Tips for maintaining the correct portions for your cat
It may seem challenging to maintain a healthy portion size for your cat, however there are a few of things you can be aware of to prevent overfeeding. Firstly, divide their ration into small, frequent meals.
If you feed your cat dry food, measure out each meal carefully using scales, and leave it available for them to come back to until the next meal. Second, If your cat eats all of their food before their next meal time, avoid simply topping up the bowl whenever it is empty. This can help to prevent overfeeding. Similarly, avoid feeding your cat any human food as even small amounts can represent a large percentage of their daily energy requirements.
If you give your cat treats, it's important to take those additional calories into account when calculating their daily rations. Treats should represent no more than 10% of your cat's daily food allowance. Using kibbles from your cat's portions as a treat means you can be conﬁdent that your cat is getting the right balance of nutrients while maintaining the correct number of calories.
