Why are we building Nibbles?
The story behind Nibbles is quite simple. Jonathan wanted to feed his dog while he was working late and Justin wanted a way to stop his cat from waking him up in the morning. We looked at the market and found no products to our liking, so we thought why not build one?
We know a lot of other pet owners are facing the same problems. We hope Nibbles will help pet owners stay connected to their pets while also being able to maintain a healthy feeding schedule.
We know having a pet is a lot of work, so in the future we would love if Nibbles can create an ideal feeding schedule based on your pet's characteristics.
