    Squish it down in the can over the cat 'goodie' bowls. My cats know the sound of those cans opening. I get a 'snuggie fest' around my ankles, and a race to the cat perch.

    The can opener is their cue. They're waiting for their turn. They get the juice and the can when it's "mostly" empty. ;)

    I dump mine in a colander, rinse well with water as I don't like fishy smell or taste, and then squish excess water out by hand. I also rinse out my cans with water before I place them in the trash.

    mine too! It's gotten so bad that every time we get the can opener out, my cat comes running and watches me, even if it's not tuna! but we have a do dad for the little cans, but for larger cans, make sure you wipe off the top first then just press it down

    I squish the lid too, but the tuna lately is so fine, a lot gets out and down the drain - - hate to lose any, maybe the strainer is the better idea for me.

    I don't buy it in cans anymore. The pouches don't need draining....just cut open and use!! Yes, I know, the cat misses out, but he gets lots of other treats. ;)

    I just dump mine into the strainer, a half hour or so before using it and just let it sit there and drain. It's not rocket science!! LOL

    Have you tried one of those 'mesh sink strainers'?

    It might work
