Cats should be kept on a regular feeding schedule, with the same, healthy food at the same time daily. This information applies to adult cats only. We recommend you check with your vet if you have an under or overweight cat. It’s important that your cat get the right food, in the right amount and at the right time. Never allow a cat to go without eating over 10 hours.
