Catmas Wishes - Stylish and Functional Dining

There are so many bowls to choose from for our feline friends. There are bowls of bright colors and designs, elevated bowls, whisker stress free bowls, and bowls that are made of plastic, glass, ceramic, and stainless steel. How does the modern cat owner choose the best bowl for her fabulous feline?





We've tried almost type of every bowl out there and prefer stainless steel that has a wider rim to help us avoid whisker stress. 


Many of the stainless steel bowls we've tried are either too deep or big for the small amount of food we eat. Brulee tends to eat her wet food by picking it up with her tongue, so she makes a mess if a bowl is too flat with no rim or if the bowl is too narrow and her whiskers touch the side. We also love our pet fountains, but Mom Paula has resorted to fountains made of ceramic or stainless steel to keep us from developing feline acne on our chins from bacteria that can develop with plastic bowls or fountains.


Brulee presents the Catit® Stainless Steel drinking fountain and feeding dish

We love Catit® products and have reviewed them on our blog in the past. We're excited to feature more Catit products this holiday season. The fountain and feeding dishes we received for our Catmas Wishes holiday series met with our expectations for quality and functionality that we've come to expect from Catit. 


Catit® Stainless Steel Drinking Fountain

Truffle was ready to open her Catit® Stainless Steel Drinking Fountain

The new and improved, high-grade, Stainless Steel Drinking Fountain is hygienic and dishwasher safe. The difference for us with this fountain is the fact that the stainless steel top is clean and shallow so we can drink from the bowl without putting any stress on our whickers. We are Persian Cats and we do have flatter faces, so the shallow design is important for us because we don't like getting our face wet! 



It is so important to find ways to encourage cats to drink water! Truffle had surgery this past Spring to remove bladder stones. The vet continues to stress the importance of Truffle drinking plenty of water to keep her urine from being dense and providing an environment for stones to develop. The design of this fountain is very stylish and can blend into any home interior! The fountain is very easy to assemble and is quiet! Truffle and Brulee are more accustomed to drinking from a stream of water, so they were a little apprehensive at first about the fountain. There is movement of water, so it should attract most cats.

We also received the Catit Flower Placemat that can be used beneath the fountain to help with possible water spills. This anti-slip mat is made of food grade silicone and is the right size for the fountain and/or bowls.


Catit® Feeding Dishes

The Catit Feeding Dishes are available as a single dish or a double dish and are available in black and white. We chose the single dishes to review because we don't like eating close together. These dishes are made up of two pieces: a shallow stainless steel bowl and a holder. The stainless steel dish has a shallow design to help avoid whisker stress, which can cause your cat to not want to eat because her whiskers touch the sides of the bowl. The stainless steel dish can be removed from the holder for easy cleaning and is dishwasher safe. The holder is durable and has non-skid feet.

Neither of the girls hesitated when their food was presented in these bowls. I was pleased Brulee was comfortable eating her food from the dish and she didn't even lick the food out of the bowl onto the carpet!

You can order these products directly from the Catit website. The Stainless Steel Drinking Fountain is currently on sale for $34.99. The Single Catit Feeding Dishes are $5.99 and you can purchase the Double Feeding Dish at the sale price of $7.99. The Catit Flower Placemat is $7.99. We're sure your cat will love the design of the fountain and dishes and you'll appreciate the easiness cleaning the products and their modern design.

  1. These bowls look awesome, and I bet the fountain would be more comfortable for older cats too.

  2. The bowls look great. I need to invest in a couple of new non-slip bowls as Laser's bowl often ends up under the shelves I have. Not that she has any problem getting it back out again, but she'd probably prefer her food bowl not to wander off while she's eating.

  3. I love catit, I want one of everything they make! I would seriously love to win this, though I fear for fountains here - if they are easy enough for me to assemble they are usually easy enough for Midnight to disassemble lol

  6. My cats eat out of the ceramic bowls that the humans use. Lol. They work for them. We've tried a few different things, but always go back to our bowls. I know my cats would loooove the fountain, though!

  8. Buckwheat has plastic dishes, a shallow flat one for his food and then water bowls around the house. His main thing is that he wont drink water if the dish is near his main feeding area. He also likes to dip his paw in the water and then lick it dry. This looks like a great giveaway!

  15. That's great. Our fountain quit workin' a little bit ago and mommy hasn't had a chance to replace it yet. This would be pawsum. We use ceramic or stainless steel or china to avoid acne as well. Big hugs

  18. i dont have any cats, so i would be donating to safe haven for cats. i do have some cat bowls, the metal, with a slight dip. they were good for my oldest dog when she was very elderly, had dementia and could not see very well.

  19. I've tried various types of bowls for my cats over the years. My senior girl, Moko, has started pretty much living on her cat tree since she started getting medical issues. In order to give her access to her food and keep the dogs from it, I put it on the top part of the tower in the only bowl I found would fit and still give her room to sit and eat there. My other cat, Kotoha, is using a bowl I don't really like and would love a set like this. I have the perfect spot in the kitchen for the fountain and bowls for her should I win!

  29. The white Persian kitty Mom had for many years would get acne on his chin from time to time from the oils in his kibbles. But switching to stainless bowls made his acne go away. I have ceramic bowls, but furr-tunately I don't get the acne issues. Winks.
