Does she eat 2- 3oz cans per day? Or 2 cans twice a day (4 cans total)? :Surprise:

My Giz eats the same - two 3 oz. cans and free feed kibble... They actually eat a lot as kittens because they are still growing. If she is that hungry, she will eat the kibble. :ThumbsUp:

I agree. Nudie eats 1.5-3oz. wet food twice a day and dry out at all times. Skinderella wants nothing to do with wet (weird:Dizzy:) and eats dry all day. Some days they eat more than others but if they always have some sort of food available they'll be fine. She's gaining weight right?

my cats don't eat wet at all. ive offered it, they don't like it. i put out 2 bowls of dry off per day. by the end of the day it's usually almost gone, but not completely gone.- that may not help very much... but thats what we eat. i free feed, they come and go as they wish.

What are you feeding them? Foods with alot of fillers will not keep a Sphynx appetite satisfied.

Niles is a little piglet! He now weighs 7 pounds 10 ounces and is 6.5 months old. He gets wet or raw in the morning, then have dry out all the time. He gets to eat some of what I eat and treats.

I'd imagine he eats about 1/2 to 1 cup of dry per day. His dry is now mostly Taste of the Wild with a little Natural Balance.

I been feeding her friskies but i just got her sience diet and see if that helps, what do u feed urs?

Yea, I'd defintley get them off of friskies (just my opinion). I don't know much about science diet but I know alot of people use it here. I feed my kitties blue buffalo indoor formula, My oldest kitty had gained alot of weight on the regular duck formula so I changed her to indoor since it contained less fat and she does tend to be less active sometimes.

Good luck with Science Diet, be sure to do the gradual change so you don't shock her system too bad.
