Does your cat experience whisker stress? Maybe you’ve noticed him pulling food out of the bowl and eating it on the ground, or does she only eat out of the center of the bowl and leave food around the edges? Some cats can even pace around the bowl, hungry but not eating, or even get aggressive with other animals in the house during meal time. These are all signs of whisker stress.


Whisker stress, also known as whisker fatigue, is caused when a cat’s whiskers are forced to come in contact with the edges of their food bowl or dish. Since a cat’s whiskers are extremely sensitive, this is quite uncomfortable and can cause irritation. This new bowl from Dr. Catsby is a great solution!


Dr. Catsby’s Anti-Whisker Stress Cat Food Bowl provides a wide shallow eating surface that allows food to fall to the center of the bowl but still provides enough of an edge to prevent food from being pushed out of the bowl. Made from high-quality stainless steel, the bowl is dishwasher safe and includes a cutaway for easy lifting.

Stainless steel is one of the best materials for feeding cats because it can be thoroughly cleaned and won’t harbor acne-causing bacteria like plastic can. The Dr. Catsby bowl sits on a separate rubber mat to prevent slipping and to make clean up easy, something I think is genius, because I’ve had to throw away several bowls that had attached rubber rings, which are hard to clean and become cracked and worn over time. The separate non-slip mat is a great idea!


You will not be disappointed in the quality of this feeding bowl! And at $19.99 it’s a bargain! I love these so much, I’ve added them to the Hauspanther online store, available for shipping worldwide. Order one (or two) today!
