An adult cat's behavior, tendencies and needs vary based on its lifestyle, sensitivity and breed. During the adult stage of a cat's life, it is very important to be aware of the chance of weight gain, especially for indoor cats. The prevalence of excess body weight in cats has increased by 90 percent since 2007 (Source: Banfield State of Pet Health Report, 2012).
A cat that does not go outside uses little energy. Some cats even have a tendency to eat just to keep busy. Plus, indoor cats are typically spayed or neutered which often causes a reduction in hormone levels, which in turn causes a cat's appetite to increase and its activity level to decrease. For these reasons, it is essential to set the quantity of food to be served to your cat every day and to choose a cat food with a moderate energy density to help reduce the risk of excess weight gain.
