The most important thing to consider is ensuring that your cat has access to water at all times. They should drink the equivalent to 200-300mls per day. This will depend on how much wet food vs. dry food they eat, but it is very important to have fresh clean water available for your cat at all times.
Cat water fountains
There are cat water fountains that circulate water through a filter and provide running water for your cat. Some cats prefer running water and it will encourage them to drink more. Check out our range of water fountains to provide your cat with free flowing water.
Stainless steel cat bowls
Stainless Steel cat bowls are a great way to go as they can be cleaned easily. The best stainless steel bowls have rubber slip substance on the bottom to stop the bowl from sliding around the place. This is great for cats that love to push their bowl around. Most stainless steel bowls can be put in the dishwasher as well.
Ceramic cat bowls
Ceramic cat bowls are also a great option as they are heavier and harder to move around the floor or knock over. Most ceramic bowls can also be put in the dishwasher.
Plastic cat bowls
Plastic cat bowls are also a great option. They are cheap, durable and come in a wide range of colors and designs.
Double feeder cat bowls
Double cat bowls are a great way to have both the water and food kept together.
Keeping them clean to ensure no bacteria
Keeping your cats feeding accessories clean is really important, especially if you are feeding wet food. The bowls should be washed after each feed to maintain good hygiene.
A good thing to consider is putting the cat bowl where other family members can’t get access to it. Family dogs and kids can sometimes put pets off of their food. So make a plan on where to keep the bowl.
To help with the cleanliness factor, having a cat food mat under the food bowl can help to keep things clean.
