Should You Leave Your Cat’s Food Out All Day?

Some vets will say that if you leave the food out, your cat will become obese and could develop diabetes. I have a different take on this issue. yes, it’s true that if your cat is indoors and eats too much, it could get obese. I feed my cats twice per day. I leave their food out but I limit the amount of food left out. Generally, I leave them about one cup of food. I also buy food for indoor cats which has less calories. I believe that cats are “nibblers.” They eat very small amounts at a time. This is the reason that I think it’s better to leave their food out so they could eat several times per day. Taking it away just like you would do for a dog just doesn’t make sense to me. So this time, I disagree with most of the vets.

Remember, your pets count!
