Cats and Owners will benefit from features and additional points.
Benefit 1 : LOWER FRONT
At a mere 0.3 inches of depth, the low front edge of the bowl allows cats to easily access their food. No touching of the neck, chin, or whiskers.
Benefit 2 : WIDE ENTRY
Our designer examined the function of a circular bowl and realized that the front was unnecessary during feeding. The front of the CAT TONGUE® has been specially shaped in a straight line to welcome a cat for feeding.
Without any bowl parts in the way, a cat will no longer have to adjust its body position to a round bowl; it will predominantly stay in one place while feeding. Unlike a round bowl, a straight edge will allow more space to accommodate a cat’s neck at a comfortable distance to its food.
Benefit 3 : ENTRANCE SLOPE
An inviting entrance slope creates a natural passageway towards food.
Benefit 4 : POCKET
Pocket dimensions are designed to perfectly fit a cat’s face. The Pocket area is crafted to its specific size to avoid chasing food across a wide area and assist in easily picking up food. The patented design provides ample clearance for a cat’s chin, and the back wall of the pocket serves as the ideal slope for a cat to easily scoop his food, wet or dry. The slopes of the Pocket have been engineered to return all food to the center of the bowl, eliminating wasted head and neck movement.
Benefit 5 : BACK SLOPE
The Back Slope serves as a wall to stop food from moving, assisting a cat in easily picking up food using its tongue, without its nose touching the bowl. The perfectly angled slope aids a cat in consuming its food efficiently, with each scoop of its tongue.
As an option, food can be consumed in a clamping motion, planting the top tooth line to the bowl and scooping with the lower jaw. Again, the cat's nose will not touch the bowl.
Benefit 6 : 2ND TIER FRONT STAGE
Highlighted area declines inward toward the POCKET at 5 degrees, allowing any food or liquid to fall back into the POCKET.
Benefit 7 : 2ND TIER BACK STAGE
Any food not consumed in the POCKET will not fall outside of the bowl. Rather, food will fall on to the BACK STAGE.
Benefit 8 : 2ND TIER BACK WALL
The BACK WALL slopes in the ideal angle, making it easy to pick up food either by tongue or jaws. A cat's nose will not touch the sides of the bowl, which is a unique feature of our innovative design.
Benefit 9 & 10 : 3rd TIER & ELONGATED EDGE
A cat’s tongue produces power, causing food to move by momentum. The 3rd TIER catches any remaining food that is pushed upwards and serves as the final area to consume. An elongated rim, above the 3rd TIER, prevents food from falling over and out of the bowl.
Benefit 11 : BUMPS
Benefit 12 : MEASUREMENTS
1/4 and 1/8 cup measuring lines serve as a guideline for adequate food servings. Veterinarians recommend 1/4 cup as the average and ideal single serving amount, per meal, twice a day. For cats requiring more than 1/4 cup of food, please serve more food as they need.
Benefit 13 : WHISKERS DON'T TOUCH
The perfect width of the bowl (6.25 inches) prevents whiskers from touching the bowl or food. This creates a relaxed and ideal eating stance for a cat.
The CAT TONGUE® can be stacked when storing in your cabinet or cupboard. A stack of the CAT TONGUE®’s will only take a small footprint. *We recommend not stacking more than four, for safety purposes.
Easy to hold and carry.
The height of the base permits space for human fingers to fit, making it easy to hold the CAT TONGUE®. The thumb holds the edge of the bowl, and fingers fit perfectly under the base, creating a solid grip. Very reliable and convenient when transporting food, washing, or stacking away into your shelf.
Easy to clean and maintain.
Our custom glaze is formulated to create the ideal surface for hand washing. All food and stains will slide off the smooth surface of the CAT TONGUE® with ease.
The CAT TONGUE® sports a custom glaze, tough and able to withstand dishwashing with no problems. Our innovative design of the bowl allows normal perpendicular placement in your dishwasher, without taking up large amounts of space.
Serve water or milk.
The CAT TONGUE® can be used as a water bowl or to serve milk. The maximum capacity is 4 fluid ounces.
Difficult to flip over.
Master craftsmen create the CAT TONGUE® with extreme precision, resulting in a balanced, sturdy and rigid structure. Cats will find it difficult to flip over a solid 1 pound of ceramic weight.
Use a table or stand.
The CAT TONGUE® can be placed on a box or pedestal for added ease in posture. Use if height is needed for adequate eating; you can adjust the height according to your cat's preference. Whether on the floor or on a stand, our bowl works well for posture support and eating efficiency.
Eat lying down.
Thanks to the Lower Front, cats can eat while lying down. Highly recommended for handicapped, injured and elderly cats who can’t fully raise their torso. Lazy cats can also enjoy eating while lying down.
