It's no surprise that your cat needs proper and balanced nutrition to live a long and pawesome life, but if you've ever found yourself wondering, "Why is my cat hungry all the time?" it's time to take a closer look into your cat's eating patterns.

Why Is My Cat Always Hungry?

Cats are typically grazers who snack throughout their waking hours, so if your cat finishes their meals and asks for more, this may indicate a problem, ranging from boredom and medical causes to simply needing more calories. Different commercially available foods have different caloric contents, and you can typically find a guide on the food container.

Because a cat's metabolism is impacted by their individual characteristics, including age, weight, and spay/neuter status, ask your veterinarian for guidance on determining your cat's ideal body weight. Your veterinarian can suggest how to adjust your cat's meal plan to safely reach and maintain their target weight. Your veterinarian may even recommend switching your cat to one of several other food options that can help them feel full and satisfied between meals.
