  • To refill the food bowl, simply open both latches, take the top off with the bowls on it carefully and refill.



IRIS elevated pet feeder is a good unit that works as advertised. Good concept to save space in food storage, ideal for small apartments. Some points to consider:

  • It is a good idea to wipe the top every day to avoid any bacteria formation because some water tends to go underneath the bowls.
  • The lid has to be removed every time you want to refill the food bowl. Do this before pouring water in the other bowl.

Other than that, the IRIS elevated feeder is a very good unit and,

? I recommend it:

  • For all cats not too sloppy when drinking water
  • For small houses and apartments.

x I don’t recommend it:

  • For cats that know how to pull things out with their paws.
  • For sloppy cats when drinking
