I thought these little fish tails would move and change position as my cats moved around looking for their treats but they don't. It's tight to get them in and then they stay. It's not much of a puzzle to get the treats. I'd hoped for it to be more of a challenge or more fun for them.
My girl loves to pick her crunchies from her bowl, so she immediately knew what to do with this! Not sure if it truly slows her down, but it's totally cute to see her dig around the fishies. Our boy gets it, but he is less of a crunchy fanatic. Neither of the cats have bitten the tails, it hasn't been knocked over and for the price, I think it's a good quality. We have it in the middle of the room so we can watch them enjoy it!
This toy is very hard to put together there’s scratches and chips on the plastic the cats do not seem interested in it at all and for $24.95 it is definitely not worth!! I believe I’m going to return mine
This is a good food puzzle for beginners. It is the first experience for my three cats, and two of them love it. Our third cat is not impressed by much anyway. The cats can see where they need to move the pieces of food to get them into the tray. I would recommend this as a first food puzzle for cats.
My cat chewed off every single one of these tails and I kept finding pieces of this thrown up all over the house!! Good thing he was able to throw them up and that it didn’t result in something more serious requiring surgery!!! Please reconsider buying this or make sure to put it away if you are not monitoring your cat while it’s being used.
Shadow was really not thrilled with this puzzle and it was too easy for him.
I was excited to get this for my cats to play with but soon after they started playing with it, even though there was still food, they started chewing off the silicone fish tails! Some crumbles even fell off. We threw the fish tails away and just use the base as an extra food dish:(
My 3 cats (bengal and 2 Devon Rex) all eat from it. It slows them down enough to allow the slower eater to get his fill. No issues of them eating the fish tails as others have commented on. The only issue is I struggled getting it put together as I have painful hands.
This is a real nice slow feeder or treat dish. I'm real happy with it. The fish are rubberylike and "give" when the cat goes for the food or treats. The fish aren't a hard plastic. I'm glad I bought and going to buy another for my other cat. They are a nice size for an adult cat, if you buy the bigger one. The smaller one is for kittens, I believe, or maybe an elderly cat.
My cat eats too fast and sometimes pukes up her meals. I used this to help her take her time and play with her food. I think it gives her some stimulation and satisfaction to work for her food.
