She eats 1 3oz can of wet food per day plus about 1/4 cup of kibble. She is begging for more but don't know if she should give in to her pleads or not.
First time cat owner...any advice would be a great help. We don't want to over feed her, but we don't want to starve her either...
Her weight sounds just about right to me. Her weight gain should begin to level off in the next month or two. If she continues rapid weight gain into her 10th or 11th month then it might be time to re-evaluate her diet but right now she sounds just fine.
