Kitties are so particular about their food bowls. They seem to dislike having their whiskers brush against the sides of the bowl which means it needs to be wide open at the top. When a bowl is wide open, it is easier for them to push the food over the edge and all over the floor.
Our two cats also don’t like a bowl that is deep. If Elliott can’t see over the rim while he’s eating, he knocks the bowl around or just won’t eat down to the bottom. There’s little more aggravating than a bored cat annoyed that he can’t comfortably eat his way to the bottom of the bowl.
I was looking for a bowl with a wide, heavy bottom that was difficult to knock over but that they enjoy eating and drinking from. So I made them and soon they’ll be available for you, too! The food bowl is low slung and easy to eat from. The water dish a bit taller and difficult to tip. It’s a win win in our house.
Do you have cats? Are they finnicky about the bowls their food is served in, or have any odd little eating quirks?
Happy St. Patty’s day ☘️
Do you guys have any Saint Patrick’s Day traditions in your family? However you celebrate, we hope it involves feasting around the table. And maybe a pint of Guinness 😉🍺
We crafted this x-base table awhile back out of heart pine reclaimed from an old church.
Working on the first phase of cad for a wireless mouse. I made this quick model to explore some new construction techniques. I only spent five minutes rendering it out to get a quick idea of what the model looks like. The whole design still needs work but it’s fun to start really designing in 3-D after the initial sketching and rendering. #industrialdesign#productdesign
