You may be aware that plastic pet bowls and feeders are a breeding ground for germs, especially once they get scratched. These germs can cause cat acne or EGC (Eosinophilic Granuloma Complex) which is why it's recommended only using ceramic or stainless bowls for food and water.
Swapping to these bowl types is easy enough but what about those who have feeders for the long day at work or a night away or even for a welcome lie in :)

Easy no....? Simply buy smooth ceramic soap dishes, available in supermarkets. These ones fitted in a treat. I tried without the original tray but it left a gap when closed. By using the tray you can still place the ice pack underneath and it closes flush.
Stay tuned for my next installment when I show you how I adapt timed gravity pet feeders.
It's never easy dealing with a loss of a pet for us humans, they were a friend, a member of the family so much so that they were part of daily routines.
If you have a multi pet household like we do at Purrfectly Handmade, ours are all cats, then a loss within that group can make a big difference to the whole dynamic.
We've been in this position a few times and sadly last week we found ourselves facing this situation yet again with the sad loss of our eldest boy Salem.
So here are my tips to help you help your pets through the grieving process.
Recently we decided it would be nice to have memorial planters for our cats, a lasting memory that helps us.
However I'm hoping this post comes across as more of a 'Getting to know me....the person behind Purrfectly Handmade' rather than anything else.
All my life I've known I was more of a practical person than academic and I think this will become very apparent straight away.
Well I hope you've enjoyed learning more about me and what makes me tick.
