How many meals do your dogs, and cats, eat per day, and has it changed as time has gone on?
Also, do they seem to prefer one meal over another, or eating at one time of day over another?
Around here, we try to have Krypto eat 3x's a day because he doesn't enjoy morning meals as much as dinner. So, he ends up eating a really good dinner, and 2 other partial meals.
Part of the problem may be heat. His 'make-up' meal in the afternoon doesn't go over well at all, and I think that it's because that, when it's in the hundreds, it's just too hot. He doesn't like excessive heat.
My adult cats usually eat 2ce a day, plus snacks, if applicable.
However, Uhura and Mamou - pre-dog - were coming in to eat their dry food more often.
My lean Uhura will eat as often as you will feed her. And, comes in and meows at you for another meal.
Mamou has had some health problems this year, and had lost a lot of weight, so we pretty much give him the small containers of wet food, which his stomach tolerates well, more than 2ce a day. He's actually gaining some weight back, so I don't want to change.
The Kitty Kampers and Tux eat 2ce a day.
Unlike Krypto, the cats don't have a preference as to time of day to eat. If the food is offered, they will eat.
How about there?
