Purr Now, Prey Later

Your cat might be an eight-pound purr ball most of the day, but when it's play time, their stalk-and-pounce is a reminder that they're ancestors of fierce jungle creatures. So when it comes to meals, why serve them human-style in a bowl? Veterinarian Liz Bales designed this feeding system to look like common prey, simulating natural hunting and eating patterns. Simply add food to the dispenser, hide it, and let your kitty hunt, play, eat, and rest until hunger strikes again. Designed for one cat. Made in China.

Dr. Liz Bales knows animals. She's not only a veterinarian but also a proud cat mom. Her love for her furrball and knowledge of animal behavior led her to rethink the classic pet food bowl. Since cats are natural hunters, Liz engineered the first feeding system that looks like prey. Owners simply add food to the mechanism, hide it, and let their kitty hunt, play, eat, and rest until it's time to hunt again. Thanks to Liz, cat lovers everywhere can unleash their kitties' true desires. She lives and works in Philadelphia.

Comments about UncommonGoods NoBowl Cat Feeding System:

My cat seems very bored, I really wanted this to work. My cat quickly understood how to get the food out. Now he gets the kibble out ...in 5 different places around the house, eats a few pieces, leaves the rest. So most of the food is being swept up and thrown away.

    Comments about UncommonGoods NoBowl Cat Feeding System:

    My 1 1/2 year old girl, Tigerlilly, loves to hunt! I've been searching for a product like this, and I was so excited to discover it! Before I had this I used to have to toss Lilly food or incorporate a game to spark her interest, and the mouse fits the bill. Would it be possible to sell a more expensive version that was mobile? I know my girl would love this even more if it moved, even a little. I definitely recommend this product!

    Comments about UncommonGoods NoBowl Cat Feeding System:

    I am taking care of two cats for a deployed military family. One of the cats prefers to be outside and hunt. I would prefer he not hunt, and since I started using these mice he is choosing to spend much more time inside!
