What you serve your cat’s food on might not seem to matter, but it can actually make a big difference for your cat. We don’t worry about whiskers when we eat, but for a cat, a dish that interferes with whiskers can make eating less pleasant. We’ll give you a better idea of what your cat might like in a feeding dish.
Tip 1: Use a shallow bowl that a cat can grab food from without impeding her whiskers. A bowl that’s too deep may be uncomfortable for her.
Tip 2: Choose a dish large enough to hold a day's worth of food, with a lip just tall enough to keep the food contained while letting her easily observe the room. Cat’s like to be aware of their surroundings while they eat.
Tip 3: If you constantly find yourself cleaning up after your cat, consider a wide plate large enough to catch stray kibble or canned food.
Hopefully these tips will help you feed your cat in a way that’s as pleasant as possible for her.
