Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


New to much to feed?

My mommy is wanting to switch me to Innova EVO dry and wet food, but she is unsure how much she should give me. She can\'t \"free feed\" me dry food because I have, well, no self control. Also, she knows wet food is better for me, so I was wondering how much wet food AND dry food I should have per day. I currently weigh about 6.5 pounds. Also, mommy is aware that she will have to make the transition slowly. :)

    I'm about 8lbs and I get about 1/4 cup of dry, a 1/3 of a 5.5oz can of wet, and in the mornings I get about an ounce of a different wet food. I'm really active. I play fetch and chase ferrets for hours every day. Once the snow goes away I'll go out for walks on the leash almost every day. I guess I would read the feeding guide on the bag and use your best judgment from there.
