Aby-a-Day – 4 Januari: Cast iron cat bowl holder (Fashion Friday)

I really like using elevated cat bowl stands. I have a couple of different ones, a low silicon one with steel bowls from Granngården that’s perfect for Lorelai, and a Pet Lounge Bambu diner that Jacoby uses.

But recently, I found this really cool, cast iron metal cat-shaped bowl holder on Tradera (kind of a Swedish local eBay). I love it and I’m fascinated by the workmanship. Believe me, I looked, but I couldn’t find any information on who manufactured it or when it was produced. According to various eBay and Etsy posts I found, it is apparently “vintage,” and you can find plenty of images of the bowl on Pinterest and Google Images searches.

But know nothing of its age, origins or anything else. It is, however, awesome.

It now lives out in the kitchen, where it is eaten from, twice daily, by Alfred and Angel.

They were using Bambu feeder, but this one works better in the kitchen, because it’s heavier. These bowls don’t budge now.

Angel and Freddy seem to appreciate their new dining partner, anyway.

    1. I just found one today, but much more ornate, and perhaps a hair bigger. It says: ‘Made exclusively for Upper Deck’ on the label underneath. I remember first seeing them in the 1980’s. I gather that the basic design is and manufacture is at least 30 years old. Happy to sell the one I got too. I love it because I love cast iron things, but it really should be for someone’s fine feline friend. It has the 2 stainless steel bowls too.
