Interactive Slow Feed Bowl For Cats / Catch by Northmate - YouTube
A slow feed bowl for cats. This unique cat bowl has been created by two veterinarians ( with a cat only vet clinic), to slow down a cats eating rate and to make mealtimes more exciting. Lots of indoor cats tend to eat too fast and eat too much. However if you just restrict the food volume the cat can also get bored and develop behavioral issues. This bowl helps in the process. Made of Bamboo Fiber and rice husk it is also Eco-friendly and 100% recyclable.
The Bowl also works well with puppies and small breed dogs.
Besides being an easy way to feed our pets, slow feeders are actually able to help with some common pet issues that may surface with dogs and cats.
First, they can be a great tool for dogs with separation anxiety. You can fill up a , or a and then you can leave for work, and your dog will be occupied. He will be thinking about getting that next kibble out of his bowl instead of why you left him at home alone. Then when he’s done eating, he may forget to wonder where you are and take a satisfied nap instead!
There are physical and medical concerns that slow feeders can help with as well. When dogs or cats eat their food too quickly, many problems can arise. Dogs can get gassy, dogs or cats may vomit their food back up and it can even lead to bloat, a potentially fatal issue in dogs. Bloat occurs when a dog’s stomach expands because it is full of gas, food or liquid. This puts pressure on other organs, and can block air from easily getting to our dog’s lungs. A dog’s stomach can also twist when bloated, turning upside down and cutting off blood flow, which can cause a dog to go into shock. This is very serious and if you suspect your dog is suffering from bloat, go to the veterinarian immediately!
Bloat is pretty scary, and gas and vomiting are pretty gross. Slow feeders can help to prevent these issues by causing our pets to SLOW DOWN!
Slow Feeder for Cats and Small Dogs. Prevents vomiting and overeating. by YZZA is licensed under the license.I couldn't find anything about people using these bowls for their cats, so I made a video.
We have tried basic slow-down bowls, the Northmate CATCH feeder and the Catit Labyrinth/tower. All three are emptied very rapidly, so I needed something harder for them.
These are pretty difficult for cats. My cats are experienced at food traps and puzzles, highly food motivated and not easily frustrated. I would not advise these bowls for a cat that hasn't tried and cleaned out less complicated puzzles.Interactive Slow Feed Cat Food bowl available at Amazon -

Puzzle feeders can be helpful if you’ve put your cat on a diet because she’ll have to work (play) for the food and will eat slowly and in small amounts, since only a small amount is distributed at a time. Feeder games are also beneficial for cats who tend to inhale their meals quickly (ahem, my cat Maxwell could really use one of these lately). And of course, it’s a great move to break up monotony or boredom. You can also integrate the use of puzzle feeders with cats that are in stressful situations. They can focus on the fun activity of trying to get food out of the puzzle feeder as a distraction from whatever is causing anxiety or stress in their daily environment.
