I feed all 4 of my cats a commercial raw mix. Each box comes with 6lbs or 24 1/4lb packets.

According to their raw food calculator I’ve done the math based on an active adult and I’m over feeding my cats by 300%?

Raw food calculator

My cats I THINK are the perfect weight although, Volko weighs 13.5lbs, I think he may be on the glutinous end and slightly chunky (super active though)

These were my calulations based on the calculator:

Volko requires .17lb equal to 77.1g daily

Other 3 cats require .14lb each equal to 63.5g x 3 cats = 190.5g daily

All cats require 267.6g per day or .59lb

1 packet is equal to 113.40g x 3 packets = 340.2g/meal fed currently x 2 meals/day = 680.4g 1.5lb/day

That means I’m over feeding by a little less than 1lb a day….

Do I take this with a grain of salt?

Yes, it seems you're overfeeding your cats by nearly a pound daily. Adjusting their portions could help maintain a healthy weight. Additionally, using a cat age calculator can be useful to ensure you're meeting their nutritional needs based on age.
