time and tries to eat whatever we are eating.
I have two questions:
(1) Is this because Fancy Feast is bad? Are there similarly priced wet foods that are better? Sometimes we feed Innova dry food when we are going to be away and Maya is similarly obsessed with that food.
(2) How much should we feed?
