You should probably be feeding a measured amount (if your cat is an adult this is more important than if it is a kitten) and if you do that then your kitty will eat that amount within 48 hours. If there are a couple pieces left in Bijou's bowl I usually dump them and put out a fresh dish. I mainly do this because I use clean bowls for each feeding. I bought about 12 of them at the dollar store so I can put the soiled ones in the dishwasher.
Dry food will go rancid so I usually store it in a can (I use one of those large popcorn cans that you get at Christmas time).
