Choosing a LickiMat for your Cat
All cats are unique and different in their own way - just like humans. No cat likes to have its whiskers touch the side of a bowl when feeding. This causes 'whisker stress" in some cats and is the main reason many cats pick their food out of a bowl and place it on the floor before feeding.
LickiMats are vet designed and provide a perfect feeding surface for cats. LickiMats allow you to spread out the cat food or treat on the mat surface or press the cat food or treat into the mat surface, encouraging your cat to crouch and feed more naturally.
The rubber tips of LickiMat gently scrape and stimulate your cat's tongue whilst feeding or snacking. This increases saliva protection, improves oral hygiene, protects teeth and gums, and most importantly soothes your cat by releasing endorphins.
The pockets of the LickiMat challenge your cat to extract the raw, wet, dry or liquid food or treat as a reward, enriching their feeding experience.
Keep in mind that you can use any LickiMat as a replacement for your cat feeding bowl.
So many LickiMats, which one to choose?
Selecting the right LickiMat for your cat comes down to:
- what you feed your cat;
- what treats your cat likes to eat
The size of cat does not really matter. We have very large cats as well as kittens using LickiMats.
Casper OR Felix
Designed specifically for cats to better emulate natural feeding and to provide variety on the same surface. These surfaces provide a varied challenge for cats to "chew out" the food or treat, much like they would in the wild, enriching the feeding experience.
SloMo mats are designed to combine dry, wet, raw and especially soft or liquid cat foods and treats at the same time without creating a mess. Like all other Licki Mats, they can be used for treats or used as a complete and elegant feeder.
