Exclamation Unanswered: Highland Lynx - food amount

Hi All,

I have a highland Lynx, she's 5 months old and I'm unsure how much I should be feeding her. I don't know if because she will grow bigger than a regular domestic cat if she needs more food or not. The vet told me to only give her 1/4 cup a day which seems very little, whereas the breeder had told me a cup a day. I don't want to overfeed/underfeed.

If anyone else has a highland Lynx id love your input on how much you feed yours!

I've just switched from kitten food to an all life stages food as vet told me i should switch over. She was spayed at only 2 months old by the breeder which I believe is part of the reason to switch her off kitten food sooner.

Thanks!

First of all you need to get your wild animal OFF kibble. Your cat (all cats are) is a strict obligate carnivore, she needs meat and moisture from her diet., not dry cereal.

Feed a high quality canned diet that doesn't contain grains or other fillers, and/or a balanced raw diet.

A growing kitten of any breed needs to be fed as much as she will eat. I don't mean stuff the kitten. I mean feed her several meals a day, several ounces at a time.

A domestic kitten generally eats up to 10 to 12 ounces of canned food a day. A larger breed wild animal will need at least as much and probably more than that.

Surely you researched this breed before making this purchase?

I don't think much of a "breeder" who feeds their wild animals dry food.

When she was spayed has nothing to do with anything.
