My kittens seem more content with a bedtime snack, but is this hard on their digestion to eat before night sleep? April 4, 2016 at 9:42 pm #9638 Dr. Jeff FeinmanKeymaster Sorry for the slow reply Jennifer. I’m just now seeing your question. My answer is (yup, you guessed it) that it depends. Some do beter eating early, some need a pm snack. Typically cats eat smaller, more frequent meals so one before bed (and even overnight using an automated feeder) is OK. Have fun this week!
