I decided to make a review of Binkies Pet Supply Elevated cat bowl because it’s the first raised cat bowl I’ve seen being almost completely flat and large enough that fits almost any cat size.
I wanted to know more about this elevated bowl and see if it was really a good choice to feed cats. I’ve seen some raised bowls that feature corners where food gets stuck making it hard for cats to finish their meal. Also, some flat-type elevated dishes don’t contain the food properly so when cats are eating the food slides off and onto the floor.
Finally, I was curious to see if this elevated bowl is good for cats with disabilities that can’t stand up too long or hunch over to eat. Let’s see what I found out about this particular item.

More nice details about Binkies Pet Supply Cat Dish
What I like about this unit is that the dish doesn’t separate from the base. This is one piece which makes it easier to manipulate without the risk of dropping it.
This elevated cat bowl holds up to one cup of dry cat food and about 5 ounces of wet canned food. It is recommended to feed cats with half of this capacity to avoid spilling.
I can see how the Binkies Pet Supply raised cat bowl can be a great solution for flat faced cats that have a hard time reaching over the food from the floor level. The Binkies not only makes it easier for the cat to eat its food, but also it’s one of the best wide cat dishes that prevent whiskers stress.

What do I think about Benkies Cat bowl?
I think that Binkies Pet Supply Elevated cat bowl is a great solution to any adult cat who needs to get a better posture when eating dry or wet food.
The design of this cat dish is well thought out to keep the food in the center of the dish while the cat eats. This avoids dry or wet food from sliding out the dish. The ergonomic lip on the rim doesn’t get wet food stuck under like other bowls do, which usually makes it hard for the cat to reach the food to eat.
Finally, this is the only porcelain elevated cat bowl that has more a shape of a saucer, which helps a lot of cats that hate their whiskers being touched when eating.
I recommend Binkies Pet Supply elevated cat dish for any adult cat, especially:
- Flat faced cats
- Cats with disabilities or that had a surgery
- Cats that hiccup or vomit after eating
- Elderly felines
This elevated cat bowl may not be suitable for:
- Cats that scoop the kibble with their paws when eating
- Use as water dish
