The boys went to the vet today to get micro chipped (Jordan keeps trying to run out the door, so I'd rather be safe than sorry). While we were there I had the vet weigh them because I was curious. Well Jordan (8 months) is now almost 10#, Levi (9 months) almost 11#. They have both put on 2 lbs in the last 2 months. I think Jordan is already a rather tall & long cat and he is solid muscle which is why he's already 10 Lbs. Levi, on the other hand, has a little bit of a pudgy belly. Right now they get 1/2 a cup in the morning before I leave & a little less than an 1/8 of a cup right before I go to bed. I am feeing them Royal Canin Indoor formula. The vet suggested 2 things, first to stop giving them the second feeding & feed them only once when I got home from work. I do the night time extra because otherwise they are waking me up to get food. Well the problem I have with that is, Jordan becomes destructive when left with out food. So I'm working on a solution to that problem. Then she also said maybe I should switch them to light food. Now if they were adult cats who were continuing to put on weight I would do it with out a question, but they are still growing so I don't really like the idea of that. How do others feel about it?
