These are the recommended feeding amounts based on the ideal body condition for indoor adult cats of various weights. Individual cats’ energy requirements may differ. Adjust the amount fed to obtain or maintain your cat’s optimum weight. If feeding NUTRO® MAX® CAT Food for the first time, we suggest you blend increasing amounts of NUTRO® MAX® CAT Indoor Weight Control Cat Food with your old food for six days. Keep fresh drinking water available at all times, provide plenty of exercise and see your veterinarian regularly. Serve dry or lightly moistened. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing in a cool, dry location.
