Should my cat eat whenever they like?
Some people believe in “free-feeding” meaning the cat can eat all day, whenever they like. Others choose for a stricter regime: food twice a day, in the morning and the evening. One important thing to consider: your cat’s age. Generally, a kitten should eat four times per day, moving to twice a day when they are one year old. The problem with leaving food out all day, is that your cat will eat out of boredom rather than hunger. And this will eventually lead to an overweight kitty, with health issues.
