We love the flower-pot inspired shape of this cute cat dish! The exterior is a matte black, with glossy Raspberry, Hubbard Blue, or Avocado in the interior. A little 'raton' hides in the bottom of the dish, with more dancing around the outside. This is a sturdy bowl with a weighty base to help keep it in place. Many vets recommend stoneware or ceramic bowls for pets, because plastic bowls can scratch easily, becoming a breeding ground for bacteria. This bowl is pretty tough and will not scratch or chip easily. Dishwasher safe.4-3/4-inch diameter.
