Did you know that cats can suffer from whisker fatigue?
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.
Shopping site, The Grommet (http://thegrommet.com) recently launched Dr. Catsby’s Whisker Relief Food Bowl, a cat bowl that is designed with cats in mind to combat whisker fatigue (they’ve sold more than 2,000 units since it launched last week).
This 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, founders Loren Kulesus and Erik Strom found that cats treated the bowl like a utensil, using the slope to nudge food into their mouths.
The bowl sells for $19.95.
