How many pounds of food should you feed a cat?
Many wet foods come in three-ounce cans and recommend feeding approximately one can a day for every three to three and a half pounds of body weight. However, brands vary. A happy, healthy cat will maintain a good weight and stay active.
How long will a 22 lb bag of cat food last?
That sized bag should last one cat at least 2 months if it is all you’re feeding.
How long does a 20 lb bag of cat food last?
A 20-pound bag holds about 100-plus cups of kibble. That means it will last several months. Cats usually weigh about 10 pounds, so you might end up throwing some out. In that case, it might make more sense to just buy smaller bags or break the big one up in two or three smaller ones to freeze.
How many sachets of food should a cat have a day?
Have you ever wondered how many pouches to feed a cat a day? Cats should be fed 2 to 4 pouches each day. Cats need a specific combination of nutrients in their food to keep them healthy and match their activity levels.
How long does a 5lb bag of cat food last?
Keep in mind that it’s better to mix a few (2’s ok, 3’s better, 4’s even better etc etc) different brands of cat food off Reaper’s list. So in the first few months, the 5lbs should last approx 5 months, and after that, I’d suggest buying smaller bags as you mix in other foods.
How long does a 7 lb bag of cat food last?
There will be approximately 4 cups per pound of kibble. The 3.5 pound bag will have close to 14 cups, the 7 pound bag close to 28 cups and the 15.5 pound bag close to 62 cups. For 2 cats weighing close to 9 pounds, they will eat close to 1 cup per day so the 15.5 pound bag will last close to 62 daysmore.
How long does a 6lb bag of cat food last?
16 lb = 64 cups. I use 2 cups per day for my cats and it lasts for a month. If you only have one cat it should last 2 to 2 1/2 months depending on how much you use.

How can I tell if dry cat food has gone bad? Stale dry cat food will have a sour, pungent, or rotten smell. You may also notice mold or bugs on the kibble if it got exposed to moisture. If your cat falls sick or experiences some discomfort after eating the food, it is likely the food has gone bad.

Should cats have food available at all times?
“If a cat can maintain his weight, free choice feeding is okay,” says Dr. Kallfelz. Even dry food left out for your cat to free feed needs to be fresh, so be sure to provide new food each day. If free feeding doesn’t work, you need to control how much they eat.
