Hi! I have a year-old (almost two!) tortoiseshell cat who my vet has deemed overweight. He recommended that I switch her from dry food to wet food - however, I work nights at a restaurant and wouldn't be home to feed her dinner each night if I did this. I was wondering if I'd be able to feed her wet food in the morning, and then have her kibble dispenser give her dry food in the evening? Or would this be bad for her?
Also, if I should only be feeding her dry food, should I cut back on the amount? I already tried once (only reduced it by 1/4 of a cup) and my cat lost her mind. I was worried she was very hungry so I started giving her the same amount again. Would she get used to the reduced amount? I just felt so bad, she would lick the kibble bowl like she hadn't eaten all day.
Any advice would be much appreciated!!
