How much should you feed an underweight or thin cat? Here are some general rules:

  • Underweight cats: Feed your cat 1-1/2 times the "usual" amount of food and make an appointment to see your veterinarian about your cat's body condition. Consider switching to a food with higher protein and fat content.

  • Lean cats: Many healthy cats are a bit thin, especially active young male cats. Consider increasing total daily food or caloric intake by 25 percent. Weigh your cat every week, if possible, to chart progress.

    If your cat is not eating well or loosing weight, please see your veterinarian for an examination of your cat to ensure there are not health problems causing his thin weight.
