My boyfriend and I are trying to find a good way to bag the cat meals. We tried doing daily meals but there were just too many containers... Anyone want to share their secret? :)

When I was feeding my old cat ground raw (I didn't know then, what I'm learning now!) I would wrap it in saran wrap then freeze those 3-4 day portions, and once they were frozen, I was able to take the logs and place them in gallon sized freezer bags, so when I needed to thaw out some food, I was able to run out to the garage and pull out a log of raw and let it thaw, then place it in a rubbermaid storage container, in the fridge. Would love to hear how PMR cat feeders do it, though! :)

I also bag everything in 2-3 day meals then I feed both the cat and my ferrets out of it.  Usually what I do is take a whole chicken, duck, rabbit, game hen, grouse, some turkey (my cat is picky and doesn't eat red meats).  Whatever I manage to get, thaw them all at the same time and chop up and bag into smaller portions so there's a variety of protein sources, I also throw in some gizzards, liver and heart.  I do separate baggies with whole prey.

So do you do baggies for ALL the cats and ferrets at the same time? I am debating on doing baggies for my two cats who don't have trouble eating larger pieces and a separate baggie for my cat with an overbite (needs smaller pieces). I guess 3-4 day baggies are best, not week long ones, since the meat would go bad, right?

We prepare a mix of all kinds of stuff, it's almost always different. Package it up in 3 days worth of food and freeze the bags

But I do like the thought of using Saran Wrap....less waste that way.
