As we approach the end of our kitchen remodel we realize we no longer have a spot for the kitty dishes. It makes sense to put them on the far side of the refrigerator, but the flooring there is wood, and Kitty is a messy guy. Enter the Neater Feeder.
This little dish is designed to keep the food and water mess contained, and it does just that. I was really impressed when I opened the box to find two sets of different sized bowls and a set of legs to raise the entire surface. This makes it really flexible for different animals. I did not attach the legs, but if the "lampshade" ever makes another appearance at the house they will be invaluable. Kitty often pushes food out of his bowl and we humans have been known to accidentally kick his water dish. Now the stray food stays on the tray and the spilled water drips into the rimmed dish below. Once a week the entire thing gets a run through the dishwasher. It is even made in the US!
The ony drawback for us is that it only has two bowls. We do wet food, dry food, and water. I have been swapping out the bowls between wet and dry food and that works most of the time, in a perfect world there would be an option for three bowls. But I am so happy to not be mopping up water or scrapping dried tuna bits off the floor that having just two bowls is not a deal breaker.
Kitty is pretty happy too.
