How often should I feed my cat? The average adult cat needs to eat 2-3 times a day. As you get older, the amount of food you need may decrease slightly, but cats are carnivores and they need their bodies to be in peak condition so that means getting enough nutrition through their diet every single day. This may mean feeding your kitten multiple small meals throughout each day as opposed to just one large meal at night time. If your kitten is growing normally then it will probably take about 1 month for them to reach adulthood and start eating more than 3 times a day. If this is not happening by now then there could be something wrong with the way they’re being fed and we would recommend speaking with us about this before giving up on your kitten completely!
