Thanks to My Lovely Feline for sending me these Ceramic Slow Feeders. As always, all opinions are my own.
It’s no secret, if you’ve followed the blog for awhile, that our four cats are additional family members to us and we love them dearly! Recently we noticed that a couple of our cats are getting rather plump and we want to correct that before it becomes a big problem. We typically feed all of the cats together and they share a couple of bowls, but we’ve realized that isn’t ideal. When I heard about My Lovely Feline’s Ceramic Slow Feeders, I thought they sounded like a great option for us!
The design of these Ceramic Slow Feeders is really unique. The bumps in the feeder prevent cats from gobbling down there food and helps them eat slower. We have issues with a couple of our cats basically inhaling food and then vomiting just minutes later; this feeder helps to mitigate that issue. Fast eating can also cause weight gain because cats don’t take the time to get ‘full’ feeling (just like humans!) so that’s another benefit to using the Ceramic Slow Feeder.
Cats can have serious issues when they become overweight (diabetes, heart disease, arthritis) so we want to do our best to keep our cats at a healthy weight (and a couple of them could afford to lose some already). Being indoor cats, they don’t get as much exercise as outdoor felines, and being spayed and neutered makes them a bit more docile. If adding this ceramic feeder to their daily lives will help, I’m all for it!
I’ve always wondered why our cats won’t eat the food at the bottom of the dish, but I found out it’s because they hate their whiskers getting irritated by the bowl edges. Who know that cats’ whisker roots were loaded with blood vessels and nerves? Not me! This feeder is flat which eliminates that problem.
The Ceramic Slow Feeder also gives cats some mental and physical stimulation as they have to work for each piece of kibble. They can’t just simply go in and gorge themselves. As you can tell, our cats are really loving their new feeders and I’m excited about the health benefits that will come along with using them. We use a variety of other products from My Lovely Feline as well! Check out my previous blog post to see what else they have to offer.
