|Such good advice from the good cat people on this board I feed my cats 3 meals divided up a day, of canned food. Stephano, the youngest, gets a little more than the two grown ups. I give a 1/3 of a can in the morning to each, with water mixed in. The middle of the day they get a few spoonfuls of canned food....you could give a little dry food here if you need to, but wet is definitely better. Bedtime they get another 1/3 of a can of food with more water. I do give Stephano a little more than the other two at bedtime, because it makes him sleep better. My two boy cats get put up in a bedroom at bedtime, so they don't bug the crud out of everyoneone, and they have learned to sleep at bedtime.
I think a good solid routine with feeding is the best for cats. They like routine, they get used to things quickly. They know what to expect. I think a small amount of good dry is ok, my cats get a small amount of dry as a treat. I lure them in the room when I want to put them up sometimes with the dry food, I say "kitty treats" really loud,they come running. They get a few nibbles and think they have really gotten something. But for the most part they just get wet food. We have had troubles with Taffy before with UTI's, so no dry food meals for this guy, or now Stephano, my other male.
