Also if you still have your cat you can reuse the baggies for litter box waste after the food's been used.

I've never had an issue with them leaking either... and I THOUGHT I had quart sizes.. maybe not? What size is a standard sandwich bag?

I usually get a back and a thigh in there and there's barely enough room for a chicken neck, and usually that doesn't equal a pound and Frag's getting a pound per feeding..

eta; Nope, BF took the cat in the split.

I usually end up stocking up on the gallon baggies when Meijers has them on sale. Or I will get the 2 gallon baggies. Stuff a couple days worth of foods into a baggie, and when its empty, I will wash it out and reuse it. All the dog/cat food goes into a 5 gallon (I think) tote in the fridge. That way its all contained and I dont' have to worry about any leakage or anyone smelling it.
When I start ordering the bulk (we are on the same FB feeding list) I've thought about using the shoe box totes for the boys in the fridge, IF I can get them in color.

Hello DJEtzel,
Very nice...
The easiest way is what Jefflough is doing with Ziplocks.

I don't even do that, 3 days in the freezer in disposable sandwich bags that fold over does the trick.

We all know that the way cats/dogs are put together that even this is not necessary.
We, and holistic veterinarians have to keep on reminding the AVMA, AAHA and unethical vets about this.

Nice job,
Roger Biduk

I use both ziplock's and plastic containers. Not a whole lot of organazation here, and nothing is weighed. I eyeball everything.
