If you rub a small amount of sunflower oil around the inside of your pet bowls before feeding, the food won't stick to the bowl making clean up easier. Plus the oil is good for their coats and can help with hairball in cats.

Spray some non-stick cooking spray (I prefer the kind with olive oil) in the bowl before you put the cat food or dog food in. Not only is the oil good for your cat's or dog's skin and coat, it makes cleaning the food bowl easier when they're done eating.

That's a great idea and I finally thought of it myself about 6 months ago. Another good one is to spray a little olive oil on the cat's food (not so much she will notice) to help her with the hairball problem. (02/29/2008)
