How long does a 20lb bag of cat food last?
A 20-pound bag holds about 100-plus cups of kibble. That means it will last several months. Cats usually weigh about 10 pounds, so you might end up throwing some out. In that case, it might make more sense to just buy smaller bags or break the big one up in two or three smaller ones to freeze.

If the two adult cats were MINE, the 3-pound bag of cat food would last for 48 days.
How long should a 3.5 lb bag of cat food last?
There will be approximately 4 cups per pound of kibble. The 3.5 pound bag will have close to 14 cups, the 7 pound bag close to 28 cups and the 15.5 pound bag close to 62 cups. For 2 cats weighing close to 9 pounds, they will eat close to 1 cup per day so the 15.5 pound bag will last close to 62 daysmore.

Opened cans should be stored in the fridge, at temperatures between 40-45°F, for a maximum of 5-7 days. Any cat or dog food remaining after that time should be thrown out.
Is it OK to leave dry cat food out all day?
You can safely leave dry cat food out for several days and it won’t spoil, but it’s best to throw out leftovers and wash the dish on a daily basis, to keep Fluffy’s food at its freshest. Keep in mind that dry food will grow stale within a day and may not be as appealing to your cat once this happens.
How long will an 8 lb bag of cat food last?
That sized bag should last one cat at least 2 months if it is all you’re feeding.
How long should a 5lb bag of cat food last?
Keep in mind that it’s better to mix a few (2’s ok, 3’s better, 4’s even better etc etc) different brands of cat food off Reaper’s list. So in the first few months, the 5lbs should last approx 5 months, and after that, I’d suggest buying smaller bags as you mix in other foods.
How quickly do cats go through food?
Because cats have a simple stomach structure, once the stomach is filled with food, it will empty within a few hours as food moves into the small intestine. After 8 – 10 hours, an empty stomach begins to send signals to the brain stimulating a hunger response.
How many cups of food should I feed my cat?
If the cat owner is feeding a good quality dry food, that has a good quality protein, then the indoor cat needs only approximately 1/3 to 1/2 cup of food each day. Most high quality foods have approximately 500 calories per 8 ounce cup of food. The major protein source of the food is very important.
How long does a 16 lb bag of cat food last?

How do you know if dry cat food is bad?
How can I tell if dry cat food has gone bad? Stale dry cat food will have a sour, pungent, or rotten smell. You may also notice mold or bugs on the kibble if it got exposed to moisture. If your cat falls sick or experiences some discomfort after eating the food, it is likely the food has gone bad.
How can you tell if cat dry food is bad?
Of course, you can’t judge a food’s quality by smell alone—many pet foods, especially wet cat foods, smell fairly pungent. However, if you’re used to a particular brand or type of food, you’ll notice the product smells slightly off, especially if you’re looking for it because the item has passed its “expiration” date.
Can I leave wet cat food out overnight?
The answer is no. You cannot leave the wet cat food out overnight as it will get spoiled in one to four hours depending on the temperature. Aside from that, wet food dries out fairly quickly. This makes the food unappetizing and inedible even an hour after being out.
