Did you know that most cats hate when their whiskers are being pressed closer to their face? Often times, feeding bowls found at pet shops are actually too small for cats. When it comes to the size you have to measure the length of your cat’s whiskers from tip to tip, left to right. The length will vary with age, weight, and breed. Generally, you don’t want to use a bowl that is less than 5 inches wide unless it is very shallow. When a bowl is not big enough, it can actually make your cat uncomfortable while eating and cause them to eat faster. This makes it more likely that they will be leaving you a lovely surprise to step in not too long after they have finished.
