How often you feed you cat? Mine is 1 and 1/2 years old (she is female), and I feed her twice a day, around 150 grams per feed. She has no weight issues. What is your experience?

roofuss has food laid out for him 247 he is pretty hefty now, although he is built big already he weighs about 21 ibs the other day he tore into a new bag of food when he already had some out.i think he needs a diet, playtime is very healthy though, im scared if i cut down on his food he'll be hungry all the time

21 lbs really sounds like a lot of weight. Mine is around 8-9 lbs, but she's female, it's normal to weight less. I don't know if diet can help you.. I think he'll meow up your life if you try to cut his food :) A little more playtime is really a good though. And don't forget to show us some pictures.. I am curious to see him :)

We free feed ours, leave a couple of bowls of biscuits around the house and give them meat meals three times a day. Neither are overweight in fact the black is slightly underweight.
Cats are naturally grazers and shouldn't overeat. Unlike dogs who eat everything because they're naturally never sure where their next meals coming from, so they gorge.

i give rupert a pouch twice a day, he only licks the gravy and leaves the rest (that a stray finishes everyday when visiting my flat) but hes fond of cat biscuits so i leave some 24/7 for him to nibble.hes 12lbs(6kilos) which is a reasonable weight for a male cat of his age...[b]

I feed eight ferals, whose eating habits vary with the change of the seasons. Right now, during a cold March/April, they eat just under three quarters of a can of Friskies each, and one or two cups of dry food. As the weather warms up they eat less and less -- by mid-July two cans a day will be more than enough for the entire colony. In September and October they eat like it's going out of style in order to fatten up for the winter (Interestingly, home cats who were rescued from the streets also follow this pattern). Strangely, sometime in mid-Winter the ferals cut back on their eating, and eat only enough to maintain body heat. When it rains, or snows, the ferals won't come out to eat for days on end.
