Catit Treat Ball Cat Toy
Cat Prince does not like to work for food.
This is a great product--well-made, no rough edges. The concept is also good: kitty moves toy around and gets rewarded for this behavior by getting a treat. Now, the plot thickens. Introduce toy to 9 year old lazy kitty. Watch kitty watch toy. Model correct procedure for kitty. Wait. Repeat. Try again later. Kitty sits next to toy, crying piteously. Tough love Mom refuses to do kitty's work. Models desired activity again. Kitty cries -- for a long time. Mom's frazzled nerves give out. She removes toy and hides it. The next day, Kitty's brother, a 40 pound flat-coated retriever, finds toy. Moves it all over the house. Kitty follows, eating up the released treats. End result not as expected, but exercise is achieved! A good time was had by all! Buy this toy and see what happens. Judith

Great idea. Cats love it. Hard to keep clean, though.
Just as my review summary states, my cats love it. My only drawback, and for me it's an important drawback, is that it cannot be disassembled for cleaning. The only way to clean it is to fill it with water/soap, shake, rinse repeatedly, and allow to air dry. The two hemispheres should have been made to screw together.

After cats figure it out it is fun for them
I do like this product. Sometimes it takes my cats a while to figure it out-ok they are not super brilliant.

Keeps the kitties busy
My kitty has already learned that this ball has treats One more thing to keep my cats happy. I like the idea of them having to work for their treats

Both my cats loved it. I had a problem because one of my cats is so petite that I have to break the treats in half for her. Of course, the smaller pieces came out first, but my larger cat was the one that ate them. My little one never had a chance. I did think of this ahead of time and bought 2 - one for small cat and one for large cat. But the small pieces would come out first and my little one...I don't know if she ever got one. Anyway, its a cute toy and clearly fun fun for them.

Great to stimulate cats' minds
My 5 cats LOVE this treat ball! It is pretty easy for cats to figure out, and the treats also dispense pretty easy (maybe a little too easy because my cats go through the treats quick). It's a little hard to clean, though.

Great for food motivated cats
Great inexpensive toy for dispensing dry food. Our adult cat had a similar (little bigger) toy before so he knew what to do with it to get the food. It is easy to load the ball with dry food and regulate the opening for dispensing. He pushes it all over the house and gets his reward. The only negative is that the ball is small, and after few days of using it we can't find it.
