plastic lids for cat food cans?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Not sure if this is the right forum for this...
I'm trying to find plastic lids for the small 3oz cans of fancy feast cat food. They only ones I can ever find are bigger ones. I only give my cat half a can a day (she gets sick if I give her more) of canned food, and then give her dry food as well. It would be nice if I could just put a lid on the cans though and not have to put the leftovers in a plastic container every day. I know, seems lazy but ....well, okay I'm lazy! I don't like having to search for a container every day! If you know where I can find these, please let me know!
Thanks!

I found them at Pet Supplies Plus. I haven't seen them anywhere else.

Petsmart /Petco

Petco has some, but they sell out quickly. Petco doesn't restock very often, so if you find them you need to stock up on them.

Actually, if you use a tupperware container it works just as well if not better. I take the lid totally off and just throw the whole can in one of those disposable containers that come with lunchmeat in them at the grocery (after washing them out well). It does the same thing as a lid: the food doesn't dry out at all or get stale. I feed 1/2 a 3oz can every day as well, and the can does perfectly well in the tupperware for just a day or so. I hate "unitaskers".

The Tupperware is a good idea. You could also ask your vet about lids, because they're often supplied with the prescription canned food. I got a couple from my vet.

This might be a terribly stupid question, but what is a unitasker?

It's not stupid at all unless your favorite channel is the Food Network and you DVR all the episodes of "Good Eats" I didn't realize I had used that word. Duh!

A unitasker is a kitchen item that does only one job. Such as those things that supposedly get the smell of garlic off your hands when you could just as easily rub your hands on the sides of your stainless steel sink (or a piece of silverware for that matter) and achieve the same result. It's a kitchen philosophy that encourages buying good-quality appliances and accesories that will do a number of jobs and forgetting about "unitaskers"-- things that do one job only. Like, buying a nice food processor instead of a blender, an electric ice crusher, etc.

Ah...lol. I love good eats and the food network, but I've never heard the word unitasker.

I don't know if they make them for the 3 oz can. I would just use a small baggie and seal it and put it in the fridge.

To answer your question, I have only ever seen those for big cans. As the daily recommended amount is listed as a few of the 3oz cans a day, they probably assume that no leftovers would result from them. Tiny Tupperware/ziploc bags are probably your best bet.

Thanks. I think I will just try the tupperware. Now why didn't I think of that!?
post #13 of 20
Well, because it's just too easy, of course!! I don't remember how I started doing it... I keep a little baby food fork in the tupperware with the food, too.

Baby food jars work for me.

I have some.. don't remember where the heck I got them. Maybe wal-mart? Anyway I don't use them (bought them back in the one cat days). If you want PM me with your address and I will mail them to you. (assuming I can find 'em)

I have some that fit both larger and smaller cans (they have extra rings of plastic inside). On the other side, they have the image of a cat face. I think Petco carries them--2 in 1 can covers.

I just bought a small lid from Petsmart. It was hanging on a plastic strip in the food aisle.

Previously, I used a piece of tin foil to cover the can- easy & disposable... no extra dirty dishes.

I bet if you googled it, you could find it on the internet and order one!

I've been using the Kitty Kaps for my canned dog foods. For the cat food I put what is left over in zip lock bag then toss them in a bowl of hot/warm water for about 15 minutes to warm it up a little since Shamie is picky about refridgerated food.
Tupperware is a great idea too.

I too, recently. It was purple and less than $1.
It had the PetSmart logo stamped on it.
It was on the strip also, but I believe it was on the shelves that had the bowls.
