In the wild, cats like to have a clear view of their surroundings in order to detect the approach of rivals or predators. This means that where you place your cat’s dish plays an important role in her level of comfort at feeding time.
Tip 1: Placing a cat's dish in the corner of a room may put her both on edge and on guard because she can't see what's around her. This is especially true in homes with multiple cats or a dog.
Tip 2: To lessen the tension, try positioning her dish in the open to maximize her sight lines.
Feeding your cat should be a positive experience for you and for her. Hopefully these tips will help you find just the right place for your cat’s dish.
