I know my boy is a little overweight and I'm concerned about that, he's approx. 15-16 pounds and he's built short. I recently measured how much he's eating, which I haven't done before. Well, for his weight it's suggested he eat 1 cup to 1 3/4 cup of dry food daily. I measured approx. what he eats an average day and it's not even quite a half a cup. He does eat about 1/4 of canned food daily too. He's pretty sedentary, especially now that it's warmer but he does get a little exercise most days. I just feel bad that he's not really eating that much, no wonder he always acts so hungry now that I've been cutting back. I alternate with Royal Canin Slim and Natural Balance regular formula. I notice that the Royal Canin leaves him feeling even more hungry. Any suggestions on if I should feed him more, since that's barely what's suggested for him to be eating daily? Does anyone else have cats that just seem to have a slow metabolism? Any advice I would appreciate.
