Do You Call It a Bowl or a Dish?

Sometimes I call it a bowl, other times a dish – what do you call the receptacle for your pets' food and water? I simply can't decide and often see the products labeled as one or another — technically a dish is "a piece of dishware normally used as a container for holding or serving food" and a bowl is "a round vessel that is open at the top; used chiefly for holding food or liquids," so either word can work . . . right?

I use both terms interchangeably, but I mostly think of them as "those things I dump so much food into, that are empty 5 minutes after I've filled them, and then the cats won't shut up until I've filled them again."

They're bowls until it's time to wash them. Then they turn into dishes. XD

i call them bowls, water and food, although the food is really a dish not a bowl, its a three compartment serving dish thingy. my cats dont like to share but i wasnt gunna get two bowls, or dishes. but the water is a bowl, two actually, oh that makes sense the thing that i only need one of i have two and the thing i should have two of it one . . . i do call their platters for their wet food treats dishes. those are actually dishes, they are little ceramic sandwich trays. oh this is so confusing . . . now im going to be thinking of this all night.
