I've been able to keep it (IAMS) frozen (squished down to serving size, in a plastic baggie) for several weeks. Then I "reconstitute" it by unwrapping it and thunking it into their timed feeders. Did a "dry run" to make sure it was edible/palatable and it seemed to be fine.
ONly one problem..... I forgot to mark it as cat food --- and one day when I wanted to add some hamburger to the rice I was cooking, I unwrapped....guess what....and didn't realize what I had done until I shoveled a spoonful in my mouth. At that point (in a hurry, almost late for work) I figured -- "hey it won't kill me, so I'll eat it.....!" AND "you better believe I'll never do that again!!!!" So now it's nicely marked "CAT FOOD", in its own spot in the freezer.
That's funny! I grew up in a household with several large dogs, and we (usually I) cooked their food, usually chicken, rice, and vegetables. One time I made up a huge pot of food, and after it had cooled I put it in the fridge. Some friends of my sister's came over that evening (starving teenaged boys), and raided the refrigerator. You should have seen their faces when I bitched at them for eating the dogs' food!
My husband uses liverwurst instead of butter, and often buys canned liverwurst. He has frequently managed to grab a can of cat food instead of liverwurst in the morning, and then has asked me, quite perturbed, what the cat is complaining about!
