How Much Dry Food Should You Feed Your Cat?

Many people just throw some dry food in a bowl and leave it out for their cat. Now since dry food will not spoil, it can stay out all day and since most cats are nibblers, it is an appropriate way to feed your cat. The question is how much food should you put out?  Since I have two cats, I use a couple of bowls and place about one handful (maybe a little more) in each bowl. I usually have to thrown some away the next day. Pet Advices.com addresses this question in detail. Here’s an excerpt from the article that I read.

How Much Dry Food Should I Feed my Cat Per Day?

  • Is it safe to free-feed your cat?
  • Is dry food good for the cat’s wellbeing?
  1. The average cat needs around 30 calories for each 450 g (1lb) of body-weight. A cup of dry cat food weighs between 120-130 g and contains between 300 to 500 calories relying upon the brand. Most brands nowadays offer Information with respect to the number of calories the food contains. A few makers likewise put a chart on their packaging now; clarifying the perfect measure of food depends on a cat’s age and weight.
  2. There’s nothing wrong with feeding dry food to your cat if your cat is healthy and you ensure she gets a lot of water. It’s especially important to pick a decent quality food with an elevated level of protein and no grain fillers. Search for a very much detailed dry food with a high protein content (in any event 30%), low fat (under 15 percent), and enriched with extra supplements.
  3. On the off chance that your cat experiences urinary plot issues, you should be especially cautious about the dry food you pick. Luckily, there are specially planned dry nourishments that are made to help a cat’s renal and urinary capacity.
  4. A few people pick dry food since they can free-feed their cats without worrying about food contamination. In contrast to wet food, dry food can be left out for quite a while without the danger that it will turn sour. Except if you have a sensitive cat who is slanted to pace meals, notwithstanding, this is a bad idea. Cats with limitless food access will in general indulge in excess eating and then beg for more food. Temporarily, this can prompt sickness and vomiting. In the more longer-term, free-feeding your cat can bring about sickness and obesity.

Remember always choose a high quality food it really does matter!
