New in the How Much Cat Care Help Do We Really Need category: A “smart” bowl for cats. It lets you know whether you’ve already fed your cat and how much she ate. And when the cat food’s running low, the smart bowl will use Amazon’s Dash Replenishment service to order more.
All you need to make this purrsonal assistant work is an Obe ProBowl or two, WiFi and, of course, your phone. You’ll need the ProBowl app, too.
Food For Thought From A Cat Bowl
While your cats will probably let you know if you’ve forgotten to feed them, the ProBowl provides some other information that the cats might not share.
The whisker-friendly bowl is dishwasher safe and has a smart base that connects to your WiFi and phone. A ring on the base lights up when you’ve put the correct amount of food in the bowl and changes from green to red to indicate the cat has been fed.
Last year, ProBowl won Nestle Purina’s first Pet Care Innovation Prize. It also won a 2016 Red Dot Product Design Award. The first bowls are expected to ship this spring.
