I saw that it is better to feed a cat homemade or canned food than to give it dry food, since a cat will not drink enough water for it's own health. Probably a better idea might be to mix soft food with dry food or do all soft food.
Also, neutering a male cat too young can lead to problems later in life.

For those of us who have cats, you know how cat food sticks to their feeding dish and is hard to scrub away. My tip is to cut the top off an empty laundry jug but leave the jug handle.
Once done, use the jug to soak the small cat food dishes. I suggest you use more than one small cat food dish so that when one dish is on the floor feeding fussy-the- feline, the other dish is soaking in the jug. Do not over feed your cat. One or two spoonfuls of canned food at a feeding is enough. Store the rest in a plastic container in the fridge. Your cat will ask for more food later in the day. You will actually save money on cat food!
Why? Because when given too much food, the little fur balls tend to eat only a certain amount,then they leave the rest to dry up in the dish. At least with the jug method of cleaning, you won't have to waste time scrubbing dried cat food out of cat food dishes.

Here are questions related to Feeding a Cat Soft Food.
I recently rescued a stray cat. He is a beautiful, affectionate cat. He loves canned (wet) cat food, but it seems to give him massive diarrhea. Is there a brand that I can pick up at the grocery store that is safer on their stomachs without breaking my budget at the same time?
Just an FYI, he's been spaded, had all his shots, and is doing well health wise. He only has the diarrhea problem when fed the wet food.
