What do you feed your cat, and how much?

Hi Guys,

Need some advice, do you guys control how much your cat eats? Also what do would you recommend I give my cats?

I've been giving them whiskas dry food, and friskies wet food.. should I control how much my cat eats?

I have a 1yr 1/2 male, and 4yr 1/2 female cat..

Appreciate your feedback :]

I've just been looking online and found out that whiskas is not something you should feed your cats =/ I honestly had no idea.. I've always thought whiskas was a good brand.. I guess the flashy packaging makes it look good..

Anyone know what I should feed my cat?

Yamcha, good for you for doing research and being open to others opinions. I have only had cats since the fall (love them ) but through research for my dogs and advice from members here I chose a diet of only wet grain free food. Right now they eat a combination of Evo, Wellness, and Instinct.

Ziggy will eat anything (including the dog's food ) and Zuzu is a little more picky. What she doesn't like (usually beef or chicken) she just walks away from but when she likes it she devours it like the rest.

With four furry companions, there is no free feeding in this house. They all eat morning and night. I can usually get three servings from a small can and about 6 or 7 from the big cans. We are trying to feed Ziggy less but he is always ravenous

Good luck with your search and keep poking around the food forum here...there is a wealth of information for you to absorb

(btw, pictures are mandatory, even though it is not written in the rules anywhere )

Whiskas is the macdonalds of the cat food world. Speciality stories, like Petsmart, pet valu, etc..sell good quality food brands.

I feed my cat Wellness, both dry and wet.

Ideally, drop the dry all together and feed the best quality canned food you can.
A great site to check out is www.catinfo.org
You could also consider the ultimate in cat food - raw.

We can stick our heads in the sand for only so long before it starts choking us. Face it folks. The pet population is bad ALL OVER THE WORLD!

I free feed my cat Royal Canin dry kibble for indoor cats (with furball control). Yes, I know most of you recommend the wet stuff, but my cat's a rescue from the humane society. There's no way he'd let me near his mouth with a toothbrush! So kibble and Greenies denta treats it is to keep the tartar off his teeth. Judging by his coat, eyes and activity level, doesn't seem to be doing him any harm.
If you're green, you're growing...if you're ripe, you're rotting!

I try to greet the world like my pets do...boundless enthusiasm, intense curiosity and no concept of yesterday and tomorrow.
