Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
How quickly should dried food be used once bag is open?
I started eating that Orijen food a few weeks ago and my mum had bought several 400g bags (as they were half price). Now I've almost ran out and mum doesn't know if to order a 7kg bag.
A 7kg bag would last me about 100 days. What mum wants to know is - Is 100 days TOO LONG for a bag of food to be open? Will it go off? She always make sure to seal my bags of food with a clip after she takes any out to keep it airtight.
The 7kg bags work out at Â£4.21/kg whereas a 2.5kg bag is Â£6.20/kg, that's why she's thinking of ordering the 7kg one, but will it be a false economy?
I should add that this food is only available from one website in the UK, where there is a lack of decent quality dried food, so mum can't just go to a shop and buy it. If she could, she would buy the 400g bags.
