About Cat Food Dishes - You probably know that cats want you to clean their food bowls after each meal, and that you should not use dishwashing liquid, because they dislike the smell. What you might not know is that plastic bowls always retain some 'old food smell'. A cat or kitten will notice, even if you don't. She'll refuse to eat out of this bowl for no apparent reason. Therefore, invest in some porcelain bowls and make sure they are dishwasher safe.
When washing bowls in the dishwasher, rinse again once the washing cycle is finished for best results.
