Eat Slow Bowl

Some cats hoover up cat food so fast they end up throwing it up right next to the food dish. You can try slowing down the process with the Eat Slow Bowl.

The unique structure could certainly work for cats but do make sure you clean it properly between uses, especially if you feed canned or raw/homecooked cat food.

Northmate Catch Interactive Feeder for Cats

"Don't play with your food!"

That's not something you should ever be telling your cat.

Playing with prey is natural for cats, and some cats can benefit from introducing an element of play to their feeding session. We're not sure if the Northmate apparatus is more of a feeding dish or a toy. Maybe a feeding toy?

Either way, it can provide much-needed stimulation for your cat, incorporating that into mealtime in a way that allows Kitty to "hunt" down her food.

We went to Freds discount dept store  and bought 3 metal bowls same size as the new age concepts  bowl that sells for 31 dollars..Ours had rubber around the bottom to keep it from sliding. We took the rubber ring off the bottom and soaked it over night in water and baking soda because of our sensitivities to the rubber ..it worked..   we paid for each metal bowl with rubber ring at Fred's store..l.00 each.. this was a BIG bargain! Perfect for canned cat food or even dry easy to clean and does not slip on the tile floor..as they eat.. Sheri T

@Joe DiMeowgio my cat has behavioral problems and i read that the interactive feeder satisfies his instinct to hunt in addition to helping him slow down eating. he loves the bowl and sits at it for a half hour at a time, picking each piece of food out. while i think you're right about killing and eating being two separate things, the cycle of stalk-pounce-kill always ends in eating (see Little Big Cat website). that is why interactive play cycles with your cat should end in a treat, to complete the cycle and let your cat know that playtime is over.

$31 for a bowl?  Just because it is made of recycled material?   The interactive feeder looks interesting however I read that in a cat's mind, killing/hunting and eating are two entirely different and separate things.  That's why cats will kill things and bring them back to you, they really prefer the manufactured food & aren't killing out of hunger, more for enjoyment and due to natural predator stalk/chase/pounce instincts.  My guess is this is more of a toy, because if a cat is not eating under normal circumstances then he/she is probably sick and/or has impaired sense of smell.
