Perfect height for maximum comfort when eating. While humans can eat upside down; the feline anatomy is such that – when a cat eats from a dish, its mouth becomes lower than its stomach and the risk of backflow is increased. Food stays centered so there is less stress from having to chase food around the bowl. Have you noticed that from time to time as your cat is finishing its meal, the food begins to scatter toward the edges of its bowl? Cats have a hard time trying to get to the last bits of food that remain along the rim of the bowl. That is why the bowls from the Happy Dining series are designed with the perfect curvature for making food fall back to the center of the bowl.
