One of the most important parts of owning a cat (or any pet for that matter) is feeding it. After doing your research and determining what the best diet for your cat is, you need the right bowls and feeding station to feed your cat with.
SparkWorks has made a great feeding station that delivers a lot of benefits for you and your cat. Let’s take a look at some of the features below.
There are a lot of great features in the design of this feeding station. For starters, the elegant stand is tall enough to allow medium to large cats to eat comfortably. For kittens, you’ll want something much smaller.
The rim around the dish is raised slightly which prevents water and food from spilling over the sides while you’re carrying it and while your cat is eating.
Plus, it’s a wider rim bowl so that your cat’s whiskers won’t be affected. Whiskers are extremely sensitive so if they are getting bent back by a dish’s rim, it can cause some discomfort.
The bowls are also large and deep so you can provide enough food and water for your cats without having to refill. The double dish design can either be for food and water or to feed two cats at the same time.
Finally, the stoneware dish has a natural glaze that prevents it from absorbing bacteria and moisture and makes it super easy to clean. This means no mold and no bacteria buildup to harm your cat. They’re also dishwasher and microwave safe!
The key drawbacks include the price and the breakability factor. The price isn’t actually outrageous but you can definitely find much, much cheaper dishes out there. The cheap ones are made of low quality plastics or metals but they are more affordable.
Secondly, although these are very solid and well built, stoneware can break if you drop it. A cheap plastic or metal dish is not going to shatter if you drop it. So if you get this feeding station, you should take a little extra care when carrying the dishes.
Basically, this is a very high quality feeding station. We love the beautiful stoneware dishes and the elegant stand. Since your cat’s dishes will probably stay out in view most of the time, it’s nice to have something that is also a little decorative.
But it’s not just about looks, the large bowl size, the anti-spillage rim, the coated stoneware that prevents bacteria buildup and all of the other features make this a great set to feed your cat without the mess or the risk of infection.
The set is a little pricier than your average feeding dishes but they are very well made. And you’ll need to take some extra care not to break it but if you’re willing to deal with these drawbacks, you are definitely getting your money’s worth.
