How Much Should You Feed Your Cat?
An average cat should be eating 2% – 3% of their body weight, whereas active cats can eat between 4% – 6% of their body weight. Kittens can eat up to 8% of their body weight, depending on breed. Unlike dogs, cats are self-regulating. Your cat will know when it is full! Give your cat its food, allow 15minutes to eat, and then refrigerate the rest until the next feeding. Adult cats can be fed twice a day and kittens may be fed 2 – 3 times a day (depending on the kitten.)
A 1 – 5 lbs. cat can be fed UP TO 1.6 oz. of raw food a day (1 tbsp. which is a little less than HALF of our quarter cuts.).
A 6 – 10 lbs. cat can be fed UP TO 3.2 oz. of raw food a day (2 tbsp. which is a little less than ONE of our quarter cuts.).
A 11 – 16 lbs. cat can be fed up to 4.8 oz. of raw food a day (3.5 tbsp. which is just over ONE of our quarter cuts.).
*ONE of our quarter cuts = 4oz. (approx.) You can buy our cat food in individual 4oz. packaging or in a 5lb bag of “quarter pound cuts”.
