In less than a week, veterinarian Liz Bales’ “NoBowl Feeding System” for cats has raised more than $40,000.

Prototyped at makerspace NextFab and (the controversial) Just 3D Print, the gadget is meant to bring out your cat’s inner hunter by making it search for its food.

Bales is a member at the exclusive 1241 Carpenter Studios maker and artist space — the group has a running wait list because when members join, they usually don’t leave, said David Krupnick, who runs the space with his father, inventor Steven Krupnick.

But the Krupnicks liked Bales and her project so much that they found the space for her. She moved into the building in October, alongside children’s book illustrators, bookbinders and DreamIt startup LIA Diagnostics. They also made a small investment in the project, David Krupnick told us.
