I used to change Puff's food every night before she'd eat so that it was never out for more than 24 hours, but with my work schedule I've been finding that she's already eaten by the time I am able to change her food. I always have more than she eats in a night in the dish for such circumstances but I was wondering if I could start feeding her more and leave the dish out until she finishs most of it. Is it okay to leave the same food for 48 hours or maybe even a little longer or is that too long? Otherwise, I find if I change it she doesn't finish all the "not so tasty" healthy food, which she leaves to last. :lol:

Thanks everyone, yea I think I will just keep changing every night, wouldn't want it to go stale. I count kibble too, that's why it takes me so long to change it because I'm always changing how much I put of each to make sure she gets enough healthy kibble and enough "junk" food too. What kind of scale does everyone use to weigh?

Thanks everyone!
I'm hopefully gonna get a digital scale soon, especially since my mom wasn't so keen on me using the one she has in the kitchen right now :lol:
I really like the idea of putting the food in little plastic baggies, thanks for the advice lilysmommy!

Walmart sells a scale that weighs in grams that's where i got mine i think it was $25 or so.
Comes with a tray the hedgie can fit in.

EDIT
I looked on walmart.com and they dont sell the one like i have anymore.
They have one that does weigh in grams and does have tray to sit hedgie in and it has the Tare feature for less than $20 tax and all.
