During the Lunar New Year, as a tradition most Chinese families will paste a sticker with the Chinese characters '常满' on the containers which they use to store their rice. '常满' means 'abundance' or the literal translation is 'always full'. Since rice is a staple part of the diet for Chinese, it is important that the rice container is never empty.

Borrowing this concept, I thought it is very important to ensure that the container used to store my kibbles is also kept filled to the brim, so I borrowed one of those stickers from mom and pasted it on my all-important food source. Hopefully my Year of Tiger is off to a roaring good start!

Good idea. Running out of kibbles is a bad emergency.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Great put the sticker on your food are so very wise. Madi becomes quite anxious when she hears her kibble scoop scrap the bottom of the container. I keep telling her there is more food I'm just not going to fill up the container until the old is all gone. Silly girl that Madi
