How to serve wet food?
In terms of the convenience of feeding, wet cat food performs significantly worse than dry cat food. You cannot put wet cat food in a bowl without the help of cutlery or special measuring cups. Its storage is also a bit more problematic. For food in pouches, special clips to close the bag will be useful, and in the case of cans, reusable plastic or silicone lids will be the best. Once opened, the wet food should be kept refrigerated and used within a maximum of 2 days. Do not leave wet food in the cat's bowl for more than 30 minutes. After this time, cover the bowl and hide the food, preferably in the fridge or other cool place, and try to serve again after some time.

This will significantly reduce the growth of bacteria on the bottom, which are responsible for the unpleasant odours that remain on the dish.

How do I change my cat's food?
If you decide to change your cat's food, remember that you can't do it overnight. Cats have a very sensitive digestive system, and drastic changes in food composition can cause a range of digestive problems. Therefore, when introducing a new type of food to your pet's diet, do it gradually. Wet cat food is a bit more problematic here, as it is more difficult to measure the perfect portion than with dry food. Additionally, during the transition period, you must prepare to store twice the amount of open pet food packages. For the first three days, give your cat a mixture of the old food with the new formula in a 3:1 ratio. On the third and fourth day, give your cat the current and new food mixed in a 1:1 ratio at the meal. On the fifth and sixth day of the meal, the ratio should be 3:1 in favour of the new wet food for your cat. On the 7th day of the whole process, you can already give a meal consisting only of the new formula. This way you will not only avoid possible stomach problems, but also give your cat time to get used to the new taste or texture of the food. Cats can be extremely picky about food, so in order not to discourage them, always introduce new products gradually.
