I just checked the feeding instructions on the can: "For adult cats feed 1 1/2 to 2 1/4 containers per 8 lbs."

Even at 9 lbs, we would have been overfeeding her.

So, for 9 lbs, the recommendation would be 1.6875 cans - 2.51325 cans/day. Given that the pet food industry is set up to sell pet food, so they could have a bias toward recommending more food than necessary, I would definitely say that you should be on the low end - especially since your cat has more than doubled her weight in only 6 months.
