The Problem In a busy household, especially when there are shared responsibilities for pet care, it can be very difficult to coordinate pet feeding. Issues such as pet obesity, malnutrition, anxious behavior, and even food aggression can result as a consequence of inconsistent feeding behavior.
JustFedBowl It’s a beautiful pet bowl with a built-in timer that tells you exactly when your pet was last fed. When someone in the household puts food in the bowl, they simply press the button to start the timer. The LCD display tells you exactly how much time has passed since your pet was last fed.
Single Button Function The JustFedBowl is very easy to use and requires no programming to get started. The only task that pet caretakers have is to press the button at the time of feeding. That's it! The patent-pending built-in timer will then reset and continue its task of telling you how much time has passed since your pet was last fed.
Removable Insert The JustFedBowl is very easy to clean. The design allows for the stainless insert to be easily removable for a quick hand wash or machine wash cleaning anytime.
Classic Form The JustFedBowl is familiar as it is not a dramatic redesign of the contemporary pet bowl. The aesthetic style of the JustFed Bowl is neutral and will complement any interior. It is a well-made, high quality pet bowl.
The alternative to the JustFedBowl would be using a big and bulky automatic pet feeder. Not only are these feeders significantly more expensive than typical pet bowls, but they also seem to be prone to breaking. They are usually complicated to set up, and have a limitation when it comes to wet food.
The biggest reason most people don't use auto pet feeders today is because they are impersonal. Pet owners today consider their pets to be a member of their family. Family members do not get fed by auto feeders! Most pet owners look forward to feeding their pets as this is an essential part of bonding.
Risks and challenges
It is 120% true when they say "hardware is hard". The main challenge we are facing is mass production and delivery. Our ultimate goal is to make sure that every bowl from the batch will deliver that awesome experience we've been working so hard on. We did our best predicting estimates on large scale production and planning shipments, but this is the most common part where unforeseen risks are likely to pop up. We are lucky enough to partner with experienced companies to bring all the risks down and to deliver a perfect product with perfect timing.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
