In 2018, 89 percent of 500 U.S. cat owners surveyed by the American Pet Products Association (APPA) purchased some sort of water and/or food bowl for their cat, according to the organization’s 2019-2020 National Pet Owners Survey. And out of 444 surveyed cat owners, 44 percent have bowls made of plastic, 35 percent with bowls made of stainless steel and 31 percent with bowls made of ceramic. Additionally, nearly one-quarter of all cat owners who buy bowls take into account the price, the height of the bowl and whether it is dishwasher safe, non-spill and non-slip.
There is no doubt that quality matters to cat owners when it comes to what their feline friends eat and drink from. And the trends don’t stop there. Features like environment-friendly, BPO-free and non-toxic are also at the forefront of consumers’ minds, especially the younger generation cat owners. The days of a basic bowl are gone, as consumers want only the best for their felines. That’s why it’s important to be aware of exactly what cat owners want for their cats and have those products readily available for them.
These bowl products feature a spectrum of materials and colors, and each one has its own set of unique features. No tipping, disposable, durable, hygienic are just some of the features these bowls have to offer. Some are even designed to reduce whisker sensitivity and stress. A wide selection of products like these that cater to the needs of cats and their owners is beneficial in knowing the most up-to-date trends and features that matter most to them, allowing you to continuously provide them with quality service and maintain a bond that lasts for years to come.
