Classy Cat Dishes might sound familiar to you because we featured the 5″ Classy Cat Dishes back in May.  Now it’s time to feature the larger ones!

Classy Cat Dishes was born in 1992 when Designer Larraine’s vet suggested raising her cat’s dish to prevent her cat’s chronic vomiting of meals.  And so Larraine ended up making a pedestal dish as a result!

6" Classy Cat Dishes

6″ Classy Cat Dishes

They are one piece raised dishes which makes them stable.  Also, the pedestal weighs more than the dish, therefore they will not tip or slide.  It is made of stoneware.  The pedestal dish helps keep dust, hair and ants out of the bowl – this is especially important if you feed your kitty outside or in an enclosed porch.

They will not absorb food odors or harbor bacteria as plastic does (helping to prevent chin acne and mouth ulcers).  They are also easy to pick up and wash.

6″ diameter dish STATS:

  • Created specifically for wet or fresh food
  • Height: 5 1/4″
  • Diameter: 6″
  • Depth: 1″
  • Average Weight: 1 lb 11 oz
  • Capacity: 1 cup
  • dishwasher safe
  • microwave safe

They come in the following colors:

  • Pink
  • Teal
  • Eggshell
  • Blue
  • Grey
  • Black

Honestly, I didn’t think it mattered if the bowl was 5″ or 6″ – the cats certainly didn’t know the difference, and neither did I really!  I actually preferred the tighter bowl (the 5″) for the wet food because the less surface area helped to keep the food moist.

These designer pet bowls have glazes that are lead free.  The colors are airbrushed to give dishes a light shaded appearance.

Pedestal dishes raise the food to a comfortable level for cats/pets and they’re helpful to the older or arthritic cats and dogs that find it very painful to stoop down to floor level to eat. Raised dishes also help prevent vomiting that is often caused by a reflex muscle in the throat that reacts when a pet lifts their head after eating from a level below their stomach.  An empty stomach can also cause vomiting because of acid build up.

What’s your favorite thing about the 6″ Classy Cat Dishes?

    These are the only dishes we use! I have four of them – three of the 6 inch and one of the 5 inch, all in the teal green color. I love that the boys eat out of raised dishes – I think it’s healthier for them. And the lip of the dish really does keep the food in the dish. I like the 5 inch one for water – and the others are for wet food.

    They are kind of expensive, but well worth the investment. I got mine at Amazon with free shipping.

    This is a much more elegant solution to the problem than what I’ve always done (turning a metal bowl upside down, and putting a ceramic bowl with very small legs on top of that). I’ll definitely be looking into getting my big baby a few of these! 🙂

    These are very elegent looking but I have had five different repetitive stress surgeries and my grip strength just isn’t what it used to be. So, I’ve gotta ask, how much would you say these bowls weigh? -bj
