Cat Beds and Kitchen Dog Food Storage Ideas: See How This Organized Pet Mom Stores All The Dog Treats & Dog Food

Why Cat Beds are so important?

Your cat will sleep absolutely any place they wish. They look for places which are soft and warm, comfortable and in a safe place. And a safe place can be on a high surface like your bed or a dresser, or on the floor nestled in a pile of clothes.

I keep his treats there, but not his food. (His dog food is kept in large plastic food bins in the hall closet near his food bowls in the master bedroom. More on that in a minute.)

So, why do I want to store the dog treats in the kitchen?

For these reasons:
