So why cat food mats? Cats are beautiful, adorable and wonderful – check, check and check! But, are they tidy eaters? No indeed! If your cat is anything like our Milo, they can be downright slobs when they eat. So, it’s a good idea to have a pet food mat placed underneath their food bowls to minimize the mess. That way, you can just lift away the bowls (and give them a good clean once in a while too) and then tidy the mess away easily on the silicone pet mat.
We did a little rummaging around online and found a few favourites when it comes to pet food mats. These will easily contain all the mess your cats make when they chow down on their favourite cat food. And of course, not only do they make a mess while they eat, but some cats are sloppy while they’re drinking from their bowls of water, too. So, we like the mats best that have raised sides or edges, to fully contain the food debris and spilled water.

Loving Pets Bella Spill-Proof Fish-Shaped Mat for Cats, Aqua
This aqua coloured mat is super cute! It has sides to it, so your pet can be as messy an eater and drinker as they want, and you can still clean the mess up easily. Very easy to clean. The raised silicone ‘fins’ also raise the food bowls up a bit, making it easier for your cats to eat from.

Feadem Silicone Pet Feeding Mat for Cats or Dogs – Set with Bowls
Sorry about the dog picture here, but at least there’s a kitty behind him. Haha – But this awesome little set looked so good to me that I had to include it on our list of cat food mats:
* This set features a mat with bowls that fit perfectly into the silicone mat, making it nearly impossible for your pets to push the bowls around. This means less mess!
* Silicone mat is very easy to clean. Again, the mat has raised edges, meaning all the mess will be contained on the cat mat.
* Each bowl holds 1 1/2 cups of either food or water – large enough for multi-cat households.

Purchasing a cat food mat is an excellent idea, whether you have a kitten or an older cat – all pets make messes while they eat! This is an easy way to keep the mess contained in one easy-to-clean area. Now your pets can eat and drink happily, and you’ll stay happy too since things will remain nice and tidy. You’re welcome! 😉
