Our New Cat Bowls


As mentioned in a previous post, my wife broke one of our cat bowls. The new bowls I bought didn’t fit in the stand and turning the stand upside down was not the genius move I thought it was because the bowls slid off too easy.

I looked through the bowls on Amazon and found a two-bowl set that looked like a great replacement. (Keep in mind that the above link is an affiliate link so if you make a purchase I will finally be able to buy that beach house in Hawaii that I always wanted.)

The bowls look similar to Floki’s bowl.

Floki has his own bowl but it really is every cat for himself. I sometimes put Floki’s bowl on the table so Chris won’t make a pig out of himself and eat all the dry food. I have to stop doing that, though, because it annoys my wife.

As soon as I put food in the new bowls, Frankie and Chris were there eating it. I want to say they liked their new bowls but I’m sure if I put food in a garbage can lid it wouldn’t matter.

The new bowls have a tilt to them. I wasn’t sure what the tilt was for until I read the description: “Tilt Angle Design – Keeps food piled nicely or falls to the center, prevent cat food from pushing off the bowl and keep the eating environment clean.” I’m sure this was written by someone who has been studying English for well over a week. In any case, I got the idea. It is designed to keep food in the center and it seems to work. Check out the difference between Floki’s bowl and the two tilted ones after the cats were done eating.

I don’t know how this would work for wet food. I have a different set of bowls for their wet food.

These bowls are good in some ways because they are wide and shallow, which cats like, and there is a silicone outer layer to catch dropped food. The main problem with them is the food tends to get pushed against the edge where it is harder to eat. There is always food left behind so I collect the bowls and then combine the food into the center of one of them. Usually, Frankie will come back later to finish it.

So what do you think? Does anyone else have tilted bowls?

    Teddy’s bowl is raised but not tilted. He likes very “wet” wet food so I mix water in with it and there’s no food left on the sides or anywhere – it’s all in his tummy. Those are nice looking bowls though!

      Mixing water is a good idea. Actually, I think I have a container of Stella and chewy’s bone broth that I got as a sample. I should try that.

    Both sets of bowls are cool. Mom really likes the one with the silicone mat. Mom already told you about our dry food bowls. For our wet food we use Corelle brand white bowls from Walmart. Hope the new bowls continue to work for you all. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, angel Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet

    these are attractive and clever! Roary is ALWAYS dropping his dry food on the placemat and it drives me insane. I may have to look into these (If I buy them I want to be able to visit that beach house in Hawaii lol)

      Just bought the white and black set which was less than the set you bought, AND I had $10.30 in Amazon rewards so I only had to spend $13.01 for the two bowls. Can’t beat that!!!!! Thanks for posting! Hoping it will prevent Roary from dropping his food all over the place next to his bowl.
