Should I feed my cat wet food as well as dry food?

Vets will often recommend that you feed your cat a combination of wet and dry food. This is because wet food can be beneficial to cats with certain health problems, cats that are overweight and because cats often like the variety. However, dry food is cheaper, can be used in toys and is more convenient.

Should I allow my cat to free feed dry food?

Often cats that free feed become overweight. If you find that your cat is able to free feed without becoming too overweight, it would be ok to free feed your cat. However, if you find that they start gaining weight, it would likely be best not to free feed them.
