When your cat “hunts” for its food, it’s happier and healthier. Doc & Phoebe’s Indoor Hunting Feeder is the fun and easy way to feed your cat as nature intended – by hunting! Manage scarf and barf, alleviate anxiety and destructive behavior, and prevent litter box issues with this veterinarian designed feeder by Doc & Phoebe.
Bowl feeding can cause many downsides for your cat – aggression, scarf and barf, night walking, etc. Your cat’s stomach is the size of a ping-pong ball – the size of a mouse. In nature, cats spend 80% of their waking hours hunting for food. Cats need to hunt, catch, and play with at least 5 small meals a day.
The Indoor Hunting Feeder is a complete bowl replacement for one cat. Hunt, catch and play with five small meals a day.
The Benefits of Hunting
1 – Prevent bad behavior.
Cats redirect the hunting instinct into bad cat behavior. Exercising natural hunting instinct improves your cat’s mood and preserves your furniture!
2 – Sleep through the night.
Your cat will hunt for feeders at night, instead of hunting you!
3 – Stop scarf and barf.
Your cat’s stomach is the size of a ping-pong ball. Hunting multiple small portions eliminates scarf and barf.
4 – Litter box solutions.
Cats show distress by peeing outside of the litterbox. Hunting feeders relieve stress and can eliminate this terrible problem.
5 – Weight management.
Portion control + exercise = healthy weight.
6 – Prevent boredom.
Your cat will happily spend the day hunting, receiving much-needed exercise.
So how exactly does it work? The feeding system comes with five plastic feeders, each one with a removable, washable mouse “skin” that simulates the feel of real prey. Simply portion your cat’s food into the five feeders and hide them throughout the house. At first, you can hide the mice in easier to find locations until your cat gets the hang of it, then graduate to more challenging spots.
Your cat will use its sense of smell to find each mouse, grab it and toss it around until the food spills out so that just the right amount fills your cat’s stomach. By repeating this multiple times throughout the day, your cat will stay physically and mentally stimulated while eating properly portioned meals.
We love that the mouse skins are washable, and the plastic food dispensers and scoop are BPA-free and can be washed in the top rack of a dishwasher. Multiple sets can also be used in a multi-cat household!
Cats can become obese, lazy, anxious and even destructive or sick in the absence of hunting and interacting with their food. So what are you waiting for? Doc & Phoebe’s new Indoor Hunting Feeders are available for your kitty now at the Brookside Barkery & Bath!
