Interactive cat toy requires your cat to use patience and concentration to get to the treats you hide inside.

Game three is moving the lever to open the drawers, and game four is tugging the drawer open using the loop.
Made from kitty and dishwasher-safe rubber and plastic; measures 6.5” long x 7.75” diameter x 3.5” high.
I actually got this toy and Trixie Fantasy Board Interactive Cat Toy. I like the Fantasy Board better because I can use freeze dried treats instead of the hard treats. But I still use this one too. My cats haven't figure the sliding knob yet but they have mastered the rest of it. I actually saw one of my guys turning the entire thing over trying to get the treats in the sliding knob draw to come out. LOL!
Great Puzzler for Inquisitive Kitty

It’s well designed with different games. Small treats tend to get stuck in the slider tracks though, and the push lever gets stuck at a certain point when opening the drawer. The balls tend to get lost since they’re not connected. My cat really likes it, and it’s fun to watch her learn how to open the little compartments.
Great entertainment despite some design flaws

My cat enjoys this, he can spend few minutes trying to figure how to get the treats. I usually sit with him while he figures them out and help him sometimes. The part where he needs to pull is too difficult for him. There are some design flaws like treats getting stuck in between, especially when they are smaller pieces. But overall, I think it's a good product. I'd rather have my kitty work for his treats than give it to him directly. I can tell he is enjoying it instead of being frustrated.
Thank you, Trixie!

My food obsessed cat has aced every other puzzle in a nanosecond, but the Trixie Brain Mover not only stumps her, it gives my other cat and pit bull a chance to finish their meals in peace. We have had it for a week and it still takes her nearly thirty minutes - with my assistance - to finish, whether we fill it with raw, wet or dry food. We have never had a learning curve with a food puzzle before, so it is very exciting to watch her switch between using her instincts to sniff for hidden food and seeing her frustration as she randomly bats at the pieces. This will not be retired to the closet any time soon.

Concept was good but many flaws. Treats get wedged in the grooves while cat is trying to scoop out of cups. Not all treats will work and they have to be on the larger size... Good Luck finding that. Balls could have been easily attached to mechanism so when the cat knocks them off they don't go far. Day two and one of the balls was already missing. Our cat wants to play with it but we find that she rarely gets the treats she is trying for and I can imagine she get frustrated.
Still Not Mastered!

Does fine with the balls and sliding squares. Has not yet grasped pulling the string, tho she batts at it. Occasionally, accidentally I think, hits the arm and moves the tray. Will then poke at it, but hasn't purposefully pushed it. Still learning, still trying.
Keeps My Cat Busy
on Feb 25, 2019
I have a very smart two-year old male tabby that needs a lot of interaction. He can operate all of his toys with pull strings or push buttons and gets bored easily. This toy has him intrigued and keeps him busy while I try to get other work done. In two days he has figured out all but one of the secret hiding places.
Love the brain teaser!

So far my cat can get treats from under the blue squares and from under the balls, and she can pull the string to get more (with a little help). She hasn't progressed to the slider yet. My cat is not a kitten, she is 8 year old, so it isn't a toy just for young cats!
Great concept and that’s it.

Our house caters to kitties. We currently have 24 in total. And at any given time there’s 15-19 in the main areas. Because we cannot easily serve several meals a day and we free feed it was a suggestion of a vet that we buy fun aka slow feeders. After looking around on Chewy I found a good variety. I think I bought one of each. Or at least close to it. I was in and out of the house all day and I saw one cat give this a try. When I saw give this a try, she pawed at the food she could see. Took a couple pieces and moved to another feeder. I don’t know if this one is just that difficult or they know there are easier ones to go to, to get food. I’m going to give it another day or two but I’m prettyOur house caters to kitties. We currently have 24 in total. And at any given time there’s 15-19 in the main areas.

But as of now I wouldn’t sing any praises for this feeder.… more
Advertised as Cat toy - Toy has "Dog Toy" right on it?
on Feb 17, 2019
I purchased this interactive toy for my two siamese cats as they have the other interactive toy from Trixie and that one has been good. But this one is not as good as the lever is really hard to push, the openings under the sliders are so small, our cats have a very hard time removing the treat and the sliders are so loose, they keep sliding over the treat. Not sure the purpose of the balls?? Just really disappointed in this toy and would not recommend it.
