Common Problems with Other Bowls
See what happens when cat food is served in these bowls:
Dry Kibble or Wet Canned foods move and roll across a flat and wide bowl. Often, cats will eat only the food in the middle and leave the sides.
Cats have to chase Dry Kibble and eventually become very tired & frustrated from the extra labor, especially Senior cats and messy eaters. Chasing food causes excessive head movement, which discourages cats’ appetites.
Food becomes wet with saliva when the eating process takes long. Cats dislike their food drenched in their own saliva. Owners will leave Dry Kibble in wide or deep bowls, hours at a time, for their cats to eat at their own pleasure. Humidity, saliva, and dust will eventually spoil the leftover food after an extended amount of time, further decreasing interest in finishing their food.
Sharp angles and corners will trap Wet Canned food. This makes it difficult for cats to catch any remaining food. They will constantly lick the trapped food until it becomes brittle, and eventually, lose interest in eating, hungry or not.
Bowls with round bottoms make it difficult for cats to pick up their food. Especially, Dry Kibble will roll up, down and around the bowl, making it a chore to eat.
When a bowl is too small, food will touch their chins, a major cause of Feline Acne. Cats dislike their whiskers from touching the sides of the bowl, which cause discomfort and pain.
