If the cat owner is feeding a good quality dry food , that has a good quality protein, then the indoor cat needs only approximately 1/3 to 1/2 cup of food each day . Most high quality foods have approximately 500 calories per 8 ounce cup of food .
Most cats will need to eat 1½ to 3 large cans of cat food or ½ cup to 1½ cups of dry food per day .
I spend around 30 on litter a month , 10 on dry cat food per month , 12 every 2 or 3 months on wet catfood (I gave him 2 wet cat foods a week), and a couple bucks each month on toys. So all in all aroung $50 per month .
If the two adult cats were MINE, the 3-pound bag of cat food would last for 48 days.
The small bag lasts my one cat about two months . At night I give her a bit of Friskies canned because she likes that. If it doesnt eat it it will last longer than your cat. We buy the 5 pound bags of T/D prescription dry cat food from the pet hospital (which is only a few blocks away, so its convenient).
They’re little couch potatoes now, their nutrition needs are much lower, so it’s easy to overfeed them.” So how much food does your cat need? That’s a question best answered by a professional, though recommendations range between 24 to 35 calories a day per pound, to keep cats at a normal, healthy weight.
Most dry food averages 4 cups per pound . A 22 pound bag would contain approximately 88 cups of food.
