For the last few years, we’ve talked about getting a cat but the time never felt right. I had a cat that I adopted as a kitten when I was in the first grade. I loved growing up with Mittens. She was my best friend and the best furry friend I could ask for. She lived twenty one years and passed away when I was pregnant with my oldest. When he was younger, his allergies were out of control and we honestly didn’t think we could even get a cat with how bad they were. Fast forward, to when my daughter was born. She’s loved cats since she could understand what they are. I even joked that I thought she was part cat with some of her mannerisms. Now that she’s 3, all she talked about was getting a cat. Any chance she could get. About three weeks ago we stopped in our local adoption center and brought home our newest additions – Pudgie and Bentley – two Scottish Fold cats. Being a pet owner is a whole new world and I knew I need something to store their dry food in so I created this adorable cat food storage container for them.
It was such a simple project that not only keeps their food as fresh as can be but also keeps my little helper, and the cats, out of it. Plus it looks nicer in my kitchen than bags of opened food. All you need to re-create this project at home is a 6 gallon galvanized steel bucket with lid, some white craft vinyl, and your Silhouette or Cricut machine.
It literally took mere minutes to put my own little touch on the galvanized steel bucket. The lid is nice and snug so you don’t have to worry about anyone who’s not supposed to be in the food getting in there.
Plus it looks super cute. I didn’t want to keep looking at the half empty bags and this definitely solved the problem.
I used my Silhouette machine to personalize it with the simple “CAT FOOD” words and cut them out on white vinyl.
Once the words were cut, I gently peeled off the extra vinyl.
Then I added the transfer tape on top of each word. Make sure you press it down real good so it sticks. I’ve found a credit card works great for this part.
Then I lined the words up on the container where I wanted them to go. Using the credit card again, I made sure they were securely on there.
Then I slowly peeled back the transfer tape.
I was left with the perfect storage container for their dry cat food.
When they were adopted, their foster told me that they mainly ate dry cat food and on occasion the wet variety. So when I had to shop for cat food, I turned to 9Lives®.
While they mainly eat the dry cat food, I picked up some of the wet foods for a little treat.
Right now they’re really loving the 9Lives® Meaty Paté with Chicken and Tuna Canned. The food is smooth and satisfying and a treat they absolutely love.
Since I picked up the big bag of 9Lives Daily Essentials® (It was the Bonus Bag (13.2 lb). I needed something to hold the food to keep it fresh until they were ready to eat it all and that’s how the idea for this cat food storage container was born.
I trust 9Lives Daily Essentials® to give our newest additions the nutrition they need day in and day out.
9Lives Daily Essentials® cat food delivers nutrition that helps support heart health, clear vision, strong muscles, and healthy skin and coat all things that are important for our furry friends.
