Feed containers and feed bins for cats
How should cat food be stored?
Appropriate storage is important for ensuring that dry feed remains crisp and fresh to the last crumb and for preventing opened wet food from spoiling. Dry feed retains its crisp consistency and fragrant aromas in an airtight container, such as a feed bin or feed box. Opened tins of wet food will keep in the refrigerator for a maximum of two days. Reusable lids for tightly resealing opened tins are practical. Before feeding your cat, the food should be removed from the refrigerator so that it warms to room temperature. Otherwise, your cat could get an upset stomach.
Where should cat food be stored?
To prevent your cat from helping itself whenever it wants, the food should always be kept out of your pet’s reach, preferably in a closed room or cabinet. Otherwise, your cat will be attracted by the scent.
You should store dry food in a cool location. Moisture and heat can quickly spoil the bits, causing them to turn soft and lose their flavour. The vitamins and minerals will also be lost, and, in the worst case, the food will get mouldy.
Closed tins are robust, so you can store wet food in any room. However, once the tins are opened, they should be covered or sealed with a lid and placed in the refrigerator. They can be stored there for up to two days. Please note: before being eaten, the food should be taken out of the refrigerator so that it can reach room temperature.
