Calories in cat food?

Cat food and calories. A mystery wrapped in an enigma.

Fun fact: Did you know ad libitum feeding means free feeding or feeding as one desires?  Cats who eat out of a plastic food dispenser or from ever-full bowls are eating ad libitum. Humans who eat at all-you-can-eat buffets are eating ad libitum. The result is the same with either cat or human. Blorpitude ensues.

Breaking news!!! “Fortunately, AAFCO regulations will be requiring a calorie statement on all pet foods in the near future.”
