Hey guys, quick question.

Anyone know where I can get true stainless steel cat dishes for cheap?? I went to my local petsmart yesterday and they're $5.99 each! I think that is ridiculous. Or, maybe I'm just cheap. I bought a whole bunch when Hunter was small, now I'm down to 2. I don't know if he is stashing them somewhere, I've never seen him walk around with a bowl in his mouth. So I'm washing them and rewashing them constantly. I looked on Amazon, and ebay, and the cheapest I found was $3.17 on ebay I think. (Ebay scares me, you never know what you're going to get)

Anyone know of a good website I can order some from? I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!

We found some real stainless steel ones in the Pet Department at Wal-Mart. If I remember, they cost about $3.95 - this was a good size dish to use as a water bowl.

For china bowls, just go to housewares, it is much cheaper.

Hunter, it's good to feed in a flat plate so there's little or no contact of the kitty's chin with the dish which can lead to chin acne. So you can use any kind of glass/ceramic plate - saucers or sandwich plates from your local thrift are cheap and easy. Same with water bowls - if stainless steel is expensive, you can try ceramic.

Asian markets have shallow stainless steel bowls in the housewares section smile They're used for steaming and serving foods in but you could use them as a pet bowl. The bowls aren't expensive at all, less than a dollar for a a small bowl that would be suitable for a cat.

Glazed ceramic will do if you can't find cheap stainless. I don't know your location but you might check the local dollar stores. Just make sure the bowls in these places are actually stainless. Also, if you have a feed supply store anywhere around you might find some there at a lower price. Or possibly a restaurant supply store. Good luck in your quest!

We found them for a great price at Wal-mart. They looked exactly like the ones at PetSmart.

Well I went to a couple of Thrift stores Saturday night, while Hunter had his lil escapade outside, and didn't see anything really. They had the sandwich plates, or salad plates whatever you call them, but I had to buy the whole dish set. Definitely wasn't going to spend $30+. I found really cute lil ceramic dishes at walmart, but they were almost like bowls. So, the search continues.

Glass plates huh, hmmm wonder where I can get those...

Plastic is bad right? Walmart had cheap plastic ones I was looking at, but decided to wait.
