Unused portions of canned cat food should be refrigerated, to maintain quality and prevent spoilage until the next feeding. To prevent possible digestion problems related to temperature differences, refrigerated food should be brought to room temperature before it is offered to the cat.


Dry food should be stored in a cool, dry location, and used within 6 months of purchase. Lengthy storage decreases the activity and potency of many vitamins. Storing dry food in an airtight container will prevent further nutrient deterioration and help maintain palatability. Do not buy a year’s worth of food just because it is on sale.
