What do we do when either no player has any cards left in hand or has no plays they can make? The rules say the only time you draw up to 5 is the end of feeding phase.

From the rule book:

"After all abilities resolve, and any feeding resolves:
•Any empty Food Bowl is refilled with 4 random food cubes
•All players draw up to 5 cards in their hand"

Another way to read this would be: At the end of a player's turn, the player would:
1. refill any bowls to a minimum of 4 food cubes
AND
2. draw back up to 5 cards.

So at the end of each turn, the player will ALWAYS have 5 cards in their hand, reshuffling the discard pile if needed.

I think the rule is written in a way to account for the Feeding Phase not happening every turn. Turn order being: 1. Play Item 2. Play Cat 3. Resolve abilities 4. Feeding Phase (IF triggered) 5. Refill bowls/draw back up to 5 cards 6. End turn.

Hope that helps clear things up! Thank you!

Chris has the right idea! At the end of every players’ turn, you refill any empty bowls (which could have been emptied by abilities, or by Feeding), and ALL players refill up to 5 cards. Because Cats’ abilities are triggered when they move between bowls, a moving Kitten could allow its owner to play another Kitten even when it’s not their turn. So in that case, that player would also draw up to 5 even though it’s not their turn. Hence the note that *all* players refill their hands.

If there are no cards left to draw from your deck, the discard pile isn’t supposed to be reshuffled, however. Players should just continue to play out their cards until someone reaches 20 points, which should happen around that time if it hasn’t already. If you find that you’d prefer to reshuffle though, go for it! Have fun!
