Our cat it 5 yrs old, she eats in the kitchen, and only one kind of dry and caned. She has never really been overweight, 8.7 lbs. My husband thinks the cat wants a varity so he has a dish of dry in the basement with 3 different kinds of food, not all mixed together, one kind today, another kind tomorrow etc. I don't know if Pokey really eats much of it, but I think she does. I don't like this because now I don't know how much she is eating. Also she was lost for 16 days (stollen) she somehow got away and came back home 2 days ago. She lost 1 1/2 lbs, but is OK otherwise, thank Heaven. Anyway I think especially now she should only eat one kind of food. What do you think?
