It’s 4am and you are thoroughly enjoying your REM sleep...until your cat starts nibbling at your toe or poking at your face. Wake up! It’s time to eat!
I lovingly refer to to this exhausting part of cat ownership as Night Nudging. In fact, Night Nudging is so common, that cat owners accept it part of the deal. Cats are so wonderful that they are worth waking up for. While this is true, wouldn’t it be extra-wonderful if you could love your sweet kitty AND sleep through the night?
Why do cats Night Nudge? In nature, cats may make as many as 100 hunting attempts to catch the 8-13 small prey a day they need to survive. This hunting is not limited to daytime. While cats are also champion sleepers, their bodies are created to have the drive to hunt and eat small meals all day and all night. With the lack of mice and birds roaming your home in the wee hours of the night, your cat will hunt your sleeping self!
There are ways to support your cat’s natural hunting instinct. Use a feeding device to hide food around your house at night. Now your cat can spend the night the way nature intended for a cat -hunting, catching and playing with small portions of food before eating them and you get to spend the night the way nature intended for humans - sleeping!
Doc and Phoebe’s Feeder is the first and only complete indoor hunting system for cats. It was designed to recreate the natural Seeking Circuit of the feline hunter and fulfill their natural instincts. It is safe, clean, easy to use. Finally, your cat can hunt for its feeders, instead of you!!!!
