The Neater Feeder Cat Bowl had us acting like smitten kittens from the moment we laid eyes on it and time has done nothing to dampen our love for this beauty of a bowl. Holding the top spot in our best cat food bowl guide all year, it’s the perfect mix of style and substance.

Designed with your kitty’s comfort in mind, this elevated feeding station not only minimizes neck strain, but the high walls contain spills and messes to make cleaning up after your furkid a breeze.

With two stainless steel one-cup capacity bowls, you can fill them both with the best cat food or use one for water. You won’t have to worry about this durable feeding station tipping over in the excitement of mealtimes either, thanks to the sturdy non-slip rubber feet. Did we mention this set is super-affordable as well? 

If this all sounds too good to be true, maybe it’s time we got up close and personal with the Neater Feeder Cat Bowl to find out if all that glitters really is gold.

Neater Feeder Cat Bowl: Features

Available in cappuccino or gunmetal gray, the Neater Feeder Cat Bowl is not only stylish but durable and lightweight, tipping the scales at just 1.3lbs. The two stainless steel bowls each have a capacity of one cup, which can be used for either food or water.

The patented design offers a feeding height of 2.75in at the rim of the bowl, which allows for elevated eating to reduce neck burden and ease digestion, and a splash guard height of 2in, which contains spills and messes.

We also love the front of the feeder has a slight slope to it that allows excess water to drain down into the bottom basin, which has a big enough reservoir to hold a full bowl of water, so you don’t have to worry about emptying it immediately. The filter holes are even large enough to carry away any spilled kibble.

But perhaps the best part is that the entire Neater Feeder Cat Bowl is 100% dishwasher safe, so you don’t have to worry about washing the unit separately to the bowls – just fling the whole lot in the dishwasher for hassle-free cleaning.

This great feeding station is ideal for both cats and kittens, and with the sturdy rubber feet firmly secured to the base of each leg, you won’t have to worry about it shifting about or toppling over.

Neater Feeder Cat Bowl: User reviews

With over 13,000 five-star reviews, the Neater Feeder Cat Bowl is one of Amazon’s best-selling cat bowls and it receives a similar ranking across all the major retailers that stock it.

So, what is it exactly that has pet parent’s celebrating up a storm? If you guessed that it's because they no longer have to play Cinderella and scrub floors after their kitty has eaten, then you’re spot on! Here’s what one reviewer had to say:

“Our cats have a terrible habit of splashing around in their water bowls and getting water EVERYWHERE. We've tried multiple other products, such as bowl mats and water fountains, but they always found a way to make a huge mess. This bowl solved our problem 100%. Granted, the cats still splash in the water... can't stop that... but, I haven't seen even one drip of water make a mess on the floor. All the excess water falls into the trap below and it's easy to take apart and clean. Would 100% recommend this for anyone with a messy water bowl situation or just someone looking for a new bowl!”

It’s a sentiment echoed thousands of times across the positive reviews, with people also praising how durable and easy to clean the Neater Feeder Cat Bowl is. But, as with any product, there are a few customers who aren’t so happy with it.

Those who don’t like the feeder list their main complaint as being the size – they simply didn’t find the bowls big enough for their cats. Some also feel it’s too lightweight for heavy cats, so that’s worth considering if you have a larger breed who’s a vigorous eater.

Should you buy the Neater Feeder Cat Bowl?

If you’re after a high-quality bowl at a low price that’s going to make mealtimes more comfortable for your kitty and create less mess for you to clean up, then the Neater Feeder Cat Bowl is one we recommend you consider.

With an innovative and durable design that has taken almost every possible thought and concern into consideration and thousands of rave reviews from pet parents, this is one cat bowl that’s worthy of a place in your shopping basket.
