Top 5 Best Cat Water Bowls

Ensuring your cat is properly hydrated is one of the best things you can do to promote healthy working of their urinary parcel, kidneys, and almost every other organ in their body. Just like humans, proper hydration helps flush out toxins, prevents constipation and kidney stones, and keeps the mind and body working at ideal levels.

Some different types of water bowls encourage a cat to hydrate including chilled and heated bowls and even water fountains. We researched the best cat water bowls and evaluated them based on their construction, size shape, and cleaning requirements.

1. Our Pets Pet Dish

OurPets Durapet Premium Rubber-Bonded Stainless Steel Cat Dish is our top pick for a cat water bowl because it’s durable, affordable, and dishwasher safe. It’s wide enough that it won’t tip easily and your cat’s whiskers won’t touch the edges. The stainless steel is resistant to bacterial development, plus cleaning is a breeze since you can toss this bowl in the dishwasher. The bonded rubber bottom stops it from sliding, so you will not have to stress over your cat transforming your kitchen floor into a water park.

2. Frisco Stainless Steel Bowl

The angled sides and wide rubber base make it challenging to turn over the Frisco stainless steel bowl. Without a doubt larger than our Best Overall pick, this very affordable bowl is a close runner-up. It has every one of the benefits of stainless steel — easy to clean and resistant to bacterial development and scratches — while also being wide and shallow just like cats prefer. The rubber ring is easily removable for easy cleaning in the dishwasher or manually.

3. Park Life Designs Paris Pet Bowl

This beautiful decorative bowl is made of heavyweight, FDA-approved ceramic that doesn’t easily slip or spill. Its durable stoneware is 100% dishwasher-and microwave-safe. Park Life Designs Paris is just one in a collection of glossy “designer” bowls with several tasteful patterns to choose from as well as a 2-cup and 8-cup limit. With one of these affordable beauties, you can treat your cat like a prince or princess.

4. PetSafe Drinkwell 360 Pet Fountain

Many cats will hydrate if they have access to a clean fountain. That’s because their species evolved to understand that fresh, cool, streaming, and aerated water will have the least chance of being fouled by bacteria and viruses.

We like the PetSafe Drinkwell 360 Stainless Steel Pet Fountain. We like the large limit and that it includes a carbon filtration system to keep water tasting and smelling clean and fresh. An extra foam filter protects the motor to make it last. It’s relatively easy to disassemble and most parts are dishwasher safe. It’s dependable, however you can rest easy because a replacement siphon and carbon filters are available separately for purchase on the off chance that you’re in need.

5. Modern Artisans Stoneware Water Bowl

Your cat may be spilling their water because they’re feeling perky and the bowl is serving as a toy. In any case, more often, spills happen because your cat is attempting to determine how much water is in the bowl. Because they evolved as hunters, cats have great distance and night vision however they tend to have weak very close vision. So to see whether there is water in their bowl or not, they plunge their paw in or push the bowl to create a visible ripple.
