If you’ve visited a pet store lately, you may have noticed that canned cat food is in short supply. That’s because cat food uses meat and with supply chains still fouled up due to COVID-19, life still hasn’t gotten back to normal.

Not only is meat in short supply, but so is aluminum used in cans used to hold cat food. So if you have a cat that enjoys canned food, make sure you shop for it long before you start to run low. That way you can ensure your cat will always have the food it wants, even if you have to go hungry.
