Whisker Relief Food Bowl

By Dr. Catsby's

Your cat food bowl could be to blame for a fussy feline. When cats repeatedly bump their super sensitive whiskers—like against sides of their bowls—they experience whisker fatigue, which is painful and stressful. This sleek bowl was designed to help prevent overstimulated whiskers. Its shallow curve piles food up in the center, so there’s no bumping around. And bump-free whiskers make for a happier cat.

Pretty, but...

The food bowl is very well made and looks great. However the low sides and slope of the bowl, which is designed to alleviate whisker fatigue, allowed my cat to push the food out of the bowl and onto the floor. This happened with both wet food and dry food. We went back to his regular bowls, and he seems none the worse for our little experiment.
I have given the bowl to my son, who is raising two young kittens, with the idea that they may learn to eat from the bowl, and not push the food out.

Not well received by the cats

I have many cat dishes; not by choice but by trying to find the best dishes for my cat. I have one winner, a pewter dish a little smaller but much like the Whisker Relief Food Bowl. I set up two dishes, the pewter and this one. They fight over the pewter and only in the middle of the night do they eat a bit of the food in the new bowl.But, every morning most of the food in the new dish is uneaten. Considering the fact that this dish was far more expensive that the other dishes I own, I give a big thumbs down. BTW, they eat wet food in the a.m. and dry in the p.m.More > < Less

Why do cats throw food on the floor?

About Dr. Catsby's

Catering to Cats

Cat food bowls often aren’t designed with cats in mind. Co-Founder Loren Kulesus discovered this when his own cat left food uneaten.

Hunger strikes, scooping food out of the bowl, and acting up are all signs of whisker fatigue. That’s a real condition for our feline friends, whose ultra-sensitive whiskers can get over-stimulated. It’s painful for cats and stresses them out. And in most whisker fatigue cases, repeatedly bumping whiskers on a food bowl’s sides is the prime suspect.

So Loren and Co-Founder Erik Strom created their own bowl. Their sleek, stainless steel design has a shallow curve that piles food up in the center, and it sits on a non-skid mat for extra stability. When testing it out, they found that cats treated the bowl like a utensil, using the slope to nudge food into their mouths. (Cats are quite clever, after all.)

With no more whisker fatigue, Mr. Fluffles will be feeling stress-free and well fed, and that will make both of you happier.
