Indeed, it would be better to label these things feeders than bowls since either model looks nothing like the bowl you feed your favorite animals with. Pictured down south is the dog variant, shaped like a giant paw where the canines can then search for their food by pawing the hollowed out toes.
There’s a cat variant as well and soon a specialized feeder for the domestic avian set (Parrots to be specific). Why the strange design for each? According to vets, it has a purpose. Here’s what one of them blurbed on the Aikiou product page.
Dogs and cats need average 3 to 5 hours of activity each day. Sadly, this need is not met in 80% of family pets living in the city. Any type of complementary activity would be welcome. For your pet’s wellbeing, I recommend that you provide fun, enjoyable and stimulating activity… The Aïkiou products can help you do so.
This explains why your neighbor’s cat is obese, boys and girls. So five hours of activity to get them in shape as nature intended? How about loosing them in the wild (or someone else’s yard) for some good old fashioned hunting-for-food?
That’s probably a bad idea. Anyway, each of these feeders go for $28. No bad. Can people eat of these too?
