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.

What is Grommet?

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.
