I have been able to get Riot to eat half The Honest Kitchen and half kibble. I am just not sure how much he should be getting of each.

The kibble he is on recommends 2/3-3/4 cups for a 7-10lb cat.

The Honest Kitchen calls for 1/4-1/2 cup of dry mix (you need to rehydrate it with water) for a 6-10lbs cat.

Riot is 10lbs. I have been feeding 3 table spoons a day of The Honest Kitchen (about 1/4 cup) and 1/4 cup of kibble twice daily.

Is that right?

So in total he's getting 6 tablespoons and 1/2 cup a day? If that is the case I'd say it's too much. The bag recommendations are always too much for most animals. When I fed kibble my 11 pound cat got 1/2 cup a day total. My 15 pound dog gets 1/2 cup dry mixed with like 4 tablespoons of wet food total each day.

So I'd cut back, there is really know way to tell you exactly how much, especially since I know nothing about the honest kitchen dehydrated food. You'll just have to go by body weight, monitor is very closely, get a weight now and weigh like once a week or every other week. More importantly FEEL the cat, make sure the ribs and hip bones are easily felt and it they start to be harder to find cut back some.
No hes getting 3 tablespoons of Honest Kitchen daily so thats about 1/4 cup. Plus hes getting half the suggested amount of kibble
