Questions & Answers

How do you open this thing? Trying to figure out how to get the 2 halves to come apart?
Answer by ChewyAug 06, 2018
This interactive cat feeder does not open into two halves. This opens by turning and releasing the compartment lid. Adjust the hole size to allow one piece of food to pass through easily. To adjust the hole size, slide open the small lock mechanism conveniently located on the side of the SlimCat, and rotate the top of the SlimCat to the desired hole size. Then slide back the lock mechanism.

my cat's food is blue buffalo which is very small pellets so what's the smallest you can make the hole(s)
Answer by ChewyOct 15, 2020
The opening for this product will measure approximately 1 inch when fully adjusted. This product is compatible with most dry foods in all sizes and hold up to 2/3 cups of dry kibble or treats.

How can I effectively clean this without a dishwasher? I see that it doesn't come apart into two halves, so how would I scrub it?
Answer by ChewyJun 29, 2022
The SlimCat can be cleaned by hand using a scrubber or sponge. You can sluff the sponge inside and move it around, then pull it back out. You can also soak it in warm soapy water for a few minutes, then rinse it.

What's the diameter?
Answer by ChewyJul 23, 2018
This interactive cat feeder has a diameter of 3.25 inches.

Slows Galvin down

My cat is a Hoover vacuum cleaner when it comes to food. I use a ‘puzzle’ feeder and this blue slim cat ball to slow down his eating. It did not take long for him to figure out rolling the ball releases goid. The larger holes are fine for releasing Royal Canin Satiety kibbles.

PetSafe Slimcat

I love the concept that the cat will roll the small ball while getting some exercise & the treats or food will dispense from the openings & you can adjust how much food is dispensed. However, my cat won't use it - he waits for me to roll the ball around & then he eats the food!!!! So now he just goes over to the ball & waits - I have stopped rolling the ball for him!!!!

Adjustable big holes

Cat kibble is small and easily comes out of the many large holes. The hole sizes are adjustable to a point. It helped to tape a hole or two. Lazy cats hide the ball, but keeps them from gobbling food and barfing.

Works as intended but my cat is piiiissed

So I’ve used various “reach inside to get food” puzzle feeders. And when it’s treat time, I lob the little Temptations kibbles across the floor hard enough that she definitely burns more calories chasing after them. My cat’s also smart enough to learn sit, stay, fetch (on her own), and likes to open doors when she thinks she’s alone. So I thought, hey, a treat ball must be a good marriage between the two for her morning kibble, right? Well, it works as intended, 5 stars there. The little holes allow various pieces to get through and will work for future kibble sizes, and it seems like it’ll be easier to clean than some alternatives. And she definitely understands how it works. She even humored me a few times by seeming to go “yeah yeah, hit the ball, get the food, I get it.” She always leaves some dry kibble to snack on throughout the day and into the night after her wet food; therefore I went to bed, confident that it’d all be gone by morning. Nope, seems like she’d rather starve than be obligated to use the ball since her way of cat-like rebelling is to pretend to be too helpless or stupid to figure things out (food puzzles and even some toys) and then end up bored with normal toys. Dumped the remaining food out onto the mat for the time being, but I side eyed her with a “we’re gonna revisit this later, you betcha; stand by” because my way is “then I guess this is how you’re gonna eat now, my friend.” Next attempt is going to be a mix of catnip and “you want treats? use the ball” so we’ll see how it goes.

Angelina loves it!

Angelina figured it out very quickly. She has always eaten her food too fast and then vomited. She’s also always hungry! All night! We have hopes that we will be able to sleep.

Fantastic for dogs!

I originally bought this for my cat but have ended up using it for my dog as it is great for her meal times! She was eating her food in like 15 seconds and this ball slows her down. I use it for every meal now and have already bought 2 more - one to keep at my mom's when we're visiting her, and a backup as her current one is getting worn out!

Holes are too big

My vet recommended I get this for my very active new 7-month-old kitten. He can get all the treats out in 30 seconds so it's not doing the job of keeping him busy. The big holes are too big and let the treats out too quickly. The smaller holes are too small for the Greenies to get out so that doesn't work either. It's too easy for him and doesn't provide the challenge to get the food out that I wanted. I was hoping this would be a good solution but it's not working for us.

Finnicky Toy

I found that the ball doesn't do a great job at staying in the opening you have set it to be so kibble will fall out way too easily since it will switch from the small opening to the large opening as it moves across the floor.

Not even slightly...

The toy is well made. Two stars for that. Can't give more bc my boy rated it two paws down. William is smart, 2 yrs old. (Learned Fetch in a week. He's part Maine Coon). Loves his treats, compulsively curious, yet couldn't get him to touch this thing. Filled it, left a short trail of treats to it, then showed him how to roll it to get a treat. He sniffed it, walked away. I tried several more times, and interactively playing him/it. Nope.

My Cat Loves It

My cat is a cookie monster. He loves his treats and will scarf them all up, as quick as I put them down. I swear, he barely chews them. I thought this interactive ball would slow him down, a bit and it does. Now, he must work for his treats and can no longer inhale them quite so fast. I load the ball with a bunch of treats, in the morning and he goes to it, throughout the day. Purrfect.
