I hope this question isn’t as stupid as it sounds.
I have two cats, both are old (14 and 20) and both are on the thin side. One is pretty normal (Schatzi), and one is downright skinny(Taz).
They have dry food out all the time to munch on. In addition, in the morning and evening I put out wet food - half of a medium sized can - 1/4 in each dish. (It’s Special Kitty Senior - the vet said it was fine).
Typically Schatzi will have a few bites and then leave the rest - Taz then finishes the remainder. The same thing happens in the evening. FWIW, I sprinkle a 1/4 pill of Pepcid AC on their food at night to help them digest, as per their vet.
Both of them have a clean bill of health, except Taz is skinny.
So basically Taz gets an entire tin of wet food to himself each day plus as much dry food as he likes.
However, every time I’m in the kitchen he acts as though he’s starving to death.
So, should I give Taz more food? A whole additional can? He does get lots of kitty treats as well.
I await elucidation. (And Taz awaits more food…)
