Your pet might inhale the food you served in a matter of seconds, but trust us when we say that your cat and dog do notice the dinnerware they are served with. That's why a regular metallic bowl is such a faux pas. It's like your pup is saying, "I could but I'd rather not... Bring on my fancy bowl tonight - I'm having a party." And we know that you know that your cat is thinking the same. Or not. Maybe he is just plotting how to eat your toes.
