# How much should my cat eat per day?

Step 2: Find your cat(s)' Resting Energy Requirement (RER) based on their body weight.

RER = (body weight in kg)0.75  x 70

 For example: Cat name: Soju Cat weight: 4.5kg RER = (body weight in kg)0.75 x 70 RER = 4.50.75 x 70 RER = 216

 1. Open the calculator app. 2. Turn your phone horizontally. This should reveal a scientific calculator. 3. Type the weight in kg. In this example, it would be 4.5. 4. Press the xy button. 5. Type in 0.75, then press the = button. 6. Press the x button, type in 70, then press the = button. 7. The answer is your RER value. In this example, it would be 216.

Step 3: Use the RER to calculate your cat(s)' Daily Energy Requirement (DER) based on their current status.

 Status DER (kcal/day) Kitten (0 to 4 months) 2.5 x RER Kitten (5 to 12 months) 2.0 x RER Intact adult 1.4 x RER Neutered adult 1.2 x RER To gain weight 1.8 x RER of Ideal Weight To lose weight 0.8 x RER of Ideal Weight

 For example: Cat name: Soju Cat weight: 4.5kg (RER = 216) Status: Neutered adult DER = 1.2 x RER DER = 1.2 x 216 DER = 259 kcal/day Hence, Soju requires 258 kcal daily to meet his Daily Energy Requirement (DER).

Step 4: With DER, you can now calculate how many grams you should feed in a day.

Daily Intake(g) = (DER ÷ product kcal/100g) x 100

 For example: Our Chicken Recipe contains 452 kcal per 100g. Daily Intake = (DER ÷ product kcal/100g) x 100 Daily Intake = (259 ÷ 452) x 100 Daily Intake = 57g
