Personalised Pet Bowls as Unique as Your Dog or Cat Is.

Feeding your dog or cat is such an important time of the day, whether you have a food obsessed spaniel desperate for din-dins, or a poor feeder that you worry about and have to coax to eat.  Chow Bella dog and cat bowls are beautiful, handcrafted ceramic bowls, painted and personalised to your needs and guaranteed to make dinner time even more special.  They can be matched to your pet or your decor, and make wonderful gifts, too!

Established in 2006, Chow Bella Ltd is a very small business run by potter Claire Pearson-Cowell, with the help of two part-time staff. Every single pet bowl is hand crafted on a traditional potter's wheel and can be customised to suit your pet, your decor, or both.  We are most well known for our Ear Free Bowls aimed at spaniels and other long eared dogs, but we also have a wide range of traditional dog bowls, cat bowls and treat jars.  We have made bowls for both celebrities and television and pride ourselves on having excellent customer service, with a 5* rating on TrustPilot

Chow Bella Pet Bowls make perfect gifts for your much loved pets, and I also have a range of beautiful bone china mugs and other gifts for yourself or your pet loving family.

National Adopt a Cat Month

National Adopt a Cat Month

Battersea cat

June is National Adopt a Shelter Cat month. I'm a big fan of this as both my cats were rescued. One from a work colleague, and Taj, shown here, who came from Battersea Dogs and Cats home when he was 6 months old. 

I was immediately drawn to this sleek, gorgeous little boy, then named Foggy. He was renamed Taj after the very cool blues singer, Taj Mahal, because, well, he was a very cool cat. He was half Burmese, and would chat away endlessly. He'd sleep with his paw curled around my thumb (so sweet!).

When Bella arrived on the scene, about 2 years later, Taj found her a bit much, all that bouncing and full body wagging and shouting. Always a very calm character, Taj never ever swiped at her. Instead he'd just raise one paw as if to say, "Look, enough!". Bella was so desperate to be buddies with him, and must have watched his body language closely, because one morning, she jumped on the bed as usual, and Taj raised his paw. Well Bella had obviously decided this was some kind of greeting, and so she mirrored him and raised her paw as well - the pair of them sat there as if waving at each other across the street - I couldn't believe it!

Taj would spend many hours in my studio, where his favourite place to sit was, as shown, on the workbench next to my wheel, on top of all the letter stamps. Being a cat, he liked to knock the stamps onto the floor, which wasn't the most helpful thing in the world but that's cats for you!

The first ever cat bowl that I made was for Taj, in green and ivory with his name and even some Swarovski crystals on it just for poshness :-)

Adopting a cat can be so rewarding and a good rescue centre will make sure they match you with a suitable cat for where you live. Why not think about it?
