My 19 year old, who shows little interest in anything, went right over and immediately started working the snacks through the pegs. The 7 year old watched with as much amazement as I did and just let her do her thing!! I have been adding puzzle to their toys and love how much they seem to enjoy the challenge!
My cat is a fast eater, and I use this to get her to slow down a bit. It took her a couple of weeks to figure out completely, and she doesn't always realize that she can spin the middle tube, but this definitely helps her keep her food down. The base seems a little unstable and detaches easily, but other than that, it's a great food puzzle.
I bought this in hopes that it would take my cat a while to figure out how to work it. Well, it took me longer to put together than it did for him to figure it out. However, he absolutely loves this treat puzzle. He will go over and sit beside it and knock the beakers when he wants them refilled with more to play with.
My cat is very smart and inquisitive, but it took her a few weeks to figure out how to rotate the three test tubes to get treats out. At first, I only put one tube on the pole, but once she figured it out, I put the other two on. It's well made and cleans nicely with dish soap and water. Vivian is so excited to play with it, she stands next to it and meows until I put her treats in the tubes.
This is very well made. I tried all the suggestions to get my cat to use this. She will get the treat out of the maze at the bottom. She will not try to turn the tubes over even though she can smell the treat in it. She is a short legged cat and it appears too tall for her. I am leaving it out. Maybe she will figure it out.
My cats figured this out pretty quickly but don’t show much interest in it, even when I put their favorite treats in it, possibly just not their speed.
We are all entertained by this puzzle. He actually bangs on it to let you know ow he wants treats in the tube. It is fun to watch him get them out. We use this when we are gone for the day to give him something g I threshing to do.
My cat figured out how to spin the tubes fairly quickly. He will purr and rub his face against the tubes which tells me he loves the challenge. A few reviewers mentioned how the toy can tip over fairly easily which can happen if my cat puts all his weight on it trying to flip the tubes. When that happens I hold the base down with my hands but overall it is not a big issue. Very happy with this purchase.
We have several puzzle toys and this is the most challenging. Starting with the recommended setup in the booklet of 1 tube with no lid (definitely start with this!), my smart one didn't show interest at first but can get the treats out within a few minutes by day 2. It's time for the next step! I suggest putting 3-4 hard treats in so that they make noise and it's easier for the cat to tell they are in there.
Would highly recommend! It took my cats a few days to finally get it (I had to assist for a bit) but if you put in the effort up from they will get it and then this toy will keep them occupied!! I put about a teaspoon of low calorie cat food in this before bed and it keeps them occupied for at least an hour!
