Appeal to all five of your cat’s senses with the Trixie Fantasy Board Interactive Cat Toy. Created by a cat expert, this toy is designed to hold treats, and your cat will have to figure out how to get to the tasty reward. There’s four different ways to play, and because cats aren’t able to see close moving objects in as much detail as humans, they’ll need to rely on their senses of smell and hearing in order to conquer the game. It’s made from a durable, kitty and dishwasher-safe plastic and rubber material, and measures 8.25 inches wide and 13.25 inches in diameter. The included booklet gives you all the best ways to play!
Interactive cat toy requires your cat to use all of his senses to get to the treats.
Game 1 is a treasure hunt that can be filled with ping pong balls to cover hidden treats.
Game 2 is a go fish fountain that lets treats trickle down while cats try to capture them.
Game 3 is a cup scoop that requires patience and dexterity to earn the reward.
Game 4 is a playful option that allows cats to earn treats while lying down and using their paws, claws or toes.
Select a good starting time: start the game when your cat is awake and in a playful mood. Do not start just after she has eaten. Alternatively, you could feed her while playing, by replacing the treats with the normal dry food. This prevents overfeeding and makes mealtimes more exciting and interesting.
Set the game up in a place where your cat feels relaxed and undisturbed.
Sit next to your cat and observe her subtly and calmly. Try to avoid staring, as this can make your cat feel restrained.
To motivate your cat at the start, use treats which are especially tasty for her.
Help your cat at the beginning to master the task to keep her motivated. It is important that your cat – especially early on – is successful quickly, so that she connects the game with a positive experience.
Although cats are naturally playful, some have almost forgotten how to play. These cats need to be taught gently and patiently how to play.
Some cats are excellent observers and imitators and can learn very well by watching.
Cats react very differently to new toys. Many are highly motivated to play right from the beginning with the “Cat Activity” toy range. Others need a little time to get used to the toys. They will ignore the toys at ﬁrst, only later to become completely enthusiastic about playing with them. There are also cats that enjoy concentrating for a long time on a game, while others prefer to play in smaller doses, but more frequently. Whichever way your cat decides, allow her time to deal with the game in her own way.
Attention: Cats under the age of 3 months or with a weight less than 3.3 lbs should use the Fantasy Board under supervision only.
None of our kittens or cats seem to "get" this game. I've tried playing with them... but, other than burying a freeze-dried chicken treat in the box with ping pong balls (which could be done with any basket or box), they really don't pay any attention to it. I'll keep trying and see if anything changes, but at least over the last week or so it's the least "exciting" of the toys I've purchased.
Very disapointing item'

My cat doesn’t like this toy, but that’s not the toy’s fault. It’s because he’s a cat. It’s a great enrichment toy, well thought out and well constructed, and my dog really likes it.
This is a great toy!
