Does Your Cat Need an Elevated Cat Feeder?

Is your cat in need of an elevated bowl for food and water? Some older animals will benefit from this style of feeder when they have a harder time swallowing or chewing. Also, older animals have a variety of issues that they are uncomfortable with and a raised feeding bowl will relieve them of the challenges.

If you are looking for funky cat bowls -- elevated cat feeders, you will find a great selection of the best elevated cat bowls raised cat bowls here. You will also find my favorite designer cat bowls. You'll see a bit later more about Pepper (the hotel cat) and why an elevated cat feeder is such an important thing for her. I thought maybe others might like to find out what I could find and save them some time.

I spent awhile wondering what Pepper (the hotel cat) would need to solve a couple of problems we have been having. So I hope this page will help you t find an elevated cat feeder which will fit your décor style as well as please your cat.

Decorative elevated cat feeder with a remarkable pottery design (Signature) with a nice combination of blue, red, and golden tones.

This is so beautiful. I think cat owners would want to try out this elevated cat feeder even if they are not sure the cat would ever use it.

A raised feeder is a must for her so she will stop spilling her water. I think this one would be the best overall because it has two bowls (one for her food and one for her water) so she can get to everything easily but not spill it as often.

This is a great way to keep the food in the dish instead of on the floor. Pepper is a hotel cat. She has lived at this hotel for a long time. Some folks say she maybe over 20 years old. But, that is another story.

What I would like to share now is how Pepper likes to wrap herself around the water bowl. She may feel it is cooler there, or, some odd attachment to the bowl.

You might consider putting a small bowl (glass preferably) in this elevated cat feeder. This way you get the beauty of the stoneware, and your pet gets the safety of glass which can be washed in the dishwasher.

Now you might like to think more about decorating style in your home as well as having the perfect elevated cat feeder. If you like the stoneware design you are going to want to get two of these so you can put food in one and water in the other.

If you wonder about 'stoneware' in general as being a long term option for a pet feeder.

Having a raised dish with nested bowl would ensure she would have drinking water available. I would keep both so she can still play in water if she wants to but I wouldn't need to worry about her not having water to drink afterward.

I believe a double dish feeder is great to have both food and water at the same level. Or you can use it for multiple cats. An elevated double feeder like this one is going to have some qualities such as great for indoor or outdoor use. Materials with a suitability for outdoor use are perfect for cats. This type of material is going to last longer in the weather, in high humidity, and in general (even for indoor use).

If you have your pets food and water in the garage or side yard then a raised feeder is a must to ensure they are not spilled. See how the dished nest into the stand? I remember wishing we had one last summer when I watched Pepper literally wrap herself around the water dish and pour the water on her face. It was comical, yet, I was grateful I saw her do it so I could refill the dish. She started getting in the habit of tipping the bowl and then she would lay in the puddle.

Kids do similar things when it gets really hot outside...

If you need some extra 'storage' on the bottom of your elevated cat feeder this is a good idea.

I was thinking this might also be a place to store one of those ice packs (like the one you would put in a small ice chest or lunch box) you could use that in the summer to keep the food and water a bit cooler.

I would suggest using a good tight sealing zip lock type bag, to put the ice pack in, just in case it leaks or gets condensation as it thaws out.

Classy Cat Feeder - Elevated Cat Feeder

This is one of the durable styles yet it looks delicate. Read all of the great features! Also notice it comes in a variety of color choices. I like the eggshell white but there are some amazing colors as well.

The featured elevated cat feeder is an eggshell white stoneware pedestal feeder. I would think this would go with a variety of home décor styles including everything from country to minimalist, and traditional décor style as well.

Elegant, classy, and the most funky elevated cat feeder of on the list.

The material is designed for dry food or water. It can be washed in the dishwasher.

I love the durability features which is important for an outdoor piece. This will go on the balcony outside the second story dining area of the hotel.
