Do you have a slow eater who prefers to eat her meal over a period of several hours rather than inhale it all at once? Would you like to be able to leave canned food out for your cats while you’re not home? With the new Sealed Pet Bowl from SureFeed, you can.

PawNosh  glass pet bowls look more like a piece of art than a utilitarian food or water bowl. These gorgeous bowls are made from 100% recycled glass.

Review: PawNosh Glass Pet Bowls

Buying a food or water bowl for your cat isn’t just a matter of finding the cutest pattern or color. What’s much more important than looks is the material the bowl is made out of, and the size.

Plastic bowls may contain BPA’s, and they can also harbor bacteria once they start getting scratched. Feline acne, which manifests in small, oily black bumps on the cat’s chin, very similar to blackheads in humans, is believed to be a reaction to plastic food bowls.

The best materials for cat bowls are glass, stainless steel, or ceramic.Continue Reading
