Catmas Wishes - Eating Neatly and Resting Comfortably: Messy Cats™

Do you have a messy cat, especially when she eats? We definitely do. Truffle is usually pretty neat when she eats because she bites into her food, but Brulee picks up her food with her tongue and tends to push her food on the floor. We've used mats in the past, but sometimes Brulee won't get on the mat to eat her food. We've found something that works for us.


Truffle with the 2 in 1 Cuddler Cat/House and the Silicone Feeder and Can Covers from Messy Cats™





Messy Cats™ Silicone Feeder

Brulee is a messy little eater. Even when I find a bowl that doesn't bother her whiskers, she still licks her wet food onto the floor (usually the carpet). Once it gets on the floor, she rarely eats it. I've tried food mats, but she doesn't like stepping on it to get to her food. I was pleased to receive the Messy Cats Silicone Feeder to try out. The bowl insert is a stainless steel bowl that is wide enough to avoid whisker stress from her whiskers touching the bowl, but deep enough to keep the food inside the bowl. The stainless steel bowl inserts into a silicone base. This base helps prevent damage to your floors and holds the bowl in place. The silicone base is designed in a way to avoid further messes on the floor through a wide lip and raised edge border. 

The Silicone Feeder is made in a single-serve size or a double-serve size. The base is made from FDA approved food-grade silicone and is BPA and PVC free. The stainless steel bowl can be removed from the silicone base and hand-washed in warm water with mild soap or can be placed in the dishwasher (hand wash recommended).

In addition to the Silicone Feeder, we received some of the Messy Cats Universal Can Covers for unused can food.

We like these can covers because they are colorful and match the silicone bases of the feeders. The flexible silicone material of the covers makes this cover easy to open, clean, and store. The best thing is that you only need one lid to fit three different sizes - 2.5 to 3.3 in. diameter. I like using this for some of the prescription food Truffle eats. The cans are usually larger and Truffle doesn't eat a lot at one time.


2 in 1 Cuddler/Cat House

After eating, cats like to take a nap. Some cats like to rest in a bed, while others prefer resting away from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season in a cave-like environment. Messy Cats has a wonder new bed that can satisfy the needs of almost any cat! The 2 in 1 Cuddler/Cat House is a cat bed and house in one piece. The bed has bolstered sides when closed, which make it a comfortable bed for your cat. You can also open the bed and the bed becomes a cat house/cave with a hidey-hole when opened.

Truffle and Brulee don't really like cat beds. They prefer cuddling up in the top of their cat trees. However, Truffle appears to love sleeping inside a cave. The girls just investigated the bed closed, but as soon as I opened it, Truffle went right inside. The funny part is that Brulee went inside with her and settled down. The Cat House isn't really large enough for both of them, but they were so calm inside that they didn't fuss or fight. Brulee was exploring, but Truffle has claimed the house as her own. I can be searching for her and look down and see her sleeping inside the house.

  7. Oh we have a lot of those messy cats I tell you! Instead of biting chunks of food they do that annoying 'licky licky' thing with their tongues until they press down the food to the bottom of the bowl and then they look up at me as if to say, "see mom, my food disappeared, where's my food gone, oh wait, Charlie's looks more delicious than mine. let's try some of Charlie's."

    And then I have to keep fluffing it up with a spoon. These bowls look interesting, thanks for sharing!

  13. We have two cats. My senior girl, Moko, spends most of her time on her cat tree (she even has a litter box and her food available there - she doesn't get around much these days) and sleeps mostly in the little house on the cat tree. Kotoha started as a feral two week old kitten and for some time tended to sleep under the couch in the TV room. Lately, though, she's getting more social and likes to sleep closer to people (especially me). She has a bed in a box under the TV but I would love her to have something like this I could put close to where I am.

  24. My mom thinks I'm a messy eater, too. She says I scoot the kibbles and moist noms off my plate with my short nose when I'm eating. I don't think I'm near as messy as the doggie when she eats. She drops kibble bits on the floor and she leaves a trail of water from her jowels after drinking from her bowl. -Valentine (& Mom) of Noir Kitty Mews

  29. I've made nests for my two boys on my bed and they'll spend hours sleeping in them. The nests are a velux blanket on top of a self heating pad on top of a pillow. My elderly tripod kitty especially loves the nest, he gets so into it you have a hard time finding him:)
