    Ingrid….in your vast knowledge, I’m wondering if you could tell me what, on average, a 9# Tortie….yes your favorite, and mine, SHOULD weigh. She’s basically a petite cat, about 8.5yrs old, and gained some weight over past few years!! Loves to eat. I have, thanks to you, just started transitioning her to Balanced Raw Turkey….which she loves!!! Have had her about 4 years, and love her to death. Feed Wellness Core
    Duck/Turkey with the Raw. Now feeding +/-4.5 oz/day.
    Thx, Sharell

        Thx so very much for your reply Ingrid!!! You didn’t have to take the time, but I appreciate it. I kind of figured about 4 to 4.5 oz for my Tortie. I feed her in 3 divided meal each day.
        She just LOVES this Balanced Blends Raw Turkey. I’m going to have to get more $$$$ somewhere, huh? Your kitties are beautiful as well….don’t we LOVE our Torties?? Sharell
