Cats Can Be Shy

Some cats need privacy to transition onto The NoBowl Feeding System™. Try leaving your cat alone overnight with The NoBowl Trainer™ to give him/her some private time to explore and try it out. Don’t forget to pick up the food dish (so it is not a distraction) and add a favorite treat or two to The NoBowl Trainer™.

Cats are solitary hunters. They want to hunt and eat alone. In fact, one of the greatest sources of distress for cats is having to eat in the presence of a dog.
