How to Choose the Best Bowl for Your Cat

There are plenty of cat bowls to choose from and this can make it hard to pick the right one for your cat or kitten. So let’s try to make the process simpler!

SizeCat food bowls need to be size and age appropriate: A kitten will require a small, shallow cat bowl that holds enough cat food for one meal. Adult cats require a larger, slightly deeper cat bowl. The cat feeding dish should be large enough to ensure the cat's whiskers do not touch the side of the bowl when feeding. 
Cat bowls also need to be cat and cat breed appropriate. For example, flat faced cats need flatter bowls and large breed cats need wider bowls.

Types and Materials:

Bowls: Depending on how you feed your cat, you may consider a few bowls; one for water; one for dry food and; one for wet food. Heavy ceramic or steel bowls are ideal for dry food, wet food and water. These bowls should have some weight and a rubber bottom to avoid tipping or sliding movements. The ideal bowl should also be easy to clean and dishwasher safe. Twin feeder bowls combine both water and food in the one convenient dish.

Automatic Feeders: Cat Food Feeders are a fantastic way of feeding your feline if you need to be out and about during the day. The ideal dry food feeder is tip resistant, dishwasher safe, easy to clean and seals in the freshness of the food. The heavy plastic varieties work well.
