- Cats who gulp down their meals often deal with other problems, including obesity and post-meal vomiting.
- We've rounded up the best cat feeders that are designed to slow your cat's food intake for a healthier and more satisfying meal. They may also help overweight cats shed a few pounds.
- Petmate and Jackson Galaxy teamed up to create the best cat feeder for weight loss overall: the Go Fish Slow Feeder Puzzle Bowl.
Do you have a cat who bolts down every meal? It seems that no sooner than you've fed him in the morning, he's done and waiting for more. Maybe your cat vomits because he's eaten so quickly, or maybe he doesn't even chew and puts himself at risk of choking. Either way, with an empty dish, boredom can set in, and obesity can become a serious issue that threatens his health.
Enter cat weight loss feeding products. These products can slow down your cat's ability to eat, and most of them require your cat to put forth some physical effort in order to get his meal. For indoor cats, activity is an important part of staying healthy, and these products may help your cat to lose weight.
These cat feeders are designed to enhance your cat's natural instincts, like his desire to hunt, paw, and chase. Many of them allow you to adjust their difficulty levels as your cat becomes adept at working with them, and they're also easy to clean. While we would love to see some products that accommodate wet cat food, all of these products are designed to be used with dry food.
