Wet cat food helps to keep your cat hydrated and well-nourished. On average an adult cat should eat between 5 to 8 oz of wet cat food per day.
However, cats will have different nutritional needs based on their life stage, weight, and activity levels.
A growing kitten needs plenty of calories to promote healthy growth and development. This means that on average a kitten will need to consume more calories than an adult cat.
A kitten should be fed at least 200 calories per 5 lbs of body weight. This is the recommended guideline to ensure that your kitty gets enough calories to support healthy growth.
When feeding your kitten wet cat food, check the labels for feeding guidelines. Always feed your kitty 3 or 4 times a day in small portions rather than one big meal.
Your vet can also provide you helpful tips on how much to feed your kitty depending on their health, weight, and specific age.
