Since Homey and Nitnoy, I feed half canned and dry. I also have water fountains and that makes a diffrence in how much they drink. I have to fill up the 2 fountains every morning and afternoon. Each takes 64 ounces. Course Casey spills some. She likes to bat at the water before she drinks. I never thought about how much per day per cat, just feed them. I usually give about 1/4 cup in morning, afternoon and evening of the dry Blue Buffalo and 1 can divided by 7. I mix the can with 2 cans of hot water. The heat makes it smell more and they always drink the liquid and later on eat the meat.
