Description

Did you know that your cat's stomach is only the size of a ping-pong ball? Or that wild cats spend a whopping 80 percent of their waking hours hunting for food? Now you can channel your cat's inner panther and feed in small portions with the Indoor Hunting cat feeder kit from Doc & Phoebe's Cat Co. With this unique feeding system, your kitty can satisfy her instincts without leaving your home, and without leaving a real mouse in your lap. Simply fill the feeders with your cat's favorite food, hide them throughout the house, and let your cat fulfill her wildest dreams. It's a complete bowl-replacement system for one cat, designed for three, small meals twice a day. And, with more feeders, multi-cat homes can enjoy the benefit of hunting, too! Fulfilling the hunting instinct may decrease your cat's anxiety, discourage "scarf and barf," and even deter night-waking! After all, cat parents love their furbabies, but no one loves that 3 AM wakeup call when the kitty's stomach rumbles. This kit allows your cat to be more independent while satisfying her ancestral hunting instincts. And a happier cat means a happier human.

Key Benefits
  • Veterinarian-designed system works to improve scarf and barf, night waking, litter box "hit and miss" and more by allowing your cat to act on her ancestral desires.
  • 3 interactive feeders allow cats to hunt for small portions of food twice a day, instead of relying on you to fill a large bowl once-a-day.
  • Durable plastic and textured fabric appeals to cat’s senses while she grabs and claws her prey.
  • Easy to use—just scoop your cat’s favorite food into the 3 mice and hide morning and evening.

FAQ

Can I Use The Indoor Hunting Feeder If I Have More Than One Cat?

The Indoor Hunting Feeder is the solution to meet all of your cats' natural needs. Even in the multi-cat household, each cat deserves to have its hunting needs met. Users report that the feeders reduce fights between cats and increases happiness for all of the cats in the household.

What If I Have A Dog In The Family?

Sorry pooches, it’s not for you! Doc & Phoebe designed these feeders for indoor cats that have a safe place free from dogs to hunt. Even cats who live with dogs deserve to have the benefits of hunting. There are simple ways to meet the needs of all of the animals in your care.

Cats are solitary hunters. They want to hunt and eat alone. In fact, one of the greatest sources of distress for cats is having to eat in the presence of a dog. Simply confine your cat to a dog-free space, like a bedroom with the door closed, for hunting time. This way you are meeting all of the natural needs of your cat and still allowing your dog free run of the rest of the house.

Can I Serve Wet Food In The Indoor Hunting Feeder?

We don't recommend it. Doc & Phoebe designed the Feeders to be used with any dry cat food or treats only, and the holes are designed to release the food in small increments.

Can I Still Serve My Cat Wet Food? What If My Cat Eats Wet Food Or A Raw Diet?

Yes! You can accomplish this by feeding a smaller portion of wet or raw food. The remaining daily ration will be dry food or a treat that is acceptable in your cat’s diet and will be fed using Doc & Phoebe's Feeders.

How Much Should I Feed My Cat?

To feed the average 10 lb cat, add one Feeder Scoop full of dry food to each of the 5 Feeders. The average 10 lb cat eating only dry food, requires approximately ½ cup of dry food per day. The portion filler is designed to be ⅕ of this amount.

My Cat Is A Little Chubby, Can I Use The Feeders To Help With Weight Loss?

Doc & Phoebe's Feeders are portion controlled. Feeding your cat an appropriate amount of food in small portions throughout the day will help your cat to maintain a healthy weight. Doc & Phoebe cats hunt to find their food. The hunt is the exercise in disguise. Cats that have a healthy body weight live longer lives.

Helpful Hints With Transition

What If My Cat Isn't Immediately Interacting With The Feeders?

Some cats need privacy to transition onto Doc & Phoebe's Indoor Hunting Feeder. Try leaving your cat alone overnight with the training feeder to give him/her some private time to explore and try it out. Don’t forget to pick up the food dish (so it is not a distraction) and add a favorite treat or two to the training feeder.

How Will My Cat Know Where It The Feeder Is Hidden?

Cats have an incredibly sensitive sense of smell. Your cat will use its sense of smell to hunt and find Doc & Phoebe's Feeders.

What About My Cat's Water Intake?

Increased water consumption is healthy for cats. Studies show that cats drink more water when their water is placed in a separate location from their food. Once your cat is fully transitioned onto the Indoor Hunting Feeder, hide your Feeders away from your cat’s water source for increased health and wellness.

How Do I Use The Feeders To Stop My Cat From Waking Me Up?

Save two of the five Feeders each day and hide them before you go to sleep. (Make sure to set your alarm, because your cat alarm likely will not go off!)

How Do The Feeders Stop Scarf And Barf?

Do you often see your cat vomiting food right after it gobbled it up? Each Feeder contains a small portion of the daily food and releases the food in a gradual manner. This forces your cat to slow down and should eliminate scarf and barf!

Is This Going To Make A Food Mess All Over My House?

Actually, our studies have shown the Indoor Hunting Feeder is a cleaner alternative to bowl feeding. Because the meals in each mouse only release a little bit of kibble at a time, your cat will eat the portioned amount as they hunt for each one.
