The 9 Best Elevated Cat Bowls for Easy Eating

Elevated cat bowls are designed to make mealtime an easy, comfortable experience for your four-legged friend—as it should be! With a raised cat bowl, your cat is able to eat and drink in a more natural position, and the raised positioning of the bowls may actually have health benefits for your kitty, too.

“An elevated cat bowl will help your cat eat better,” says Sara Ochoa, DVM at Senior Tail Waggers and Whitehouse Veterinary Hospital in Whitehouse, Texas. “Many elevated bowls are also tilted to make it easier for your cat to eat.” Cats with neck pain or senior cats with arthritis and joint pain could benefit from an elevated bowl as well, she says, because they won’t have the neck strain while bending over to eat.

Below, you’ll find nine veterinarian-recommended elevated cat bowls to help keep your kitty’s neck in check.
