The Grommet offers cat bowl designed to reduce whisker fatigue

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 ( 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.
