Your kitty is not fully mature until he is 1 year old; and will continue to 'fill out' until he is two years old. All this growing burns calories.
So, keep the dry food out at all times for your kitten. I recommend a dry food dispenser to make this little chore easier for you.
My female is ravenous constantly at age 15 months. She will eat dry cat food for as long as 15 minutes constant inhaling, then go back for more in a few minutes rest. She was eating more than one cup a day, if it was left out. I have put myself on a timer of 1/8 cup every 3 hours until my bedtime, and she cries in the night for more food. She is otherwise healthy, but fat. Any suggestions?
