James Wellbeloved Life Stage Light Fish 300g
Light Cat Fish
James Wellbeloved Light is formulated to meet the needs of the adult cat which is overweight or which is prone to weight gain. It contains 15% fewer calories than the standard adult food and has higher levels of dietary fibre to help the cat feel fuller with a lower calorie intake. A higher protein level increases the likelihood that any weight loss will be loss of fatty tissue rather than muscle tissue. Because they may be under more strain in the heavier cat, James Wellbeloved supports joints and heart with a mix of glucosamine, chondroitin, herbs and extra taurine.
Carefully crafted & nutritionally balanced complete dry cat food for the health and wellbeing of adult cats from 12 months that are overweight or prone to gain weight.
Bag sizes: 0.3kg,1.5kg and 4kg bags
Using all ourknowledge and experience, we’ve created James Wellbeloved Light Fish Adult. We take a handful of ingredients from nature, one source of animal protein and combine them with all the vitamins and minerals your cat needs. And all the great taste it deserves. For added peace of mind, it’s naturally hypoallergenic so less likely to cause an adverse food reaction, made without cereals such as rice and barley for those more sensitive dogs and you will never see any added artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. Not now, not ever.

Cats and kittens like to eat little and often, so the daily serving should ideally be split into several smaller meals throughout the day. Supply plenty of clean, fresh drinking water at all times.
What is the expected adult body weight?
In most cases, all we have to go on is the weight of the mother but remember that, in general, the male kitten will be around 30% heavier than its female littermate at maturity. So, if the mother weighs around 3.5kg, then that’s a good estimate for the female kitten’s final weight, but the Tom could be a whole kilo heavier at around 4.5kg.
What is a normal cat?
We think that he or she has the correct bodyweight, spends a lot of time sleeping and grooming but is allowed to roam outdoors and enjoys a regular play session with their owner.
If feeding both wet and dry food during the day, reduce the daily allowance of dry food by 20g for every pouch fed.
The recommended daily serving is only a guide as requirements vary considerably from cat to cat and can depend on whether other foods are also offered. Ideally, split the daily allowance into numerous meals throughout the day – cats like to be fed little and often. Feed at room temperature. If the whole pouch is not used, refrigerate unused portion. Supply plenty of clean, fresh drinking water at all times.
Every cat is unique
There are a number of factors that play into your cat’s metabolism rate, and thus how much food they need to eat each day to maintain their ideal weight: age, size, the amount they exercise, and whether they are pregnant or nursing. Generally, naturally large cats require more food to power their larger muscles, older cats are more sedentary so need to eat a little less, and kittens are undergoing energy-demanding growth-spurts.
Most pet food manufacturers provide a daily food allowance based on the size of your cat. To help you feed your cat the correct amount for their activity level, James Wellbeloved provides cat feeding guides for three activity levels: lean/very active, normal and indoor/overweight. But remember these are just guidelines and this quantity should be adjusted according to body condition.
Neutering can also influence your cat’s activity levels. In general, post neutering cats show a decline in activity and consequently this is coupled with a need to decrease their calorie intake.
A balanced diet
What you feed your cat also plays a big part in how much you are feeding them. Cat food is available in different formats: wet and dry. The decision on what format to feed is up to you and your cats’ preference, with both options offering benefits. If you decide to feed a mix of the two, be sure to work out proportions correctly so your cat isn’t overfed.
Personality is key
The two great measures of whether you are feeding your cat correctly are: to check their weight and body condition score (we recommend once every two weeks), and to cater their food according to their behaviour. House-cats are likely to live a more sedentary lifestyle than outdoor cats, so their diet will need to reflect their energy requirements. Equally, just as humans change their habits throughout their lifetime, so do our feline companions. As cats age they generally become more sedentary and as a result an older cat doesn’t need to eat as much relative to their weight as a growing kitten or a high-energy middle-aged cat to maintain its ideal weight.
So, pay close attention to their behaviour, body shape and weight, and, if you notice a tubby middle emerging or their energy starts to sap, it might be time to adjust the portions.
If you think your cat is overweight, you should speak to your vet before starting a weight reduction programme. Too rapid a loss can be dangerous for your cat so it is important to weigh your cat regularly. your cat could differ substantially from average – requirements vary considerably between cats of the same weight. The predicted weight loss is based on a 15% reduction in calorie intake from the level necessary to maintain current weight. If your cat fails to lose weight, you should consult a vet.
