"No Bowl" is a bowl-free feeding system. Keep your mind and body healthy by satisfying your cat's hunting instincts.
It was developed by Dr. Liz Bales, a veterinarian. It is said that it was designed so that indoor cats can enjoy the joy of hunting and maintain a happy feeling and a healthy body.
"No Bowl" is a set of five feeders that look like mice. It is a mechanism that puts dry food in each of the five feeders and installs them in various places in the room.
When a cat finds "No Bowl," he uses a claw to catch it, toys with it, and then hides it in his favorite place. After that, when you're hungry, go to a hiding place, roll "No Bowl" and take out dry food from inside to eat. It is said that this series of actions will satisfy the cat's hunting instinct and keep the cat's mind and body healthy.
Dr. Bales argues that by using "No Bowl," cats that are tired of the current environment and have less physical activity will return to their original active state. It also has the effect of suppressing problem behaviors such as scratching the owner's legs caused by stress.
Dr. Bales is currently conducting a campaign to recruit investors on the crowdfunding site kickstarter for the commercialization of "No Bowl". At the time of this writing, a $ 40 investment is available for a set of "No Bowl." A separate shipping fee to Japan is required. The retail price after the campaign is expected to be around $ 50.
