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 hunt small prey between 9-20 time a day, both during the day and night. 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 some other ways to support your cat’s natural hunting instinct. You could make and hide some food around your house at night to provide a way for him to hunt (and leave you to sleep!). Due to the predators outside we do not recommend letting your cat outside at night to hunt. As many of you know I have been working on a number of ways to improve the indoor environment for cats and my first product addresses exactly this issue.
The NoBowl Feeding System 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. And, best of all, you can hide a few of your cat’s five daily NoBowls overnight. Finally, your cat can hunt for NoBowls, instead of you!!!!
