INSPIRED BY NATURE, BASED IN SCIENCE, LOVED BY CATS.
The NoBowl Feeding System is the world's first indoor hunting system that changes the way cats everywhere eat their food. A set of five NoBowls replaces the food bowl and allows your cat to hunt in a natural and healthy way!
Benefits of the NoBowl include:
For cats, hunting is part of what brain scientists call "The Seeking Circuit." In the seeking circuit, the brain releases dopamine, which heightens their arousal and creates a great feeling of anticipation... like a child on Christmas morning. The small meal completes the cycle and leaves your cat feeling satisfied and complete... the presents are open. Cats need to engage in the seeking circuit many times a day to be mentally and physically healthy.
Eating from a bowl denies them this natural cycle entirely, yet the need to hunt remains instinctual.
Toys engage cats in the seeking circuit, putting them in a heightened state of arousal. However, the circuit is not completed by the food reward. This leaves them in the heightened state of arousal without the satisfaction of completion (Let’s be honest, nobody likes being in a heightened state of arousal without the satisfaction of completion).
In nature, cats hunt and engage this seeking circuit between 9-20 times a day, 24 hours a day. Cats spend an average of 6 hours a day seeking their food, which provides them with the majority of their daily exercise. This goes on day and night. Now you know why your cat might wake you up to eat in the middle of the night! When we remove the opportunity to hunt, we deny their natural instincts and disrupt their natural rhythms. This can lead to physical, behavioral and mental problems.
The NoBowl Feeding System mimics the natural cycle of the hunt by engaging the natural seeking circuit and completing it with the satisfaction of a food reward. In addition, the NoBowl Skin provides the tactile sensation cats want, so that they can engage their teeth, claws and paws in the hunt.
Once transitioned onto the system, your cat will hunt, find their meal, and then play with it to get the food reward. Satisfied with this healthy portion, your cat will groom and rest until hunger motivates the next hunt... just like in nature.

Valentine's Day does not just have to be one day a year, it can be every day of the year! Do something to make everyday as special to your pets as they are to you!

What makes your pet smile?
Although a smile may seem small many of us know that it’s a BIG thing. Making someone smile can be like magic to many. As part of how we will Live Big this year, smiles are on my daily to-do list. Whether it’s by cuddling, playing their favorite game, giving them their favorite meal or brushing them in that special spot, my vow to my cats is to make them smile each and every day. Pets don’t just make life better. They make it bigger. Together, we can do the same for them. So to my four fluffy Valentines ~ I love you 💘
