My Kitten is around 9 months old now. He really likes Felix AGAIL Kitten pouches but they do not fill him up. In a morning after he wakes me up at 6am he will eat a full pouch and still be so hungry he will meow for more food and then eat a bowl of go cat kitten biscuits.
I know they may not be the best quality foods but he does like them and i am on a budget.
Would it be any better if i bought the Felix Adult AGAIL pouches? Would they fill him up more or do i really need wait until he is 12 months old?

I am a volunteer with an animal rescue. I am not a professional, but I have a fair amount of experience with different cats and different owners.
What does your vet say? Is he concerned?
Is the kitten neutered? Wormed and deflead?
What is his build? How much he should be eating is determined by that, not a blank age group. There can be a huge difference between two kitties. I once handled two siblings who differed radically. The male could be neutered at 4 months, but his sister had to wait until she was six months as she was so petite. She was completely healthy, just petite.
Your cat may be a grazer. He may need 3 or 4, or even more , small meals a day. Feeding him only twice a day may not suit his personality or digestion.
Have a genuine variety of foods. Cats get bored with the same food for every meal every day. Wouldn't you get bored of the same sodding meal every single day? I always keep a variety of brands with different textures and different flavours. I have about three different foods in rotation at a time ( lucky I have a fridge.) I have two cats myself. One will happily eat raw along with tinned, the other won't. They also have their own distinct likes and dislikes. Each cat is an individual, so what may suit one cat may definitely not suit another!
Look at the ingredients list of Go Cat, whiskas etc. Then look at the ingredients list of something like lily's, Applaws, Canagan. There's a reason why the cheap brands are cheap: they are full of cruddy fillers that cats don't need like sugar, cereals, colourings. Cats are obligate carnivores. Giving them coloured sugary cereal is ridiculous.

After a lot of looking around for a high quality food, I've settled on this for my Siamese.https://www.zooplus.co.uk/esearch.htm#q%3DBozita%26catl%3D3Cat%3EWet%20Cat%20Food%3EBozita%26cats%3D3Cat%253EWet%2520Cat%2520Food%253EBozita
It's over 95% meat so keeps her fuller for longer. It's also excellent value for money :money:
It's only available online, but delivery is quick. You could also have a look at some of the natural chew treats available to provide stimulation and help with dental health - dehydrated chicken, other meats and fish for example.

This link doesn't work for me, but the wet Bozita isn't high meat content (yet i'm positive it used to be, as i've fed it before for that reason)
Is the website wrong, am I confused?
