Feeding cats five times a day, a healthy habit

7

There has been a research conducted by University of Illinois College of Agriculture, Consumer and Environmental Science that increasing the serving meals and adding more amount of water in animal feed makes them more active physically.
I have also seen my kitties becoming more active day by day, when they eat several meals a day rather than just 1 or 2 meals. I am very happy and satisfied with this change in routine, because I always wanted my animals to be active and spontaneous.
There have been suggestions that a bowl of kibble should be put around all day so whenever you cat feels hungry they can grab a piece from it, but this didn’t work for me. If the cats will be given a huge chunk of meal in the morning they will then squabble around all day demanding more food.

  1. We feed ours 2 times daily. We started them on raw food and took away the dry food. We give them a few kibble as treats but that is all. They have gotten down to a healthy weight and their coats shine and are soft.

    First the cat with the blue eyes is the same cat I have.i have always fed him smaller meals more frequently.and I agree Mikey eats all he is given not leaving any to waste and he is a very healthy active cat!

  5. I think I will stick with what my vet told me. We have 4 cats, one with weight issues. She came from a home with 11 cats they would just free feed. All 4 get dry food twice a day, morning and evening, a little less than a quarter cup. They finish is all. Then wet food at night, around 9 :00 and that is quarter can each. As a result, my overweight cat is now down to a healthy weight and the other 3 are maintaining their weight.
