Eating in Style

Disclosure:  This isn't a sponsored post, but there are some links to some favorite cat items we are sharing in the post.

We've told you stories about how Brulee has been a little hesitant eating her wet food around Truffle. We did try some of the whisker stress free bowls (Trendy Pet Whisker Free Pet Bowl and Dr. Catsby's Bowl for Whisker Relief) and were amazed and pleased at how much more Brulee felt comfortable enough to eat from the bowls where her whiskers weren't stressed and she could see Truffle coming.
Notice how Brulee is eating on the kitchen floor with her Trendy Pet bowl and on the carpet for her Dr. Catsy bowl.  





















Mom Paula still keeps our bowls about two feet apart and watches the first few minutes while we are eating to make sure Brulee is able to eat all she wanted before being bothered by Truffle.  Truffle isn't mean in any way, but when she wants food, she tends to push Brulee out of the way.  A few months ago when Mom Paula put the food on the normal place at the edge of the kitchen floor, Brulee walked past the food and went directly under the dining chair and just looked at Mom Paula. No matter what Mom Paula did, Brulee wouldn't come to the kitchen floor to eat.  Well, you guessed it, Mom Paula took the food to Brulee and Brulee began eating.  Brulee doesn't do this all the time, but Mom Paula knows if she wants Brulee to eat the wet food, she will put the food bowl where Brulee wants it.  This past weekend, Brulee decided it was time to eat under the dining room chair again.
Brulee eating in her preferred location out of her Dr. Catsby's bowl.

The photo above is Brulee eating out of her Dr. Catsby™ Bowl for Whisker Relief and Saturday night, Brulee ate out of her Trendy Pet dish.  We really do like both of these bowls and encourage everyone to try them out. Mom Paula was able to talk with the representatives from Dr. Catsby at the Global Pet Expo and asked if they had considered putting the bowl on a pedestal to make it a little easier to eat from.  They said they are thinking about it.   Mom Paula met the people from Trendy Pet where she saw the Whisker Free Stress Elevated Bowls at BlogPaws last year and was impressed with the plates on a pedestal.  Brulee is a pampered little kitty and she has Mom Paula wrapped around her little paws!  We don't know what gets into Brulee that makes her want to eat in this location, but whatever works is what Mom Paula is willing to do.  We think Brulee is channeling Sweet Praline's Diva lately.  Can you blame her for wanting to eat under these beautiful chairs?

  18. I never knew that kitties were so whisker sensitive when eating! I'm glad things are working out now - that's so important to provide a nice, calm, safe place to enjoy meal time.

  19. Brulee just might be the kind of cat who knows what each room is for and so the dining room is the perfect option for her meals. I feed my cat in his own sunroom so he can eat in peace. Theo our Puggle eats in the mudroom with a slow feeder so the other two dogs can finish their food before he barges over and tries to eat it.

  23. When we have visitors, we feed everyone in separate crates so there's no squabbling over food.

  25. Is there a difference between Brulee eating the wet vs. dry food with Truffle around? Very interesting!

  26. I am glad Brûlée is eating stress free now! My cat used to want me to sit with him when he ate. If I walked away he wouldn't eat all his food. I think he was afraid of the dogs coming to chase him away and steal his meal!
