Messy Moderncats Need the Neater Feeder! Plus BONUS GIVEAWAY

Feeding, Giveaways

Neater Feeder

Another big find from the Super Zoo Pet Expo is the brand new Neater Feeder pet feeding system. This is perfect if you have a cat, like my Sophie, who makes a big mess while she eats and drinks. The folks at Neater Feeder sent me one to test and there are a lot of things I really like about this product.

The idea behind the Neater Feeder is that it contains food and water spills, keeping your floors and walls clean while creating a more sanitary eating environment. The top portion of the feeder has nice high walls to contain the mess, and it holds two removable stainless steel bowls. Spilled food stays inside the top section and spilled water drains into the bottom reservoir. The whole feeder is constructed of sturdy plastic and has awesome non-skid feet to hold it in place. In addition to containing the mess, the Neater Feeder provides a raised feeding surface to help improve kitty’s digestion. All parts of the feeder can be placed in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.

But wait, there’s more!

Now here is the feature that really caught my attention. For those of you who feed outdoor cats, the Neater Feeder has a special bug-proof design! The top portion of the feeder has an overhanging edge that keeps ants and other bugs from climbing over the edge and into the food. When I heard about this secondary feature I knew the Moderncat readers would be interested. I’ve seen other bug-deterring bowls, like the Fool-A-Bug Bowl, but none with all the other features of the Neater Feeder.

Based on my experience — and the particular way my Sophie makes a mess — I wouldn’t use the Neater Feeder with both water and food at the same time because a lot of Sophie’s food would just end up in the water dish. So, if you have the same situation, my suggestion is to use the feeder with either two bowls of water or two bowls of food, or perhaps in the next design, the folks at the Neater Feeder could add another divider between the two bowls. Just my thoughts, but I plan to keep using my Neater Feeder because I haven’t had to clean the food off the floor at all, when normally I’m picking up spilled food all day long.

The cat-sized Neater Feeder is $34.99 US and comes in two beautiful color choices, cranberry or bronze. You can purchase the feeder directly from the Neater Feeder website, and also at Amazon.


Here’s your chance to try the Neater Feeder for yourself!

    What a great idea! My cat is such a messy eater…I currently have her food and water dishes on a food mat meant for a rottweiler or something!

    This would save me a lot of work

    My cats like to leave food bits all around their bowls. This would help contain it to one spot.

  11. 661

    OH, I love this!!! And it goes in the dishwasher, how awesome!

  12. 662

    My cat Dexter is a total messy Marvin when he eats. This would be a huge help!

    Nancy Nelson

    I have 2 terribly messy eaters and this would be a absolute godsend!! I hope I get a chance to try it out!

  14. 664

    I’ve got two cats. They alternate the job of making the mess of their food.

  15. 665

    Clever idea! My 3 are very messy eaters, that’s for sure! If I’m not lucky enough to win this fabulous contraption then I will definitely be buying it!!

  16. 666

    With seven cats in the main house, we’d have to have a lot of these for food. It would probably work very well for water, since I have a couple of “diggers” who stick their feet in the water and slosh it around OR they grab the edge of the bowl and slide it, thus sloshing it around. If I win, though, I’ll probably suggest it for Jynx, who is FeLV positive and has his own 400 square foot room. He has broken a couple of his ceramic bowls, and maybe this would be safer for him and less expensive for us.

  17. 667

    The anti-ant feature is a great idea!

  18. 668

    perfect for my messy kitty

  19. 669

    I have 4 messy kitties so this product is like a heaven to me! I dun have to pick their food all day long anymore

    Sookie The Wonder Survival Girl thinks that limiting the prize to North America is a bit dodgy.

    Or at least, that’s what I said, and she Mrooowwwed at me in total agreement.

  21. 671

    This would be a perfect solution to my messy boys who spills food all over!!

  22. 672
  23. 673

    Looks great. I love them dearly but my three cats are really messy eaters!

