Whisker Free Stress Dish Giveaway from Trendy Pet

We think many of you will agree that Persians are a beautiful breed of cat.  When owning a Persian, it's important to maintain their luxurious coat by daily grooming, which includes combing, working out mats, clipping nails, and cleaning their eyes.  There are two types of Persians based on their faces: doll-faced and flat-faced.  Truffle is a doll-faced Persian and Brulee has more of a flat-face.

Brulee has some difficulty eating from "regular" cat bowls because of her brachycephalic face. "Brachy" is a Greek work that means short and "cephalic" means head.  Most cats can eat from regular bowls because their heads and eyes are above the bowl when eating.  Persians like Brulee must put their entire face inside a bowl in order to eat, which also scrunches up their whiskers and and may result in Whisker Stress.  Whisker Stress is caused when a cat's sensitive whiskers touch the sides of the bowl.    Mom Paula struggles finding a good bowl that Brulee will eat out of that doesn't make a mess on the floor. There has been many a time when Mom Paula switches bowls/plate 2 or 3 times before she'd find one that Brulee would even eat from.  That is, until we found the Whisker Free Stress Dish from Trendy Pet.

Mom Paula was talking to Trendy Pet representatives at BlogPaws about the Whisker Free Stress Dish and wondered how it would work with Brulee's flat face.  The representative said it would be a wonderful pet plate for Persians, especially those with flatter faces and they agreed to send us a dish to review.  As soon as Mom Paula put the dish on the floor, Brulee walked right up to it and began eating.  Usually Mom Paula has to coax Brulee to the various cat plates to eat.

The Whisker Free Stress dish is a wide, shallow, ceramic dish that is designed to reduce whisker stress.  The plate can be placed on the floor or on an elevated platform to make it easier to eat.  The dish is dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe.  The Whisker Free Stress Dish is available in three colors:  white, black, and gray.   The dish is very stylish and would enhance any home decor.   The dish is hand made in Colorado and the feeders are made out of a water-proof, BPA free plastic material that has many benefits such as 
  • Water resistant
  • Superior weather ability
  • Easily cleaned
  • Rot Resistant
  • Resists Splitting
  • Will not delaminate like wood
  • Insect resistant (including termites)
  • Lead, cadmium, barium and zinc free
  • BPA free plastic
  • Uniform Color and Texture

Usually, Brulee leaves a lot of food in a regular cat bowl because of either the whisker stress or the fact she can't get to all of the food in the bowl.  When Mom Paula woke up the next morning after feeding Brulee from this dish, she saw that every morsel of food was gone and there was left-over food in the regular cat bowl!  The only problem with this dish is that we only have one.  Truffle also likes eating from the plate, but they don't like to share plates, so it looks like we're going to need to get a second dish.

  6. We have admired these bowls for a while. Carmine and Milita don't like regular cat bowls because they seem to be too deep for them. If we win, we'd like a white dish.

  12. Fabulous give-away! Cody actually prefers eating out of this type of a bowl (he doesn't like the small ones, maybe because his whiskers are so long)

    I would love to win a gray one to match him!
    Thanks for the opportunity!

    1. I can't believe how much better Brulee is eating from this dish! She actually wants to eat and cleans her plate. Hasn't happened in the four years I've had her.
