I have a question to ask about cat food. I feed my cats (I have two,
one is maine-coone, the other her daughter is half maine-coone and
american shorthair). The mother weighs 10 lbs. and the daughter is
bigger and weighs 16 lbs. I feed them twice a day with Eukanuba dry
weight control formula. I give them for the day 1/4 in morning and 1/4 in the evening. I also give them a quarter of one packet of whiskas homestyle pouch soft food. They get a half of one packet each per day.
What I want to know is if the food I am feeding them is good for them or not. Would I be better off using Innova or Nutro-Max.?? They are not what you call active cats, and the 16lb one is fat. One is three years the other two. I would appreciate your imput on this matter.
Thank you,

If they are doing good with the food they are eating, I would not switch. Eukanuba is one of the better foods. I don't know what the recomended amount for each cat is with that food. I would stick with the recomended amounts. The wet food is not quite as good for them. It puts the weight on more so than the dry.

The 10 lb cat is not overweight for a Maine Coon, I don't think 16 is either for that breed. however, if U R concerned, there are "Diet" foods available, I believe Science Diet offers one.
