Why Cats Hate Spoiled Food
The scent of spoiled or stale food can be very strong and offensive to the extremely keen olfactory sense of cats. Even if they don’t smell as bad, cats should not be given stale or spoiled food because it can possibly cause digestive upsets and illness. It should be disposed of properly so cats won’t have any access to them.
Canned pet food or wet food should not be left out of the refrigerator for more than 20 minutes because it can spoil easily, more so when the environmental temperature is high during summer and there is no airconditioning, or when the house is heated during winter. This is one important reason why canned pet food should be stored properly once it is opened. Also, be sure to use a clean spoon to get what your pet needs. Transfer the contents of the canned pet food into a clean container before placing it inside the refrigerator.
