Originally Answered: Anyone do both dry and wet cat food?
Hi! I have a 3 month old Maine Coon kitten coming in a few weeks. New cat mom here!
My thought process was to eventually get him on a dry food free feed with a wet lunch/dinner for hydration. Does anyone do this? I'm a first responder so my schedule can sometimes change unexpectedly which is why I feel I need the dry food. Anyone use this method? Any suggestions on portion sizes?
Thanks so much!
Hi. I've always used wet and dry food for my cats. They won't eat the wet food unless I mix it with water, which is great because thats the main reason I feed both, to make sure they're getting extra fluids daily. They free feed the dry food throughout the day and I make a broth for them out of the wet food in the morning and evening. Since they won't eat the food itself, and normally drink all the juice, about 1/4 cup or more , I only use 1/4 of a half of a can per cat. Whatever they don't finish, I add more water to the meat and leave it near their dry food and they normally finish it before the next serving at dinner time. Hope this helps!
