I got this for my curious Maine Coon (2 years old) about a month ago. He loves boxes so I figured it would be a hit. Well, yes it is! He plays with it daily whether it has treats in it or not. He has double paws so it took awhile for him to stick his paws in the openings but he’s all over it now. I just ordered a second one for back up. It’s such a simple thing, but very effective. Drop 5 or 6 treats in & he’s happily engaged.
Only had this for a day, but it keeps my kitty’s attention. Very treat motivated, and this provides a good outlet to keep her playing. Was concerned about whether cardboard would hold up for play material, but seems to be doing the job. Also I appreciated the fun presentation provided by the instructions! Some assembly required. Best to watch the video on how to fold and insert the “guts” of the puzzle into the box, and be careful with the material. Occasionally my cat struggles with getting food over some spots. So far I’ve been sticking with level one, but I’m looking forward to trying out the higher levels in the near future. I will consider buying from this company again if I decide to buy similar toys. Overall very pleased with the product.
Chose this one in case my kitty didn't like it, since I would feel less bad tossing out cardboard than a big plastic thing. It took her a while to learn how to play with it, but now she LOVES it and has been using the same one for over two years. Just now ordering a new one for my newly adopted second cat so they won't fight over it.
OMG, ths is the most wonderful toy. My kitty is overweight and just getting her to move at all instead of sleeping is a challenge. WELL...she LOVES this toy. I get it out every morning. Inside I put 3 catnip filled strawberries I bought here along with a handful of Temptation treats.. OH MY goodness. It keeps her busy looking for all that stuff for a long time. Later on after she has gotten everything out I put it away until the next morning. I don't want her to get tired of it. She watches me setting it up every morning and just loves it. I highly, highly reccommend this toy.
Instructions to put together were unclear and resulted in the cardboard bending in a way it wasn’t supposed to, but the damage was done and one of the holes was slightly obstructed because of it. Nothing to keep the cardboard from sliding around, making it even more difficult to use.
The only toys my cat has ever cared about are small things she can pick up and fling around. But now that she's a senior, she can't be bothered to chase them. Worrying she might be bored, I've tried just about every kind of cat plaything. She's very food motivated so I thought a puzzle toy like this might intrigue her. Even with her favorite treats inside, she gave it a few sniffs and walked away. I gave it to my neighbor, whose cat immediately pounced on it and had a great time. So it probably is a good toy. You'd just never know it from my cat.
We've only had this for a day, but my cat loves it. She used to make this game up on her own (playing with toys from the other side of the door, etc). but now she has a formal game. I have tried so many toys, but they were not for her. She took right to this one. She'd play for awhile, walk about 3 feet away, then turn around and start playing again. I'm so glad because I worry about her getting bored.
I did not declaw MILO; I rescued him. This is the first declawed cat I have had and did not realize he would not enjoy this toy. Toy is not bad but not for certain cats.
My kitty loves this challenge and is getting better and faster to get the treats. However he also is tearing cardboard box up. He’s very aggressive when treats are the reward! Lol.
The puzzle box doesn’t work well with cats with no claws. They can’t get the treats out. I had to modify the box by cutting the holes to the floor level, in order for them to get the treats out! Otherwise they can’t grab the treats with their paws.
