Can I use ~ぐらい here or is it not needed?

The construction examples are weird too, using ねこ and ごはん for time nouns.

Yea - the construction examples used a fix set of words for all examples; I should probably remove those until there is a way for users to suggest words.

I am not positive, but I don't think it's commonly included since you are using this grammar structure to *specify* a time, when ぐらい/ごろ usually lends ambiguity to a time frame or amount.
