hunting and preying is part of cats natural behaviour
Cats need to hunt to get their food. It stimulates their brain and help them eat at a slower pace. In nature, cats would normally eat between 10 – 15 small meals. Giving free access to food is not good for them because they dont feel satiety fast enough and this can lead to problems like weight and barfing issues.
One of the main reason your dog digs in the backyard is because they usually burry part of their prey when they hunt. This is part of their natural behaviour and the main reason the Aïkiou replicates digging. Our products let them experience their natural behaviour and spend their energy on their food instead of your personal belongings.
