My cats love puzzles. Even Maggie, who doesn’t like treats, likes to get the treats out for Murdock. I put minnows in this and Murdock loves them. He did have a problem because it’s hard for him to get his huge paws into the openings. His solution is to pick it up in his mouth by latching onto the opening and shaking the fishies out.
I honestly wasn't expecting this to work out. I got it for my older cat, and she's never played with puzzle toys or interactive toys. Even laser pointers don't interest her. She also only showed interest in dried fish flakes as treats, and that would make a mess in this thing. So imagine my surprise when I a.) found some solid treats she liked (Greenies Smartbites tuna flavor), and b.) adding even a few to the maze has her undivided attention until they're gone. She loves this toy! She sits by it when it's empty. Even the new kitten is getting in on it, and neither loses focus until the maze is complete. I've tried both variations of the interior maze, the easier one and the harder one, and they're both a success. I love watching them solve the problem of which hole to use, their adorable little paws fishing around between the obstacles. It's extremely cute. Like all cat toys, this will be hit-or-miss depending on how food motivated your cat is (didn't think mine was!), and if the struggle of rooting around is too annoying for them to put up with. It may be a case of finding the right treat, or it just may not be for them.
It’s probably our hard to impress cats, but they had no interest and couldn’t be bothered to get the treats out. Will donate to my daughter’s cat who I believe is smarter than mine.
My boy cat has a problem of scarfing down his food, then bullying his siblings for food. I have tried a variety of slow feeder bowls and he still takes large bites and finishes first. I kid you not the first time he used this, it took him 45 minutes to finishing his dinner. And he never lost interest. He would take breaks to lick his paws to get the kibble dust/crumbs. But love this! Buying another for my other cat.
