Studies show that most owners don’t know how much to
feed their cats. More than 50% of cats are overweight,
while 25 % of cats are obese.
Just as cat ownership increases globally, specialized
products that cater to pets specific needs, have risen to
meet the demand and replace generic alternatives.

Whiskers Fatigue

Whiskers fatigue is a condition caused by the rubbing of
their whiskers against bowls during when eating. This
constant pushback causes a great deal of stress and
anxiety in cats, who use their whiskers as sensory and
communication tools.
