Ummm, ...?The only concern I have is that the Newcor plates say 1992 made in China. Is that safe? Did China use safe glazes back in 1992?
Love the butter dish ideaThe Correlle dessert bowl worked well but the cat still seemed to experienced issues with whisker stress. As I shop often at the myriad thrift stores in my area I've kept my eyes open for alternative. The kibble dish is glass whose original purpose is unknown. The clean canned wet food dish is what I believe to be a glass butter dish. Both work excellently and are great for the cat. He can use the butter dish with shredded wet food (Weruva/Fussie Cat shredded chicken) without needing to lift it and drop it away from the dish. The dish containing the dry food is for the Orijen Regional Red he loves. These are shown on my mouse pad for visibility as the counter top isn't conducive to visibility in picture form.
I believe some fish oils eat through styrofoam.Wet food goes on styrofoam small 6 inch plates and get thrown away when done. Dry food is in stainless steel pet bowls. Water is placed in several spots around the house (they like to 'find' them) in stainless steel or pretty ceramic bowls I got on sale. The only thing taht is taboo is plastic, harbors too many germs and causes acne.
Hi, I like to use au gratin dishes I found at goodwill, they seem to like themHello, everyone. I am curious about what y'all use as a dish or bowl to put food on when feeding your cat(s). It seems material is really emphasized and shape/size/depth aren't given as much attention. I've found that with particular foods these factors play an important role in my cat's eating behavior. The dish that works best for wet food that is shredded simply will not work with dry food in the form of kibble. I have encountered situations where he (the cat) appears to not like a food but it seems that it is just simply difficult for him to eat it. Does anyone else have this issue or is it all in my head? I've taken into account whisker stress but often it seems like the food is just difficult for him to pick up.
On a side note: Food dishes and bowls are expensive at pets stores and even online. In my area there are a lot of thrift stores with all sorts of containers that can be used for cat food. What their original purpose was is beyond me. Stainless steel, ceramic, glass, crystal, and even silver items are available. This may be a factor as to why I obsess over food dishes and bowls so much.
