Since my cat, Peanut, was put to sleep a couple of weeks ago, Jelly has been on a diet. The large food bowl as well as the water dish the two had been using, are way too large for Jelly, especially since I feed him only ½ cup of food twice daily. I looked in the “cat” section of the pet store, but the bowls were much too small. One of the staff members led me to the “dog” section of the store, and that is where I found exactly what I was looking for. I purchased two Chateaux Ceramic Bowls For Dogs: one for kibble and the other for water.

I purchased a 1 Cup Chateaux Ceramic Bowl for Jelly’s kibble and it is just the right size. The other Chateaux Ceramic Bowl is a 3 cup size which I am using for his water dish.
Both bowls are made of a glazed ceramic. The outside of the bowls are designed of black and white damask. The inside of the bowls are white with a large, black damask in the middle.
Chateaux Ceramic Bowls are bacteria and stain resistant. I was concerned when I brought them home, for they are made in China, but they are made of 100% ceramic and lead free.
One thing that concerns me is that there is a caution label on the bowls that state “For Pet Use Only. Not Intended for Human Use.” If these bowls are safe for our pets, why are they not safe for human use?
The Chateaux Ceramic Bowls for Dogs are distributed by International Pet Supplies and Distribution, Inc. in San Diego,CA.
I washed the bowls thoroughly when I returned home and put ½ cup of Jelly’s new mixture of diet kibble into the smaller bowl and fresh water in the larger bowl. We are moving into a new home within the next few weeks and the kitchen’s décor is mainly black and copper. These bowls will match nicely with my new kitchen. I placed four pieces of kibble outside the bowl to entice Jelly to eat from the bowl and he eventually did.
Jelly was hesitant to approach the new bowls. He went to the water bowl and splashed around with his paw. He then went to the food bowl and stared in disbelief. Not only did I have a new bowl for him, but also a new brand of diet kibble. I placed four pieces of the new kibble outside the bowl and after a while he ate the four pieces and eventually began to eat out of the new bowl which I mixed 25% of the new kibble and 75% of his regular kibble. So far today, he has not used the water bowl, but I am sure he will if he gets thirsty.
I intended to purchase an automatic refillable water bowl, but they were made of plastic. My cat, Peanut developed sores under his chin from plastic food and water bowls which I believe was caused from the plastic holding bacteria. Since then, I have always used ceramic bowls. Also, I do not know where I will place Jelly’s bowls in the new home and the refillable water bowl has to be plugged into an outlet of which I don’t know the location.
The one cup Chateaux Ceramic Bowl for Dogs retails for $6.99 and the three cup bowl retails for $7.99.
Thank you for reading my review.
