Food is one of the most important aspects of a cat’s life. Not only is it important to feed them with good quality food, using well made, but high-quality dishes is also important. Stay away from the cheap, plastic bowls if you can. Invest in good ceramic dishes such as these beautiful pieces from Vivipet. Their Mykanos Collection with the elevated handcrafted feeder includes two bowls for food and a side tray to grow some cat grass! The designs are created to blend in seamlessly with your home decor and the tilted design gives your furball a more comfortable position to have their dinner.
If there is one thing that cats have mastered, it is the art of lounging. So what’s better than a super cozy window perch to spend their time sleeping and bird watching? The Ultimate Cat Perch is designed to hold up to 80lbs and will provide a safe and secure spot for your kitty’s lounging needs.
