The Doc & Phoebe’s Indoor Hunting Feeder
Our cats are born to hunt and when they are denied the ability to satisfy this instinctive behavior it might lead to health and behavior problems. When I saw the Doc & Phoebe’s Indoor Hunting Feeder at a pet expo, I was intrigued and thought I would like to give it a try with our little wild cats.
The feeding system comes with five plastic feeders, each one with a removable, washable mouse “skin” that simulates real prey. Just portion out your cat’s food into the five feeders and hide them throughout your house. Your cat will use their noses to find each mouse, and pounce and play until the food falls out as a reward.
We have not replaced Annie, Eddie and Mercy’s meals with the mouse feeders but opted to add enrichment throughout their day by placing treats inside the feeders and allowing them to hunt down their reward.
Eddie is the most interested in hunting and playing with the Indoor Hunting Feeder. This was not a surprise to us as he plays all day every day. As you can see in the photo above, he is quite proud of his reward after hunting down this mouse. Annie, however, does not look as amused…does she?
Doc & Phoebe’s Indoor Hunting Feeder
The Indoor Hunting Feeder is a complete bowl replacement for one cat. Hunt, catch and play with five small meals a day. Decrease anxiety, reduce the instance of scarf and barf, end early wake up calls from a hungry cat, and correct your litterbox woes with five easy and fun feeders a day. Give your cat the best science has to offer with a feeder designed for their natural instincts.
Each Doc & Phoebe’s Indoor Hunting Feeder includes:
- 1 Trainer complete with multiple dispensing holes
- 5 Feeders each with two dispensing holes – designed for any size kibble
- 5 Feeder Skins designed to simulate the tactile feel of prey allowing your cat to grab, claw and use its teeth as it would in the hunt
- 1 Scoop which holds 1.6 tablespoons (1/5th the daily ration of an average 10lb cat)

Cleo's Mama says
i think she would like it. She likes mouse-shaped toys, not to mention food!
Jenna Allensworth says
I think Marceline would like it and it would keep her occupied while I’m at work or when she gets up during the night
Lori N says
I’d love to try this! I have several cats, including rescues (formerly outdoor cats) so I think it would be great for them.
Cindy Loohoo says
I think my kitties would absolutely LOVE these! When we come home we can always tell where our kitties have been laying and playing because their little mice are all strewn around the house. They go into their toy box and take their toy mice out and play with them and leave them everywhere. So fun! I can’t imagine all the fun they would have with (big surprise!!) treat filled hidden mice. I love this idea!
Evelyn Chuter says
I’m sure at least one or 2 of my 11 cats will enjoy it very much.
My cats loved when I would play games with their treats, hiding them around the house or in puzzle toys so I know they would love this.
Judy Thomas says
My cats would love it. They got a few toys at Christmas and love to try anything new and fun.
Stephanie Lichtman-Price says
I’m honestly not sure whether they’ll go for this method of getting their meals…I think they will, especially the younger boy. I’d certainly love to try it and find out!
Colleen Miller says
I believe my cats will love these little toys.. I have 3 furbabies .. and they will have a blast with these mousies 🙂
I think the kitties would find the system very stimulating.
I don’t know if my cats will like it. They are pretty much pampered.

Nicole in San Diego says
I think Amy would have so much fun hunting for her treats!
Rebecca Fiene says

Betty Eckhouse says
I have 2 cat’s, and I’m sure at least one will find them. She never stops eating!
Mary Hall says
My kitties would love these. They have the Whiskas mouse and always play with it.

I’m interested to see what the shape and design will do differently than a food bowl….as usual, some cats will and some cats won’t. But any exercise is great!
Nicole C says
My cat would love this! She’s always hunting something in the house and she is a food lover too!
I would really like to know where you found that adorable cat box your babies are in????? My youngest would love something like this since all the world is one big game to her 🙂
This is interesting and I’m wondering about my 2 boyZ having this kind of fun!

My fur girls, Mitzi and Luna, would love this! I already use a few puzzle feeders but they don’t allow you to kill your prey! I think they would really enjoy the hunt and catch aspect of the NoBowl Feeding System!
Heike Obergantschnig says
My cats would love it. They wouldn’t stop until they get what they want.

Laura Palka says
My cats are natural hunters so I definitely think at least 1 will love this!
S Blake says
I have two cats who are big bug hunters. These would really increase their activity in the winter when the bugs aren’t as easily found!
Linda Szymoniak says
We have three cats. While I don’t think my senior girl, Moko, would likely use these, I think the other two – Arata (4 years old) and Kotoha (1-1/2 years) would absolutely LOVE these!
My senior cats would definitely enjoy this. They might be old, but they still like to hunt (inside the house).
Joan De Lurio says
i know one will, i think another will, and i hope the third will surprise me
My little hunters would love this.
I’ve got two cats that like to take their toy “kills” and leave them for me in the bedroom. I think they would really enjoy these toys. Another cat just likes to eat, and any exercise is good exercise!

My cat would love this….she eats much better when I find fun ways for her to “hunt” for her food.
I definitely think my cats would enjoy this. They are forever wanting to pounce on toys.

Katrina Rodriguez says
My cat is named Phoebe, she would love this!
i think Toby would love hunting for his kibble!
Brooke Kristen says
our cats would adore this! we’re grateful for the chance!
My parents’ cat would love this because he’s an indoor only cat; he doesn’t get to hunt outside!
I think mine would like it. They are players & love treats.
Mary Jo Krause says
I am sure they would be curious about it and give it a try.
Rita Spratlen says
I have 3 cats and they would love this!! Two of them are almost 6 months old and are getting into everything!! Thanks for the chance!!
Krystal Grohman says
I think my fur gang would love this. Maybe it will reduce the sibling fighting too.
sandy weinstein says
i think they would love it, gives them something to do, some exercise and use their brains.
My cat would LOVE this! He’s goes stir crazy this time of year when he can’t go outside (supervised) to hunt moles.
Mary Friedling says
I know Joe would love it. Pink, too. Squeaky, only if she can beat the other two to them. ?
Karen Baumgartner says
I think my boys would love this. I have never seen such playful cats as my current babies.
Helen Kotowske says
My older Siames mix cat love still loves his treats and loves to pounce on toys. This,Hunting Feeder would be good for him?
Susan Beamon says
Kaine likes toys. He chases and throws his small toys all over the house. He has some kickers, but would rather lay on them and kick his small mice instead. He loves to chase red dot, the laser toy. Eating is a different thing. He doesn’t like most wet food and a lot of dry either. This may improve his attention to his food.
I am very interested to see how this would work. I honestly don’t know how my cats would like this. If I win, I might start out using it for treats to see how it works out before trying to replace food bowls with it. I worry my bully might try to claim them all. i guess there needs to be some training when it comes to them.
My kitties would go crazy with joy over this. They get so bored in the winter and I’m always trying to think of activities to keep them entertained. Think this would keep them happy and engaged to see if they could find a treasure!
Vicki Andrew says
2 kitties, Shadow my oldest would not be interested, she likes her food brought and presented to her royal highness, but Reese my other kitty would love it. I can picture her tossing it into the air and having treats rain down on her
Pooky would love the hunt!
Toy + food, what’s not to LOVE!
Tracy Brewer says
My cats need exercise and love treats. They will love this.
This is a great variation on the game we play now- I throw kibbles and she runs to get them. Easy way to get her to exercise.
Ann Richter Hickox says
I think Ralphie would find it fun 🙂
Stevi Spiers says
My cat will spend HOURS playing with This! She’s an indoor cat who loves watching the birdies out the patio door.
laurie marciniak says
I know all 4 of my rescue fur babies will love it!!!
