Default Lids for Fancy Feast

Does anyone have a source for lids that fit Fancy Feast cans? My lids
are tearing and I can't find anything that works. Even the ones that
say they fit multiple size cans are too big for Fancy Feast.

I don't think there ARE any lids small enough for those single-serve
cans... I just wrap them in a bit of gladwrap and stick them in the
fridge if I have to save some. (or you could get a little 'snack
sized' plastic container and put the excess fancy feast in that...)

I got a small plastic lid that fit those perfectly at my local Petco
last year. I think they had two sizes, and this one is small - it has
a diameter smaller than a Pringles can lid.

I have some that I got at PetSmart several years ago. They were packaged
separately from the "multiple size" lids.

When Persia was still allowed to have Fancy Feast (before she went on a
prescription diet in 2004) I did exactly what you said; covered them with
plastic wrap and stored them in the fridge. They aren't really large cans
so how long could one possibly need to store them?

I either put it in a sandwich baggie or use a piece of aluminum foil.
I have never seen a suitable lid. MLB

PetFoodDirect shows two different types of lids. The smaller ones are
approximately 2 5/8" in diameter. I would guess that these would fit Fancy
Feast. They are called Flex-o-Lid Pet Food Can Covers. You can see them

Those little cans fit nicely inside a Ziploc sandwich bag. Then you
can zip the empty can inside the bag when you toss it out and no
stinky garbage can.

That's a very good idea- we don't have Fancy Feast here in the UK
through but it sounds to me that the cans must be the same as the "Hi
life" small ones, which my cats devour as if they haven't seen food
in years! (as opposed to their usual "not seen food for months"
routine at meal times) and I've always hated the fact they stink the
bin out, which is becoming a big consideration as in some parts of the
UK bins can only be put out on collection days and that is spreading
so if I feed "Hi Life" (I think that's what its called) then we have
the smell and as we have a small flat it then ends up stinking of cat
food unless I take the bin liner out (for the moment we don't have
times to put them out here) which kinda puts me off feeding them the
stuff (most of their wet food is pouches, which for some reason don't
seem to have the same effect) even through they love it and it's good
quality stuff

So maybe now I'll get it for them more often and use a Ziploc bag!

I use Wellness canned food, so there is no problem finding lids that fit.
However, I don't have any problem with odor from canned food because I rinse
the cans before I dispose of them. That uses very little water and solves
any problem with odor or attracting insects.
