Ann, if you can tell me how old your cat is, confirm that he's neutered, and tell me his desired weight in kg, I can tell you the recommended kilocalories of food he should be eating daily. Once I tell you that, you then need to find out how many kilocalories are in each tin of food. If that information isn't on the label, the manufacturers's website usually has it.

my cat is female, 14 years old and weighs 5kg. She is neutered.

Thank you. Her daily requirement is 325 kilocalories if you're happy with her at 5 kg. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
