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, www.catster.com 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.
We've been trying to figure out how much to feed 4lbs 4 month old Jixie. I bought the Wellness Core brand for Jixie yesterday and on the bag, it says 1/2 cup of dry core and a 3oz can of wet Wellness for her age. I was feeding her a little less than that before (about 1/3 cup dry food and split the 3oz) and there was feedback that said that was too little. Yesterday, I gave her a full 3oz in the am of Wellness AM and she ate that. I left about 1/3 dry for her which she ate almost all of it by the time I got home. When I gave her another full can she had a little bit and left it alone. I put a half back in the refridge and left the rest out. She didn't eat the rest. It was also chicken and I don't think that is her favorite. This morning I gave her a full 3oz can again, and she's eaten about half of that.. She'll probably graze on the rest later...
I just want to ensure I am giving her enough for a growing kitten but I don't want to train her to eat a ton...
We'd love to hear what you think..
Jixie and Denise
