What is whisker fatigue?
Having earned my doctorate in Whiskerology from the University of Catbridge, I do know a thing or two about how whiskers work. As cats, we’re very particular about our food, of course. But we’re also very particular about our bowls.
Whiskers are wonderful things. They can help us detect changes in the air current, so we can navigate our way through narrow opening and dark spaces. But that also means we can be subject to an affliction known as “whisker fatigue”.
Allow me to elaborate…
When our whiskers are forced into close contact with the sides of our bowls, it can get extremely painful. And that’s why we don’t always finish our food. Not necessarily because it’s the wrong food – but because it’s the wrong bowl.
The signs of whisker fatigue:
- Leaving food in the bowl, but is still hungry
- Pulling food out of the bowl with their mouth or paw to eat off the floor
- Leaving a mess behind on the floor
- Only eating form the center of the bowl
- Acting aggressive toward other animals in the house during mealtime
- Standing by the bowl before eating for a period of time, pacing around the bowl, or being hesitant to eat, though hungry
My cat doesn’t have whisker fatigue. Can I still use Dr. Catsby’s bowl?
Dr. Catsby’s bowls are purrrfect for all cats.
I believe in the health and wellness of my feline friends so, I believe that this bowl can bring added happiness to any cat that is lucky enough to use it.
My cat is still making a mess with his/her food after trying Dr. Catsby’s. What should I do?
The Dr. Catsby’s bowl is like riding a bike for the first time. At first you may begin on a shaky note, but the more you use it, the more streamlined it becomes. After a few tries, your cat’s meal time should become shipshape and tidy.
Dr. Catsby's bowl works best with premium dry food or soup-like wet foods. Some wet foods that are sticky or clumpy may be better suited for a large flat plate.

What type of metal is the bowl made from?
Dr. Catsby’s Bowl is made from #304 food service grade stainless steel. This is the same grade of stainless steel as used in milk pasteurization, beer brewing, cookware, and eating utensils.
Stainless steel is one of the most common materials found in kitchens today. It's used in everything from appliances to cookware, dishware, flatware, and utensils because it is durable, easy to sanitize, and corrosion resistant to various acids found in meats, milk, fruits and vegetables. Most importantly though, stainless steel is a safe option when it comes to use with food and beverage, as there are no chemicals that can migrate into your food from these products.
Is this bowl BPA free?
Yes! We're proud to say that the grade of stainless steel used makes our bowl BPA free.
What types of food can be used in this bowl?
Dr. Catsby's bowl is recommended for use with dry food or wet food!
Some sticky wet foods may take some time for your pet to adjust to the shape.
Is this bowl for an indoor or outdoor cat?
This bowl is purrrfectly designed for any cat that is lucky enough to get their paws on it.
How to care for your bowl
I recommend hand washing the bowl and mat with warm soap and water. Towel dry.
If you prefer the dishwasher, wash only the bowl on the normal setting. Do NOT place the rubber mat in the dishwasher.
