Ceramic Hand Painted Cat Bowl - this light blue ceramic bowl is purr-fect to display your favorite trinkets.
Since then I’ve had a few different ceramic cat dishes to help keep Ernie’s acne at bay. The lastest I came up with after browsing the Internet and then browsing Dollarama. They’re a contemporary looking food dish for either cats or dogs that keeps the food raised up off the floor.
So off we went to the vet. Sure enough she gave Ernie the cat version of ProActive (although Ernie’s stuff actually worked) and a course of antibiotics. The vet also told me cats should never eat out of plastic food dishes because they harbour bacteria. Sheeshhhh … what do you think I am??? An idiot? Of course I use um … what should I use? Stainless or ceramic!! Yes, of course, that’s exactly what I use allll the time.

There are endless choices of cat food dishes and bowls these days. From cute kitty ceramics costing under $10.00 to designer raised-platform deluxe models costing upwards of $200.00. What’s right for your cat will depend on your cat and not your taste. Cats don’t care about cute kitty designs but all cats know what they like. Over many years of experience, I’ve discovered the best way to find out (without breaking your budget) is go to your local thrift shop. Buy a selection of sizes and materials and let your cat decide. They usually cost well under a dollar. The selection of bowls (pictured above) are our favorites, all from a local thrift shop. Plus, recycling leaves a low carbon footprint.Stainless steel is unbreakable, sturdy, dishwasher-safe, and harmless to cats. It (along with ceramic bowls) is recommended by most veterinarians. Another good choice is ceramic, provided it uses a lead-free glaze. (Most do, nowadays.)Material is key: Choose unbreakable and dishwasher safe. Stainless steel is a popular choice but our guys don’t like them. Two of their favorite water bowls are large Pyrex glass bowls. They’re sturdy and as safe or safer than ceramic. If a ceramic bowl gets chipped throw it out or re-purpose it (i.e. saucer under a plant).I do keep a decorative glass water bowl on the dining room table for Gris Gris (it’s his favorite) but only you can decide whether to take that kind of risk. The only material I don’t recommend is plastic. It’s okay for travel but for every day use, they will eventually abrade, get scratched allowing bacteria to grow. Some plastic tends to smell funky which turns off some cats.Your lovely pet deserves to be spoiled too in different ways and serving them water from this amazing Petsafe Drinkwell Ceramic fountain bowl is definitely one of them! The bowl has two falling streams of water that will make your cats happy and encourage them into drinking more water every time thus reducing kidney and urinary diseases.
