Hi, I am new on the forums, and a new cat owner as well. My boyfriend and I just adopted two brothers from a shelter, Mase and Dexter. They are both 6 months old and the sweetest little things. We are having a little problem with feeding though. The shelter they were at always kept food out for them to eat, but for 6 month old kittens, Dexter is 9 lbs and Mase is 9.5 lbs. I don't want them to always have access to food so they don't gain more weight than they should. So we feed them at 8 am and 4 pm a scoop and a half each of food (the scoop is 1/4 cup) like I read on another website. But as soon as dinner came, they ate so fast like they had been starving. So we started giving each a half scoop at noon hoping it would hold them over till dinner, but they still act like they are starving. I am scared I am not giving them enough because they still are developing kittens, or if they are just pulling our legs. If anyone could help out it would be greatly appreciated!!
