For those who are having trouble with your cat’s leftover food
Your cat may be leaving food on the plate because the plate is hard to eat from.
We have developed a new product that utilizes a cat’s natural eating behavior. With “Munch Munch Food Bowl,” your cat will leave less food on the plate.
Cat’s Natural Eating Behavior
They lick and lift the food while pushing down with their tongue.
[Problem 1] It piles up around the edge
The food at the edge of the plate is hard to eat, so the cat just leaves it.
[Problem 2] It spills
The food pushed outside the plate is never eaten by the cat and is just left there.

3 Special Points of Munch Munch Food Bowl
1 Because it’s tilted, the food gathers to the center and doesn’t spread to the edge.
Because the bowl is tilted inwardly, the food gathers to the center and is easy to eat until the last bite.
Even the cats that are not good at eating can finish up their food without stress.
Rather than a flare plate in which crunchy kibbles slip away, this bowl makes it easier to eat, so the leftover food will be a lot less.
The whiskers don’t hit the bowl and it is easy to eat, so your cat can focus on eating.
2 It’s lower at the front, so it is easier to put the cat’s face in
Because it is shaped diagonally with a lower front, it is easy to put the cat’s face in. And because it is easy to eat, your cat can easily bring the food into his or her mouth.
3 Curved inwardly to prevent spills
The side curved inwardly works like a wall to prevent food from spilling. So your cat can eat calmly without spilling food outside the bowl.
Other Special Points of Munch Munch Food Bowl
Porcelain is so sanitary that it is used for medicine bottles
Plastic plates can be scratched easily and do not get completely clean even after they are washed. So, there is a risk of bacteria and germs growing from the scratches. Munch Munch Food Bowl is made of porcelain which is as strong as glass, tough, and hard to break. It is hard to get scratched and dirty, so it is sanitary.
Reduces your cat’s stress because it’s sturdy and can be used for a long time
It is said that cats feel very stressed until they get used to new items. Therefore, products that can be used for a long time reduce a cat’s stress.

Comment from the owner:
She’s been eating without making a mess ever since we got this bowl!
Because she wants to always bite well when eating, she used to scatter crumbs all over, but it’s clean with this bowl.

I’m not sure if it was my cat’s personality, but the amount of food scattered over the floor was more than the amount he ate. I was perplexed every time because it was not sanitary. It was not cheap and I knew it might not work, but I bought it anyway. And now, he can eat very cleanly. Actually, the bowl is made in a way that the food doesn’t spill. The differences are clear. I’m glad I bought it. The pictures are from before (I’m sorry for the mess.) and Munch Munch Food Bowl that I’m currently using.
Frequently Asked Questions
For first-time customers and those who have questions, please
read the following.
Q. Is there only one size?
A. We have prepared 3 sizes.
Size small: about 4.92 in. x 1.18 in. Size medium: about 5.7 in. x 1.77 in. Size large: 7.08 in. x 1.97 in.
Q. Why do you stick to handmade?
A. Compared to the ones made with a mold, the handmade porcelain will be more dense and can be made thin and sturdy. Therefore, though it takes a lot of work, we hand-make each one without using a mold. Therefore, Munch Munch Food Bowl is an asset that can be used generation after generation.
Q. What is the difference between ceramics and porcelain?
A. For ceramics, clay with different particles are used, so there are gaps. On the other hand, the china stone for porcelain is clay with small, same-sized particles, so there is no gap, preventing the glaze from penetrating. The material is used for medicine bottles.
Q. How much food can I put in the bowl?
A. The cat kibbles are put in the Munch Munch Food Bowl Size Medium.
Q. What is the difference in the color of the bowl?
A. The same clay is used for both white and cream, but the difference in color is a result of how they are heated.
We first extract the oxygen from the kiln, making the inside of the kiln oxygenless. This makes the color change into white.
Left: White Right: Cream
Q. Is there a way to see which part is the front of the bowl?
A. To tell which is the front part, a mark is placed at the bottom. If it is still hard to tell, it may help you to put a puffy sticker that is regularly sold at a store.
