Cats are not only finicky about their food, they can also be finicky about the bowls you put their food and water in. Some cats don’t like deep bowls because it bothers their whiskers. Even the type of material the bowl is made from can make a difference.
Stainless steel bowls are preferable to plastic because plastic bowls can trap bacteria. If you thought choosing a bowl for your cat was hard enough, just wait until you try living with a cat and dealing with everything else it needs as well. Then you’ll realize choosing a bowl for your cat is the least of your worries.
