How much Butcher's a day?

I'm still struggling to get my fat cat's weight down sad. I've successfully got her onto Butcher's cat food and the tin says 3/4 of a tin a day but I'm presuming that is for unneutered cats and therefore she needs less? Say 1/2 a tin a day?

Our cat has half a tin per day - a quarter in the morning and a quarter at night - we top up with a few gluten-free biscuits if the last portion looks a bit small. He's 13 years old and sleeps a lot, but is a nice weight, not skinny.

Cat food manufacturers do seem to exaggerate the amount you need in the blurb on their tins.

Thanks McSnuff. That's all she had yesterday and so far today too. She is NOT impressed!! Hopefully it will do the trick though. I'd love her to reach the ripe old age of 13 smile
