Collapsible Pet Feeders
I bought this for my cat after she started to have to bend down really low in order to eat her food. This pet feeder is a godsend. I like to travel sometimes with my cat so its nice to have the option of collapsing the bowls and stand so that it fits better in my purse or travel bag. Definitely a recommend if you have a pet and looking for a bowl upgrade.

Baggins was hesitant at first...
Although my eight year old Bichon FrisÃ©e, Baggins is an adventuresome little guy, he is cautious of change. Suspicious of new things. His (now) previous feeder; traditional wooden base with stainless bowls, and a "hand down" from our now passed 1st dog was in serious need of retirement. Also, Baggins was starting to have to creen his neck to get to food and water, ok behavior for the bird, humbling or humiliating to him depending on the day! I put the ancient pet feeder in the closet one day and moved the collapsible pet feeder into place. As all devoted pet parents do, I talked him through my behavior of washing & filling the bowls. He watched feigning ambivalence. He snorted and sniffed. He startled when I snapped the bowls in (a feature I appreciate as this combined with the bowl capacity collapsing makes for less spillage when I need to pick up the feeder and move it to clean the floor for example.). I removed myself from the room casually and he remained. Peering through the crack
In the door I watched with anticipation as he approached the feeder, did the little dog perusal of his space, then backed a few inches away
and lowered himself sphinx-like in front of the feeder. Darn! As I was contemplating how to express encouragement to embrace this all important aspect of health and happiness in his life, he stood slowly, did his second visual scan for potential predators, (and no doubt the nice but neurotic pet mom) and sidled up to the feeder! Success in record time. I would like to take credit for this, however, I think it more likely that the brown and green tones of the feeder itself are soft and familiar. They are in his leash, his bed, his winter fleece and such! It is a myth that dogs don 't see color, I read that on the Internet, just as you are now reading this review!

I wanted to get something that wouldn't rust for my cat, this is the best ever!!! I like that it holds a lot and when I take her to the grandparents I just collapse it and its easy to take with me!! I would buy more if i had more animals.

Love this bowl!
This is actually our second purchase of this item. We finally needed to replace the one we'd purchased back in 2008 as the color of the bowls had started to fade. It was still serviceable but we were sprucing up the kitchen. Our original withstood years of use that included travel, repeatedly being kicked, and even dropped a few times. The new version has locking tabs to hold the bowls in, which the original did not have.
