|I give my cat wet food twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. For the past few days I've been noticing that the cans I open spoil really fast. The first one spoiled after two days in the fridge, when usually it keeps for four days. I remembered that the pet shop owner said that it can only keep for a few days in the can after being opened (I usually cover it with a plastic bag and a rubber band and I never had a problem before), so I tried transferring it to a sealed container after opening. It spoiled after a few hours in the fridge. I opened a third can and decided to freeze portions (I read that some people here do it), so I gave him a portion for breakfast, kept a portion in a sealed plastic bag for dinner, and froze the rest. Now I went to take out the portion for dinner and it's spoiled! I have no idea how the frozen ones fare yet, I guess I'll know tomorrow.
My refrigerator is working fine (nothing else spoils), and the food is the same brand as always. It smells fine when I open it but after a few hours in the fridge it just starts to smell rotten. I thought maybe my sense of smell was off, since I've had a cold the last few days, but the cat doesn't touch the food either after the first bite.
Any thoughts? I'm clueless. I don't want to change the food because it's the only one I can find here that doesn't have either fish or chicken in it (he's allergic to both). Not to mention, if I keep throwing away food after I open it it's going to make a real dent in my pocket.
