Dry kibble is also the most convenient type of cat food when it comes to storage and cleaning. Unlike with canned cat food, there's no need to make space for dry kibble in the refrigerator or clean the feeding area every time your cat eats. In fact, some types of dry cat food have been specially designed to clean your cat's teeth and promote oral health.
