Feeding calculators for adult cats and kittens

The feeding calculators below will allow you to calculate how much of each recipe you need to feed every day.

Step by step guide:
​​1. To begin, select the recipe you would like to use. At the bottom right of the first page of the pdf, you
will see the "Caloric Density" of that diet. Make a note of the number.

If using our quick guide to raw feeding, make a note of the caloric density of the main meat ingredient. 

2. Check your cat's body weight, if you need to.

3. Enter your cat's details into the calculator below - there's a calculator for adult cats at the top,   
and one specially for growing kittens below.

4. Where the calculator asks for the caloric density of the recipe, add the figure from the recipe you
have selected (step 1).

This will allow you to easily calculate the amount you need to feed per day, for any of the provided recipes.

These calculations are based on the average needs of pet cats, but everyone is an individual and true requirements may vary by ± 25% or more. We recommend monitoring your cat or kitten's body weight on a weekly (or twice weekly, for very young kittens) basis. This will allow you to adjust the amount fed per day based on their weight:

If your cat is losing weight, we recommend increasing the amount fed per day by 10-15%.
If you cat is gaining weight (and is not a kitten), we recommend decreasing the amount by 10-15%.
Growing kittens will initially need increasing amounts of food per day, and then less food as they get closer to adulthood; we recommend weighing at least weekly and using the calculator to review the amount fed.
