I went to the vet on Saturday for my cats yearly checkup. They are 2 years old now. The male cat (Joe) weights around 8kg (or 17.7 pounds), and the female cat (Moe) weights around 6kg (or 13.2 pounds). Joe's height standing up is 2.3'. Little Moe is about half his size. Their meal consists of dry food available 24/7, "satiety balance" (which is the brand that the vet told me to give them) and 200g of wet food.
The vet said they are fat. He advised me that should only feed them wet food once a week. Since Saturday I have been feeding them only dry food. Every time I get home at around 7pm, I see vomit on the floor consisting of dry food. It's as if Joe is swallowing them.
I have decided to get back on feeding them the previous diet, but with only wet food once a day. At the moment I'm feeding them Wild Freedom brand wet food. Do you think it's ok to get back on feeding them wet food once a week? Are they fat?
