Feeding cats five times a day, a healthy habit

7

One of my cats who had seen bad days when she lived in a shelter, she had been in a wired relationship with food. This is the big reason for me to feed her every possible time, because she cannot bear an empty bowl.

She becomes uncontrollable in such circumstances. I have installed an automatic food dispenser for her convenience. She does some cute acts as well. She lies in front of the dispenser watching it, it seems like she is praying for some food, and the food dispenser has become her god.

Another thing which my cat loves about is the sound of an opening can of wet food. My cats love this food so much that sometimes I use it as a bribe when I have to go out of the house or want to sleep for some time.

  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.
