Great cat food dish
We have three cats, one is 14 and we worried he may not be able to figure it out. But food is a great motivator! He did try to drag the dish around the kitchen floor for a day, but then realized how to 'hook' the food out of the holes. He is 'a little chubby', but we can detect no weight loss. The 4 year old twin Siamese sisters simply walked up to it and were fishing kibble out within minutes.
Unfortunately, it did not stop Pearl's 'binging and purging'.

Keeps my fat cat from gobbling her food down so fast she throws up. Good quality, too. Nice and heavy.

Absolutely Love It!!
This is a great food dish for cats!
Mine were not happy at first but quickly learned how to get the food out. The fact that they have to work for it causes them to eat slower. This has helped with the 'gorging' problem cats sometimes have (where they throw up soon after) and my one 'fatty boy' is already losing weight - all on his own!!!
The bowl is sturdy, does not get pushed around, and the small lip helps keep food from getting all over the floor.
I highly recommend this food bowl!

I have four cats, and all of them use the feeder.
Don't fill the feeder so high that the food sits in the top funnel. That defeats the need to reach through the side holes. Instead, shake the feeder so all the food goes to the very bottom. Also, SHOW your kitty that there's food in the bowl. Scrape out a piece, while they watch, and let them pick it up. And if you have a really stubborn kitty, take up all other dry food for a day or two.
Above all, be patient! It took my laziest cat about two weeks before he 'caught on', and after that, there was no stopping him.
This feeder has an added benefit. If you own a cat who eats too fast, this will slow them down. No more wiping up yukky gook. YAY!
If your bowl slides, slip a rubber jar opener or a piece of rubberized shelf liner under it.
My reccomendation? This is the best feeder EVER! Go for it!
