Cat Food Dish
A cat food dish is more than just a container for your cat's food or water. It can also be a fun way for you and your cat to express your personalities or a clever means to match or complement the décor of your home. Cat food dishes come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and can range in design from the simply utilitarian to the extravagantly elegant. Since a cat food dish is often a relatively inexpensive purchase, you may wish to add a little variety to your cat's environment by occasionally changing his cat food dish.
All cats need dishes for food and water. If you have several cats, depending on your situation and the personalities of your cats some of them may share cat food dishes. Some cats, however, prefer to have their own cat food dish and can become territorial when asked to share. If your cat shows signs of aggression around food, he should have his own pet bowl rather than one shared by other cats.
Where you place your cat food dish depends on your environment. Some cat owners like to have their cat food dishes near their own eating area, and feed the cat when the rest of the family eats. Others prefer to place the cat food dish in a somewhat unobtrusive location, where the cat can dine in private. It is important to put the cat food dish in the same place each day, so that your pet always knows where to find her food and water.
While a variety of materials may be used, cat food dishes are often made from plastic, ceramic or stainless steel, all of which are durable. A cat food dish should always be made from safe, non-toxic materials. Keep your cat food dish clean by washing frequently in hot, soapy water. Many cat food dishes are dishwasher safe, for easy cleaning.
Look for a cat food dish that suits you and your pets' styles. Be sure the cat food dish is large enough to hold a full feeding worth of food, but not so large that there will frequently be excess food left in the bowl. The water dish should be sufficient to hold more than enough water for the cats that will be using it and should be refilled with fresh water frequently.
A cat food dish can range from a simple plastic bowl for just a few dollars to a very elaborate bowl made from expensive materials. Whatever the style you choose, be sure your cat food dish holds quality cat food that provides your pet with optimum nutrition.