  24. 674

    I have a black cat that plays in the water, boy could I use this!

  25. 675

    Wow! I could use this! My cat gets her food and water EVERYWHERE!

  26. 676
    Janie M.

    I love that this is dishwasher safe! And the bug-deterrent is pretty nifty as well!!!

  27. 677

    This would be a great addition to my house. For whatever reason, my cat likes to paw at her water dish before drinking, which sometimes spills the water everywhere. I have my fingers crossed for this one!

  28. 678

    Love this! S is so messy when she eats, it would help out a ton!

  29. 679

    I’m always picking up food off the floor too. Plus I’ve been wanting a raised feeder for a while…

  30. 680

    This would be great for my cat Luna who is so finicky, she must have both wet and dry food.. but in seperate bowls. She will take a bite of the wet.. then a bite of the dry before she chews it up. It would be great to have them both there next to each other in the same feeder. It would make things easier and cleaner!

    Only someone who has stepped barefoot on dry cat food in the dark of the night will understand the genius of this product!

  32. 682

    OMG! My cats need this!! They love to play in their water dish and food dish and get water and food everywhere!!

  33. 683
    Karen J.

    Cole ALWAYS has food in his water bowl! It’s time to make him a neater kitty!.

  34. 684

    I need this…..I feed my kitties on a tray to contain the mess. Yes, I have a food tosser kitty. This will certainly help..

  35. 685
    Liz & Cassie

    Did we say we like this? We like this…a lot!

  36. 686

    What a great product!

    My Nori seems to chew with her mouth open… there’s always half chewed bits of food strewn around the bowl. I’ve currently got the food dish on a tray with sides.

    I’m not sure how Pixel and Kali would like the bowls though, since they like to eat from behind the bowls instead of in front of them.

  37. 687

    OMG! Thanks! This would be one less thing to do on my list! awesome!

  38. 688

    It seems like the designers of this feeder really paid a lot of attention to cats’ feeding needs and behavior. I’ll love to be able to give it a try, seems like a keeper. Thanks for the opportunity.

    I’m always bumping into my cat water bowls and spilling water everywhere when I refilling them. The would be great to have.

  40. 690

    One of my kitty is a shoveler and the other likes to pick food up in her mouth and drag is just a little to the left of the bowl. So basically they both create messes when they eat. They must of got it from me. Hey, maybe I should get one of those feeders for myself.

  41. 691

    This sounds like a great idea! My inside kitty isn’t too messy but I do feed an outside kitty and his food is always gettin bugs inside of it. I would definitely use this feeder for his food.

    I would love this product. I have a few cats that are quite messy.

    My two cats make a huge mess when they eat. I need to mop the area pretty much every day. This product would be a huge time (and floor) saver!

  44. 694
    Rachel G.

    I am always amazed at how messy the area around the cat bowls is. They get food on the wall, lord knows how! This looks like it would be a huge step toward keeping our cats’ feeding area cleaner.

  45. 695
    Risa Leake

    No more mess? There is hope for us!! YAY!

  46. 696

    This is PERFECT! My oldest cat, Roger, likes to take a bit of his food and then flick his head which sends bits of kibble flying all over the kitchen. I’m pretty sure he does it just to mess with me. This would save me from sweeping up kibble and also keep pests from getting in and eating the stray pieces.

  47. 697

    I so need something like that for my two cats!!! The little one, Cali, picks a little bit of food and drops it right beside the bowl before she considers eating it, wet food or kibbles… What a mess!

  48. 698

    my kitty would love one of these!

  49. 699

    wow, this would definitely make cleaning my kitchen easier – no more crushed pet food all over from all the stray pieces finding their way under the wheels of my wheelchair.

  50. 700

    This would be great for my cat who simply cannot help but leave crumbs everywhere! They get under the fridge, mashed into the rugs, and tracked into other rooms. This would prevent all that!
