Feeding cats five times a day, a healthy habit
I saw in a recent research conducted by Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine that it is essential to split meal in smaller parts for the whole day, in case of feeding cats, it is very important to take care about their intake. Giving a larger meal will be good from them if we look at nutritional aspects, but after a while they may feel hungry and demand for more food. It will not only increase their food consumption, but will also make them fat and lazy.
Whenever I tell my friends that I feed my cat five times a day, there comes a question of concern. People think it’s way too much to feed animals specially cats for that much time but medically it has been proven right.
Splitting food in smaller portions will not only prevent them from getting fat, it will also help them eat more of nutritional food, which otherwise they could consume in lesser amount. It will also enhance their metabolism and will improve their appetite. ( How to choose the best cat food )

When I used to feed my cat with larger meal, it made it hungry after a while and it start doing exasperating acts just to convey its dissatisfaction, but on the other hand if I break up its meal in smaller portions it feels less hungry and becomes more active.
