  • My cats LOVE these -- but I lose them easily

    By on

    These are SO great. They're perfect for beginner cats who are learning to puzzle feed. USE TAPE TO TAPE UP THE HOLES SO THAT IT'S MORE OF A CHALLENGE! With all three small holes open, this ball rolls generously enough that the food will be gone too fast. I keep the ball on the smallest hole possible, with only one that's not taped up. A tbl spoon of dry cat food will be gone in about 10-15 minutes with my smartest kitten. I prefer to feed small increments of dry food throughout the day so my cats are actively "hunting" throughout the house instead of begging and going nuts during meal time like they did before when I fed twice a day. Emphasis on SMALL increments though. I would not feed a regular These are SO great. They're perfect for beginner cats who are learning to puzzle feed.

Emphasis on SMALL increments though. I would not feed a regular portion of food in conjunction with this ball if you don't want fat kitties. This is also a decent treat ball but I'd prefer to hand treat my cats. The only problem is these are SUPER easy to lose since they can roll under couches and beds and other furniture. I have probably owned, in total, six or seven of these because they're so cheap. Currently I know I have 4-5, and have no idea where the others currently are. … more

  • Wonderful!

    By on

    I have three kitties, momma and two kittens. It took Matty kitten 2 days, Mikey kitten 4 days and Gracie momma 7 days. Mom had been throwing up often, and not once since I got these. I got 3 balls, filled them, put them down and spilled a bit of food around them. Each time I would walk past I would shake out a little more. Always with them watching. Just be patient. They are not eating as much, so will not be overweight. I want to keep extras on hand for when these break or wear out.

  • Well Worth the Money

    By on

    I bought this and the Catit food maze for my kitty. He eats his food way way too quickly and gorges himself so I figured a mixture of the two would help with that. I thought the Catit maze would be a hit for him and paid a lot of money but it turned out this was his favorite over that. So simple and he has so much fun with it. It has slowed his eating and it has also stopped him from waking me in the night to feed him. He can bounce this around in the living room in the night for a snack and I get to sleep soundly. This little food ball has saved my sanity.

  • My cats & kitten love these!

    By on

    This is a big hit with my two adult cats and one kitten. I wanted something to intrigue them and make them work for their food so they are not scarfing down their food so fast. They each approach this feeder differently but get the same results so they enjoy it and the food that comes out. I have two of these. It does get a little messy when one of them decides to smack the ball around but nobody is hungry at the time, because then food is left on the floor for awhile. Eventually someone will come by and eat the fallen pieces.

  • Works well enough, but quality could be better

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    For anyone who's had experience with these types of feeders, this one is pretty standard. The hole size comes in a good range. Depending on how clean of a eater the cat is, it might make a mess, but all these feeders do that. What a great price! Although that comes with some more cons. There is a sliding switch sort of thing that allows you to adjust the hole size and then fix it in place. But it doesn't fix well enough, since the switch is pretty flimsy plastic, and the hole size can adjust a bit during regular play. Or if you have a cat that's so cat she tries to stick her claws into the hole to pry the feeder open. Also, the top somehow popped off in the first session.

I think I'll have to supervise this feeder every once in a while to make sure its challenging enough. On the spectrums, my cat is very active, confident, and clever so she got the concept within seconds. For timid cats not particularly motivated by food, I can see this feeder being ignored, so I wouldn't bother. Also, I'm not sure why this product is being recommended for weight loss? It's for enrichment! There's barely any exercise involved. Use portion control, just the same way you would with a regular food bowl. … more

  • Great, but not for every cat

    By on

    My formatting got botched! My apologies. Pros: -stimulates general activity level and reduces desire to feed mindlessly (boredom eating) -adjustable holes to go from training mode into expert mode -easy to learn -It works! 100% -cats become much more alert and seem to generally be much more active and engaged with their environment Cons: -requires a lot of initial training and encouragement -shy cats need extra encouragement and training, consistently -need to be mindful and extremely aware that cats do not reduce caloric intake too drastically -constant food mess and clean up -if all of your cats are not overweight, this can adversely affect the normal weight cats too.

I have not found any other alternative to this device that works this well. … more

  • Solution for Overweight Cats

    By on

    Our vet recommended we purchase these feeder balls for our overweight cats. While we haven't seen improvement in their weight yet (it's only been 2 weeks) they don't seem to mind batting them around. It took 2 days for them to figure out how to get the food out. My only complaint would be that I trip over them at least once a day but that's something I can live with if my cats are a healthy weight!

  • Time to lose some pounds!

    By on

    My pets love this treat ball. Instead of treats I put their food in it, so they have to work for their meal. I only had one problem with this order, they put the balls in with a bucket of cat litter and two out of three got broken. But they enjoy the one that didn't.

  • Fun for Fatties

    By on

    I got this to try for a couple of my chubbier kitties. They figured out how it works pretty quickly and it keeps them entertained. The only problem is it needs a locater. I'll put it down in the evening then next morning the hunt is on to find where it ended up. I plan to order another one.

  • Cats and I Love it

    By on

    I love the fact that the hole can be adjusted for different kibble sizes, and also for faster or slower eating. Has helped allow me to still feed a little kibble to keep costs down, while still keeping my cat from eating until she throws up.
