Modern feeding station for cats
It’s been a while since I last wrote here, and topics are building up! I decided to start from one thing that I’ve been wondering for some time. That is, why do pet stores still sell so many cat bowls that are either a) unpractical b) undurable or c) impossible to fit to any modern home decor — and why do people settle for these. I’ve done this pretty long myself, there’s no denying that. Friends who’ve visited our house have seen the orange fish-patterned bowls on dotted plastic mats, for example.
For me, things changed upon visiting the Finlayson store earlier this year. Finlayson is a Finnish textile company, mostly known for its bathroom and bedroom textiles, which was what I was originally also after on that visit. However, I happened to notice very pretty small Taimi-trays, which were the right size to fit one food bowl and one water bowl per tray. I bought them and used them for a while with the existing bowls, but something was still missing.
It took yet another visit to IKEA to find that missing piece! 🙂 I’ve been admiring the raised bowls from Necoichi, and I thought I’ll get near enough to the idea with a combination of small 365+ bowls (sold two per pack, diameter 9 cm per bowl) and 365+ cork coasters (also sold two per pack, diameter 9 cm) turned upside down to raise the food bowls. It turned out great, and the old water bowls fitted well too. Very easy catification, I’d say! Or what do you think? 🙂
