    Hi all, how much your kitties eat on an average day?

    Stella is nearly 13 weeks and I'm just wondering if she's eating enough?

    This is what i currently give her:
    * 1/2 pouch wet food in the morning
    * 1/2 pouch early afternoon*
    * 1/2 pouch in the evening if she's ate the previous one.

    (She also has a constant supply of dry kitten food which she nibbles on through the day)

    Most days she never finishes what i put out for her and rarely gets her 3rd meal.*

    Is she just a fussy cat or is she eating enough? The box says I should be giving her twice the amount but I may as well just throw it straight in the bin :)

    Could you take the dry away and she will eat more wet. She is basically eating sweeties all day, like children then not eating her dinner :)

    Hmm yes I never thought of it like that :eek:

    We're at work all day so tbh I just didn't want her being hungry...

    Apart from the dry food, is she eating enough wet?

    My first vet told me to switch her to completely dry food but I've since changed and this new ones encourages a wet diet...I never realised it was so confusing/controversial!!
