My cat Pingu is about 5 months old and 7 lbs and has been on raw since I got him in July. He eats mostly whole adult mice and whole chicks with some franken-prey meals in between.
He eats a lot, basically however much he wants since he is a kitten, but he does have a tiny bit of a tummy roll. Is a bit of fat when they are kittens normal? Should I start cutting back on his food?
When looked at from above he does not look fat, in fact he has a slight waist. Pingu's body seems to be perfect except for his tummy pooch. Should that even be a reason to cut back on food? Is it just a kitten thing?
I could start feeding him by percentages but I have read to feed kittens about 5-10 percent of their current body weight and that is a pretty broad spectrum. Pingu already gets about 7-10 ounces a day, which is roughly around 8% of his current weight.
I don't know if I am worrying for nothing, but his tummy pooch is almost a small handful. Everything else is perfect though.
