@weddingguest101:  Our cat does the same thing.  We started keeping the bag in the cabinet because she’d do it even when there food in her bowl.  Then we actually started putting the cat food in a cereal-tupperware thing, and just pour it in her bowl from there- works great!

My parents cat started chewing open her bag of food.  they keep the big bag in an old kitty litter container now.  they also use a Tupperware cannister type container to keep a small amount in the closet nearby.

My cats have never done this, but then again, I follow the practice of keeping a full food bowl and letting the cats decide when they are hungry and how much they wish to eat, so that may be a factor.

I currently keep my cat food in a roller storage bin from Petsmart, because I didn’t always get the zip top cat food bags to close, and they were markedly more excited about a new bag, so I figure the food goes stale. I wouldn’t want to eat potato chips that have been out for a month, I wouldn’t want them with stale food as their only source.

@weddingguest101:  Last year at xmas my parents or siblings wrapped up a box of dog treats for our dog. The CAT ended up chewing on the box trying to break in. He’s also chewed on his cat food bag but my parents usually use one of the Tupperware cereal things like someone else mentioned, and keep it in a cupboard. My FI loves the cat… thinks he is hilarious because the cat will eat chips out of his hand and he’s never seen a cat eat chips. All in all the cat is a pig and you have to keep food away. He jumps on the counter and licks/eats things too! My parents also have a lab whose life goal is to obtain snacks. It’s ridiculous around there house lol, always an animal begging for something…

Our little boys would definitely get into to the bag if I left it out.  I keep it stored in a cabinet.  I always leave food out but the moment you pick up their dish they cry thinking it will never return.  My boys are about 8 months and they get into EVERYTHING!  One of them even started unwrapping gifts under the tree around 1 this morning!  He must be really excited for Christmas.  Ironically enough, it was a gift my fiance got me that he labled to Mom from the kitties….

Our cats get into the kibble bag. So I store the bags in the plastic burlap sacks the shell corn comes in. Of course I get our kibbles in 20 lbs. bags.
