“ Manufacturer: Snugglesafe / Type: Pet Feeder „
If you have read some of my previous reviews, you will know I have two guinea pigs called Amber and Coco. I got my first guinea pig Bailey five years ago, and he had a Snugglesafe bowl.
Sadly Bailey was put to sleep in June, but as I'm a bit sentimental I kept his food bowl.
I got the bowl about three years ago, from a shop called Pampered Piggies which I believe is closed temporarily at the moment.
Bailey's bowl is the bottom one pictured in the yellow and orange colours, as I ordered mine online I didn't know what colour I was going to get but I would have been happy with any of the choices available.
The bowl is two tone on the outside, the lower half is orange in colour and the upper half is a deep yellow. It says Snugglesafe at what would be the front, and is descorated with little cartoon guinea pigs a black and white Dutch and a tri-cloured guinea pig. There are five in total around the edge, three Dutch and two tri-colour.
On the inside of the bowl there is circle painted on the bottom, again in yellow and orange with another Dutch guinea pig in the middle of it this one is slightly bigger than the ones that edge the bowl.
As it is made from ceramic the bowl has a good weight to it, but Bailey could still push it around his cage so he could position it where he wanted it. He wasn't able to tip it over though, so there was no worry about the his food ending up all over the cage.
The bowl measures just under five inches in diameter and is one inch in depth. The sides of the bowl were deep enough to contain all of the food without Bailey pulling it out. Amber and Coco have slightly shallower bowls and I find they bring some of the food out of it.
It is glazed which means it's easy to keep clean, a quick wipe down was enough too keep it looking like new. I did give it a spray with pet safe cleaner every now and then without any problems. I believe the bowl is also dishwasher safe, however I don't have one so have never tried putting it in a dishwasher.
Despite the bowl being three years old, and being used daily until recently it still looks as good as new with no visible signs of wear or use to it.
I think this is a great food bowl for guinea pigs, costing around £3 you may be able to get a cheaper one but I'm not sure it would be as cute.
