My indoor cat is a male of 10kg and he is devouring his croquettes very fast so he is consistently asking for food. He never had anything similar to this and he is very lazy so I was hesitating but now I confirm that since I bought it, my cat eats way less as he has to “fight” for his food and he figured out how to use it immediately on his own! It’s quite steady and suitable for big cats! I strongly recommend it!
My cats have always preferred cable ties and hair ties to normal toys, and similarly with food toys, I dont often waste my money. I bought this one years ago though, and the only negative was I broke the plastic balls over time. I wish I could replace them, because a little wet food in the last remaining ball equals a good hour of paw dipping and distraction
Excellent. Our cat loves it and it makes him take longer to eat his meals.
He has no bother with most of the "puzzles" on it, but cannot get the food out of the ball shapes. They Shouldve had 2 that were different/simpler.
Some of other cats can get then out of the balls tho.
My cats love it. Enjoy eating snacks and dry foot of it, great fun for them and let them wnjoy food longer. If they want food they sit next to it to let us know:)
The only thing they do not use is the bowls. Ragdolls paws are too big for small holes:)
Disappointed with my cat's reaction. He will retrieve treats from the zigzag and wave areas but only made one attempt to get food from the bells and didn't like the experience. The thought using his tongue to get treats out did not occur to him. Have tried to encourage him but he is not interested in making the effort.
Stan was trained on homemade activity boards with sunken yoghurt pots & stacked toilet roll tubes. He likes his food & quickly got the hang of them so was progressed onto this. Thought he might struggle as he's not exactly dainty but BOOM!! Was straight in on all the challenges, no problems at all. Funny as he's not into regular cat toys, but this was like watching a master at work. Does slow him down enough for our other furrball to enjoy his food in peace.
It improves cognitive function and dexterity. One can keep an eye on elderly cats in declining health by simply observing how they use this feeder. In fact, my cats are all rather obsessed with it, they prefer to have their biscuits hidden in and around the board as opposed to thrown into their bowls. Also, and just as important, is that the cats have to work for their food and are less likely to gobble the lot up in seconds, thus resulting in far less vomiting afterwards. Brilliant!
My kitten loves playing with this activity interactive games, using cat treats they love fishing for them as an incentive.
I find my kitten likes this but my full grown cat finds his paws a little big to get into all the areas.
We had only re-homed Mary for a few days when this activity was delivered, we bought it as she was using one at the Cats Protection Adoption Centre.
She loves us to sit with her to do this, she completes all, just finding the bowls more difficult.
This has been a great buy, it keeps her entertained, builds our friendship, is easy to clean and looks neat.
I bought this for my old moggies some 6 years ago and they never really cottoned on and I put it in the shed. However I now have two tonkinese kittens who are very intelligent and playful, I showed them what to do once with the globe spheres and they got it immediately, but today they have worked out the hardest compartments too. They are at the 'hollow leg' stage so I think I will be feeding half their biscuits on this from now on, even though they are only 15 weeks;Need more complex one now!
I love this. My cats have all their meals on it. The tom cat is a greedy fast eater and his mum is a slow eater. I used to find that he would scoff all his and then go and raid her bowl.
Now I have a divider down the middle of this feeder and hers is just on the edge of her side but his meal is distributed amongst all the different puzzles. It slows down his eating and is more satisfying. Always use Iams. Easy to wash in dishwasher. A fabulous product. Well recommended.
This activity board is great! My cat purrs while he works away at trying to get treats out of the different sections! There is a good mixture of easier and harder areas on the board. It seems strong and looks like it will survive being pulled about by my 6kg monster-cat! Really speedy dispatch from Zooplus, couldn't be happier!
