    You could try putting the bowl on a tray that might help contain things a bit.

    All I can suggest is less food served at any one time. But if the cat is set in their way, retraining is difficult. We use a tray, but one with no sides but it does have a tendency to keep the bowl in the same place

    I'll try a tray.

    Actually, maybe the reason she scatters the food is because the bowl squishes her whiskers. Maybe I'll try a shallower bowl too.

    So, it has passed two weeks since we bought the microchip pet feeder.
    We can consider as a good experience as Mousse has lost weight and Jazz has gained it.
    Now we have realized that Mousse has an anxiety problem as she eats her daily ration, which is the ration recomended by our vet, in less than two hours. At least she does not eat Jazz's food.

    This might help: https://www.petsmart.ca/cat/bowls-a...1/neater-feeder-express-cat-feeder-36481.html

    Another possibility is a bowl that curves inwards as it goes up according to another forum I read.

    I think I figured out the scattering-food thing. The bowl gets moved around when the cats eat out of it, and then it gets pushed up into a corner. When that happens, my cat starts pulling food out of the bowl and scattering it so she can eat it without bumping her head.

    I moved the bowl to a slightly different location.

    My old dead cat, well not dead in this picture.
    It is rather fuzzy and all? But he was a cutie and i loved him very much.
    He was very well behaved. (And a little scared by nature), not that fierce with other cats. More of a lover and not a fighter.

    Edit: Are you kidding me?

    I put the URL in as it is then, no tag. Or no show.
    A photo out of a photo. Could have been done better.
    But i guess i´m drunk and insane AAAAAAALL the time :)

    If your picture is on your desktop, then you can just drag it into the posting box. Then choose whether or not you want a full size or thumbnail.

    @Hans66 just pretend that you took it with your new iphone 11 and used special effects to make it artsy.

    I told my mother why I moved the bowl. She decided to move it back because it was "in the way," and then yelled at the cat for scattering food again. :shake:

    My dog does this too. And if you step on the kibble with shoes on, it explodes and pits my crappy faux-wood floors. :mad:

    He likes to stash kibble around the house (in the couch, in the bed, etc) and also just drop pieces randomly on the floors.

    I don't have any solutions for you. Is wet food an option for you?

    I've tried several wet foods, but it makes the cats sick.
