Back to Clyde though. He is 4 mos old now, growing beautifully, and gorging himself a few times a week when he goes thru yet another growth spurt. For kittens and puppies, I am a strong supporter in letting them regulate themselves until weight becomes an issue (if it ever does). They need an awful lot of calories to keep up with all that growing and I for one cannot say for sure when they are needing more food more often. Both Waverli and Clyde, as well as Emily, have been/were great about eating what they need, when they need it. This is such a different concept from kibble where the strict feeding instructions are on the back of the bag. And make sure you don't feed large breeds too much or they'll grow too quick and beware of protein levels, etc.
