What kind of bowls do you use for food and water? - Page 2

post #31 of 44
Humor me here.........how does one know the difference between ceramic, earthenware, stoneware, etc. when buying if it does not blatantly state it?

I bought some stainless steal plates from Ikea, they work great for my cats, they are not too shallow, almost like a really shallow bowl.

I like stainless steal because I feed raw, steal is not porous so it washes cleaner and I have no worries about using bleach or anything I choose to clean it.
I also like stainless steal due to that reason it helps ward off feline acne (for example on a plastic bowl, it's porous so the surface is never cleaned as well, causing build up) which can lead to acne on the chin.

I try to use plates rather then bowls or at least very shallow bowls because some cats are more apt to eat all of their meal if their whiskers are not touch the sides of the bowl while eating. That bothers some...

Question... Those very heavy plastic pet bowls, are those bad too? God I love those! I bet you could literally run them over with the car and they probably still wouldn't break! I think it's Van Ness brand, and they are way thick, oanyone have issure with those? Think they are cleaner than the regular plastic ones?

Stainless steel and ceramic bowls for canned and kibble. Plastic water fountains that are cleaned & scrubbed daily.

It's a local woman -- lives maybe a half hour's drive from us. I'm delighted to see her on the Internet. She deserves the recognition and the business.

My MIL gave one of these to Shasta (the old lady) for Christmas one year, which has passed down to Nibs, and then to Suzy. We got them for Cindy and Fawn for their first Christmas.

For my kitties I have ceramic oblong bowls. They are an off-white color with a blue outline on the outer border and a blue pawprint in the middle. They are very shallow and easy for my kittens to use. I love them! They're so cute!

They have stainless steel bowls for their dry and a water fountain for their water and a water cup since they prefer a cup to a bowl in the bedroom. Little weirdos. lol
