Simply fill the center compartment with food or treats and it will automatically disperse into different tunnels where it must be teased out. The non-slip rubber rim keeps the feeder in place as your cat eats and explores. Trixie Cat Activity Strategy Game Tunnel Feeder is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.

Screw open the lid of the food compartment.
Turn the adjustable pin all the way to the top.
Fill the compartment completely with dry cat food.
Hold the Tunnel Feeder sideways in a horizontal position. Turn the adjustable pin back downwards so far that the storage areas for the 3 tunnels and the 3 tubes are filled and no more food crumbs are trickling down.
Place the Tunnel Feeder at the desired location.
Refill the food storage compartment completely with food again and close the lid. The cat can now pry the food out of the tubes with its paws and feed at its own chosen pace through active exercise.
Tip: Should a piece of food get jammed in the food storage compartment, twist the pin as far down as is necessary to clear the jam.
I bought this for my chonk of a cat. She literally inhales her food like she's never eaten before, but it's entirely obvious that she has eaten plenty in her life.
It has helped to slow her down TREMENDOUSLY and she treats it like a toy!! It took a few treats and some coaxing to get her to use it, but now that she does she eats much slower and eats less, and is getting to a healthier weight now :)
First feeder that has interested my cats
on Nov 20, 2020
I've tried DIY (treats in empty cardboard-based egg cartons) and smaller feeders before, they haven't loved those. This they dig! Although I don't use it as the only dry food feeder. I take a handful of dry food and some treats and distribute it in the canals and they like digging those out. I don't think dry food trickled from the top reservoir smoothly.
Not the best design
on Sep 27, 2020
I like the idea of getting the food out of the tunnels, but the design is a bit bulky and the base too narrow. Once he gets the food out of the tunnel, he struggles to eat it from the base because he just ends up pushing the food around and its hard for him to get it when it goes into the corners outside the tunnels. The plastic is also not cut too well and so I worry it hurts him when he rubs against it to get the food. Good concept, just needed executed a bit better
Owner good/cat not so much
on Sep 18, 2020
I thought it was a really good idea, my cat not so much. I bought it because he sometimes gobbles down his food so fast. And if we would be out for a bit of time I thought it would stretch out his meal further. But, he works on it a bit and then I think he gets bored or annoyed with it, and he is only 5 years old. But, on the whole, OK, works as it should.
Good, but dish around too small
on Oct 5, 2020
Overall it’s great at making my bigger kitty slow down while eating and gives her something to do. However, the dish around where they pull the kibble into, is so small that the kibble ends up all over the floor instead of contained within the intended rim.
disappointment in slow feeder brain teaser for cats
on Sep 5, 2020
Perhaps I did not play enough with my cats to show them how to use this, but despite an introduction they were almost unable to get the crunchies into the holes and onto the tray, could barely eat, were frustrated, the openings were too uncomfortable for their faces, the whole thing was flimsy anyway. We are not going to use this again.
Cute, fun activity for the cats

Cute, fun activity for the cats. The lid is a little tricky to get threaded on and may have been better as a snap on lid. The cats love it though and it slows their eating down. I have a cat that loves to eat food by the mouthfuls and them vomit it up. Since I have been putting their food in here he has not yet vomited.
Not as expected
on Jul 25, 2020
I would not recommend this dish as a slow feeder dish. The food either comes out too fast or gets stuck. I have to manually release food sometimes. The cats usually dig out too much food at a time and get it all over the mat it sits on.
My cat likes this easy challenge!

This is one layer of my strategy for helping my cat shed a couple of pounds. It is definitely "easier" than the CatIt tree so it doesn't slow her down as much but she likes it so it is part of my rotation.
Excellent for my cat who ate to much
on May 19, 2020
I got this due to having issues with feeding two cats and having one ALWAYS overeat. He is already a big cat even at normal weight but was a solid 20 lbs. with overeating. This tunnel feeder slows him down just enough and makes him work for his food that I can actually fill it to capacity and he is still just right weight wise. Not sure if it would work that way for all cats, but it certainly worked that way for him. Only down side at all I can see is that the cats typically pull the food off the feeder, so the surface it is on, gets extra dirty with food residue. I just end up cleaning it often. Since I wanted him to lose weight, it has worked perfectly for me.
