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.

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

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.

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.

Perfect for my vacuums

My two cats will inhale their food if fed from a bowl. I've been using the blue slimcat for a little under 2 years for my older of the two, and he's gotten very good at learning how to self regulate over the day with his food. (He gets high quality stuff that only calls for half a cup a day.) The younger of the two is getting the hang of it quickly, but isn't quite up there with the self regulating just yet, which is why I'm glad there's two settings for the size of holes. To combat the idea of cat food all over my carpet, I paired my Slimcat with an xs size litterbox (brand new, no litter used in it, obviously, lol) and it works great. I can clean out the box whenever it starts to look like it needs it, and the high sides keep the ball in one place and from escaping under furniture. For anyone else struggling with that, I highly recommend finding a small/kitten size literbox and putting it in there.

can't rush the treats

I love this ball, it can be adjusted to different sizes of food/treats and it takes my cat a little time to get them out instead of scarfing them all down all at once.

the best for us

Been using one for years, this is the only slow feeder that works for our cherubic kitty. She gets fed and we get to watch her adorably roll it around. Happy all around.

Lovin' Our Kitty Ball Feeder

We've been needing to get out cats (all five of them) on a healthier eating routine. I bought this ball to see if it would help. We've only had the ball for a couple of weeks, but all five of our cats have learned to use it. One even seems to prefer eating from the ball over her food bowl. The feeding ball definitely entertains all five of our cats and helps them slow down their eating as well. Each cat figured out how to use it on their own time. But all seemed to be using it after a week.

Love this thing!

Our newest cat was previously an outdoor cat living in a feral cat colony. They were fed erratically depending and all at the same time out of a large bowl, so he is incredibly food obsessed and eats way too fast. He was frustrated with this at first, but as long as I keep it on the easiest setting, it works well. I'd say it takes him 15-20 minutes to eat 2/3 cup of food, which is a massive improvement. It also gives my other two cats time to eat without him harassing them.. Ha! We've been using it for a few weeks, and it's gotten harder to turn/adjust; however, it's pretty cheap. If and when it falls apart, I'll probably spend more money on something of higher quality. I bought this to make sure he would actually use it and not throw a fit over having to work for his food, haha.

nice feeder but my cat is too smart!

this is a really nice feeder! but it’s been less than a day since my cat has used it and he already figured out how to open the top and get all his food. so that kind of defeats the purpose of using it anhmore haha!

Treats dispense WAY TOO FAST

I thought these would be a great toy for my kittens but the problem is that the holes are difficult to adjust so either all the treats come out within a few seconds or none come out at all. Which is very disappointing. I thought this would be the toy where the cats can play and only 1 will come out at a time, and if they want more they will have to push it around a little longer for it to dispense another treat. So no, I don't recommend this and regret that I wasted money on this...

Cats 'enjoy' it!

Got this for my oldest cat because he is slightly overweight. Figured make him work for some food. Both of my cats figured it out right away and has no problem with it. My oldest though...I caught him using it the one time and it was great! Even though he used as little energy as possible to get the ball to roll, lol. But, it's doing what I wanted and he's eating slower because of it.
