    Does he go out doors? My cats don't always eat the same amount each day as depends on the amount of exercise and also some of mine willl find food elsewhere. My Bebe used to go back to the shop that fed her raw meat for extra meals when I first took her in.

    Fed her last week and she threw it all up as somehow managed to swallow a cooked bone from a chickens rib cage which was bigger than my index finger.

    I think most cats are a bit hit and miss but I imagine that, if Butchers is all you feed, he'll get bored sometimes. Butchers is not a bad food at all but it does have a lot of jelly and to be fully satisfied he will need to get a lot down him. In any case, a rotation of different foods is always a good idea.

    The problem is that Butchers is really good value for money so just about anything you add to your rotation will take your daily feed cost up. Amongst the best value alternativs are Bozita, Natural Instinct and Nurriment. ( the latter two are raw so you will need a bit of freezer space).
