Veterinarian develops new twist on feeding cats

Animal Health SmartBrief | Jul 25, 2016

Veterinarian Liz Bales created the NoBowl Feeding System, a new method of feeding cats that abandons bowls and instead includes five small containers owners can stuff with cat food and place around the house for cats to hunt. The containers resemble mice, and the system is designed to work with a cat's instinctual eating behavior by encouraging them to seek food, bat the containers around and chase down the dispersed pieces.
