Most of the dogs and cats in the show eat and drink from food bowls.
- Martha eats from a dark green food bowl with "MARTHA" written on it in dark orange letters. In Martha Gives Advice, she also spoke into it like a microphone. Knocking it over is not permitted.
- Skits eats from a red food bowl with "SKITS" written on it in white letters.
- Martha and Skits drink from a yellow bowl. Skits knocked it over in Martha and Skits as a puppy and in My Mother, the Dog he knocked Helen's permission slip into it.
