When your life revolves around napping in the sun, it's easy to add an extra pound or two. But the vets have spoken: 50% of American cats need to slim down! The PetSafe SlimCat Interactive Feeder lets your cat play away the pounds while working for his dinner or treats. Pack the SlimCat feeding ball with your fur baby's kibble, and it distributes an adjustable amount of food as your cat bats and pounces.
SlimCat can be used by all cats and particularly overweight cats can benefit from the interaction.
By providing smaller portions of food throughout the day, it helps to maintain optimum weight as well as improve your cat’s digestion.
Improves behavioral problems such as excessive meowing, scratching or aggression.
Holds 2/3 cup of dry food or treats.
Dishwasher safe, BPA-free plastic.
†Capacity is calculated by total volume. When using container, choose a capacity greater than what you need to prevent overfilling and spills.
I have a cat that has Pica and she is young and needs to be entertained constantly. Having this ball filled with treats has been teaching her that when she plays with stuff rather than chewing on stuff, she gets a reward. Also I have a very overweight cat and this helps him slow down tremendously when he eats. Very cool!
Keeps my chubby boy busy

I will admit I was a little skeptical about the size of the ball in relation to the size of the holes. But after a little experimentation, I found the right size to slowly release his dry food. And Malcolm is completely focused on it, keeps him moving and allows him to eat throughout the day. I know he loves because he'll push it toward me and ask for it to be refilled!
Wishful thinking. Poor design.

My cat has been using a less well made food ball for quite some time. After it had a trip down the stairs, I decided to replace it. This is well made but very poor design. There are 3 medium holes to release food, or three large, depending on how you set it. Three is two too many. And there is no way to plug them.
I may just as well put the food in her bowl for all the exercise/opportunity to hunt that she would get if I kept it.
Better than I expected

I like how easy it is to fill this feeder. The ability to adjust the holes is very convenient! I bought two of these, one for each of my male kitties. They both love rolling these feeders around and getting every last kibble out.
Super easy to use!

This was the first interactive feeder I've purchased and I'm so glad. It's extremely easy to use & adjust to the size you need. It's perfect if you're looking into interactive feeders but don't want to spend a huge amount to try it with your cats!
Simple solution to the age old problem

It’s amazing it took me so long to explore cat kibble dispensing toys when I use them exclusively for my dog! Prevent speed eating, squabbling, and keep them busy - yes please! This one is easy to fill, and the adjustable sizing on the size is awesome. My only complaint is that one of my cats is clever enough to work off the lid some days!
Works great for my cat

This has worked nicely for my cat and his sized food. I started him with the holes open all the way, plus the top off for him to figure it out. Once he got the hang of it consistently, I put the top on and just have the side holes open all the way. I have it in a rectangle box lid on the surface where he eats only to contain the pieces of hard food he leaves behind...
Perhaps a puzzle she enjoys??

My cat really hates all the puzzle toys I’ve DIY-ed so far for her, so I decided to see whether a non MacGuyvered puzzle feeder would go over better. She seems to like it much better so far!! Certainly easier to use for both of us.
Great, but not ideal for smart cats.

I have two kittens, it took my kitten only a few days to figure out the ball and it works really well for keeping them happy and busy. Unfortunately - my male kitten figured out how to open the ball himself and spill kibble everywhere after a week. Perfect for keeping my kittens busy, but I tape it the top shut now.
Kickin it around

I got this for my 2 cat house. We had previously bought a puzzle bowl and that didn't seem to slow down our more ravenous cat. We got this is hopes that it would be a better option. I love this feeder. It keeps them thinking and gives our more bowl shy cat a better chance to get food. It does make a bit of noise at night but I've slept through it so far.
