My kitty loves her Platinum Pets diner stand. Food has never been a problem--she would likely eat straight off the floor--but this diner stand has made water interesting. Add a piece of ice, and she will dip her paw in, batting it around gently. Amazingly, nothing gets spilled during this process. :)
These are great looking stands, and eliminates the need for a cat to bend so far down to get at the food/water. Much easier on their backs than a standard floor level bowl.
I'm considering buying a second set for treats and milk, although there is a three-way version available. If I had a canine, I would check out the larger versions. Seems to be a very well-made product.
