Post is written by Kim, one of the winners of the BONUS! October 2020 Giveaway: FUKUMARU Elevated Cat Ceramic Bowls and Stand
We were the lucky recipients of the Fukumaru Ceramic Elevated Feeder as winners of the monthly drawing through Floppycats.com in October. We received the elevated cat feeding station directly from Fukumaru, and it was very well packaged to keep it safe during its journey to our house. We got it within three days of being notified that we had won!

I called George Steinbeck and Atticus Finch, my two ragdoll floppy cats, to the kitchen, and they curiously helped me open and put together elevated cat feeder. Assembly was required but very easy, as all that was needed was putting four screws in with a provided allen wrench to attach the bamboo holder to the legs.
After putting the elevated cat bowls together (with the help of my inquisitive boys), I put wet food into each side of the bowl; it’s made in such a way that both of my big boys can eat at the same time without crowding the other.
Both boys seemed comfortable, and watching them eat from these elevated bowls made me immediately recognize that the angle from which they were eating with these bowls was much better for them anatomically, without having to bend their heads and necks down to reach their food. The elevation of the bowl provides them a much better position for eating and swallowing.
Since our first evening eating from the Fukumaru Elevated Feeder, we have been using it exclusively for George and Atticus. Each morning and evening, I call them to tell them it’s time to eat. They both come trotting in enthusiastically, and once the food is in the dishes, they eat voraciously.

Because they’re still both kittens, I’m currently using one bowl for dry food free feeding and one bowl for their twice-daily wet food. George has never been a big fan of wet food, so he eats mostly from the dry side, while Atticus ravenously eats any food or treat he’s given in the new raised cat dishes.
The setup of having dry in one elevated dish and wet in the other is the perfect setup for now, but having two bowls in the elevated frame will be perfect for when we transition to two meals per day after Atticus is one next March. At that point, the boys will be able to eat at the same time, with the double cat bowls.The setup of having dry in one elevated dish and wet in the other is the perfect setup for now, but having two bowls in the elevated frame will be perfect for when we transition to two meals per day after Atticus is one next March.
