Hi. I am new to this forum. I joined to connect with other people who are working with feral cats.

My question is: What kind of feeding dishes do you use for feeding feral cats? What kind are the best for outdoors?

I ask because the site where I am performing my first TNR operation does not use feeding dishes. They just have some plastic jugs cut down to bowl size. I wanted to get some dishes for them and maybe one of those upside down water dispenser thingies.

Any thoughts on what works best would be much appreciated. Thank you.

why not go to the dollar store and get something like a storage container in the size and shape you want. They come in rectangles, or round ones, some are deep, some are shallow. Just whip the lid off and you have a durable feeder.

I have an outside feral kitty and used to use one of the water dispensers, and he kept knocking it over. I looked everywhere for a heavy one, but couldn't find it, so I just ended up using a heavy ceramic bowl (he hasn't managed to knock that over yet). I would definitely get something cheap for food for outside. I've had my dishes get "lost" (some I later found in the yard :) ). Right now, I just use a deep plastic square container that I got at WalMart.

good point, LadyK

maybe something like a big rectangle baking dish. You know, they look like a rectangle cake pan and being ceramic they weight a ton. Garage sales, yard sales, dollar store (maybe) would have stuff like that?

Oh, another good place to find dishes is at a local Goodwill or other thrift store. I found a bunch of brand new Corelle plates that I use for my foster cat. They still had the original price stickers on the bottom and I got them for $0.99 each. I might go back and get some like it for my two ferals, now that I'm thinking about it.
