Decorative cat food containers are awesome. In fact, I love anything decorated with cats, cat prints, and other cat-related things – so I may a bit bias.
On the practical side, however, cat food storage containers are pretty important and useful things to have if you want to keep your cat’s food fresh and close to hand.
The packaging most cat food comes in doesn’t look great. The boxes I use tend to tear when I’m popping open the flap, and the plastic ones aren’t great to handle. Know what I’m talking about?
I have the Burgon and Ball cat food storage tin you can see below. I keep it topped up by pouring packs of food into it and scoop out what I need when I’m feeding my cats.
If you’re looking for a cat-related storage tin/container then look no further. I’ve listed 5 of the best storage containers to keep your cat food fresh while looking stylish below:
5 of the Best Decorative Cat Food Containers
Burgon and Ball Cat Food Storage Tin
This is the cat food container I have. A friend bought it for me as a moving in present when we moved to our current home. A pretty cool present from an awesome friend, eh.
It’s made from galvanized steel and is finished with a powder coating. So it makes a familiar clunky metal noise that my cats are very attuned to hearing now.
When they hear me moving the tin they magically appear with a hungry look on their faces. A phenomenon I think all cat owners are very familiar with too!
It’s hard to conceptualize the size from a picture. It’s 16.5cm x 11cm x 20cm. So not huge,

Now Designs Cat Food Storage Tin
I saw this tin from Now Designs and had to show it to the community here. Who doesn’t like the simple cat designs with a “meow”?
If you really want it but don’t need a food storage tin why not use it for storing something else, like stationery, biscuits, bits and bobs, anything really.
I never need a reason to buy cool cat-related stuff. Hence why I’ve got way more than I need and end up giving some away or selling it on. Well, there’s an idea, why not buy it as a gift for someone. 🙂

Bone Dry Ceramic Cat Food Storage Container
Some people love ceramic accessories. Personally, it’s not my favorite. But if it’s yours, I figured I would feature a ceramic cat food storage container in the hope that I’ve helped you find what you’re looking for.
The pros are that it’s a heavy container, and it has a silicon base, so no slipping, sliding, or being knocked off the kitchen side by a hungry cat trying to help themselves.
They also make food bowls in the same range, along with offering some different sizes and patterns. So, I recommend hopping over to Amazon and taking a look at their range if you’re after some ceramic kitty accessories.

Lesser & Pavey Classic Cat Food Storage Tin with Scoop
If you’re looking for a classic, vintage style design to fit in with the rest of your decor then hopefully this storage tin from Lesser & Pavey is just what you’re looking for.
I’m not trying to push you in the direction of redesigning your kitchen, but I have to point out that this cat food storage tin is just one item in the Leonardo Collection that it’s from.
Either way, as a stand-alone item or part of a collection, this is a cool storage tin for your kitties food. It measures 25cm x 18cm, so a decent size. Comes with a handy scoop too when dishing out the kibble.

Paw Prints Plastic Cat Food Storage Bin
It’s plastic, so it’s nice and light and durable. The lid has a hatch where the scoop is contained, and it’s carefully designed to have a flat back so you can store it against a wall.
Oh, and let’s not forget. The cool cat picture on the front means there is making no mistakes if you have a few similar food storage containers stacked up.

It’s hard to get excited about buying a cat food storage container, I know. Well, to be honest, I enjoy shopping so it was pretty fun putting this list of decorative cat food containers together.
Honestly though, having a storage container for your cat food is a good idea. It makes your life easier, and that’s reason enough to buy one in my opinion.
It makes handling the food easier, you can keep an eye on how much you have left, it’s more aesthetically pleasing, and the best part is your cats will become familiar with the noise and know when it’s feeding time.
As always, any feedback or questions are welcome. If you have a cool or interesting container you want to share feel free to do that too. Just drop me a note below, thanks.
