Because a cat's whiskers are so exquisitely sensitive it can be terribly irritating to a cat if their food or water bowls are narrow enough to cause the whiskers touch the sides of the bowl. You may just assume they are just being picky about their food but they could actually be uncomfortable with the feeding dish – not the food itself.
In short making sure that your cat has an adequately sized food bowl could make a tremendous difference in how comfortable it is when eating their food.
Have you ever observed your cat using his or her paw to scoop the food out of the dish? This is could be an indication that your feline companion could be experiencing whisker stress. Similarly many cats fed from a deep or narrow bowl will sometimes only graze on the top layer of food avoiding the food on the bottom because he or she is not comfortable pushing their sensitive face into a tight bowl. Imagine what forcing those delicate instruments into a tiny food dish must feel like.
Simply put Whisker Stress is caused when a cat’s sensitive whiskers touch the sides of the bowl.
I have to admit when I first heard about “whisker stress” I was a bit skeptical and thought it was a marketing scheme to sell fancy food dishes but then I chose to investigate further. I had seen this happening with our two cats. One of our cats sometimes pulled the dry or wet food pieces out of the bowl. At first I thought he was just being a hungry pig. What was actually happening is that bowl was way too small he would rather eat the food outside of the dish rather than try to cram his face inside of it and aggravate his sensitive whiskers. Our other cat was asking for dry food every ten minutes. Turns out that she was not just being “a hungry nuisance”; but was eating as much as he could from the dish until his whiskers became stressed.
So he would eat for a few minutes and then stop eating. I would pick up the dish and add more food for later then put it away. Then he would come back 20 min later asking for more food. I would give him the full dish and he would repeat the same behavior! I know now that he would stop eating as soon as his whiskers were stressed. The most finicky eater would hang around intently watching while the evening food was being prepared. But when his dinner was offered he would stare at the bowl then walk away. Again the bowl was too tiny for him to eat comfortably.
I had labelled their behaviour as fussy eaters instead of seeing what was really happening! I was not aware of the fact that a cat’s whiskers are so superbly programmed that if they move even 1/2000th of the width of a human hair a signal is triggered and sent to the cat’s brain. When the food level was too low they were forced to put their faces down into the bowl causing their whiskers to brush up against the sides. It was clearly uncomfortable to all of them.
