What kind of catfood do you use? Wet? Dry? What brand?
I normally feed Innova Dry. Our new kitty is having trouble adjusting to being home and isn't eating so I bought some Wellness cans. He actually picked at and nibbled on it. He wound up eating half a can. He's a big boy (16 lbs) so it isn't enough but its better and I'm sure he will calm on down in a few more days.
So anyhow, what do you use?

we use dry. purina cat chow indoor formula. if he is 16 lbs then hes overweight and you should cut down on his food anyways.

not preaching. i have a fat cat too. but we are waiting to see what the vet tells us about him before we change his diet.

Dry. My Kitty has a sensitive tummy and she was throwing up often. I thought she was sick or had a worm or something. The vet suggested changing her food to see if that helped. I was giving her Friskies dry. I switched to Eukanuba sensitive stomach. It helped instantly. She rarely gets sick now. Its a little pricier but it lasts a while and its worth it to not pick up cat vomit every day.

Friskies indoor. It's the only thing my female cat can keep down.

He's actually not overweight, just a BIG cat. His brother, on the other hand, is overweight. He's 20lbs. I've only had the smaller one since Friday and the bigger since Nov., and he has lost a couple pounds. They are 8 years old so on senior low calorie food.

You don't have to tell me the benefits of premium food. We only use premium brands. My dogs are grain free. They are on Nature's Recipe which is $50 for a 26lb. bag. The Innova for the cats is $45 for 16 pounds but that lasts 2+ months (not sure how long it will last with two cats. Just with Moe we've had he same bag since the beginning of December).
