Description

Channel your cat’s energy and curiosity into the Trixie Mad Scientist Turn Around Interactive Cat Toy. Cats are clever and inquisitive animals, and this interactive toy is designed with just that in mind, offering a variety of ways to play. Start off by placing some treats inside the beakers, and let your cat master the concept of flipping the beakers upside down to release the treats. Then, take it up a notch by adding the included lids with patterned holes, which makes it more difficult to get the treat out. He’ll love the thrill of the hunt and mental stimulation!

  • Cats are funny to watch

    By on

    I put it together in a few minutes, loaded it with treats and turned my cats loose on it. 1 Cat it didn't take her more than about 15 minute to figure it out now shes an expert! I like that it comes with different caps to make it harder to get the treats out so now she has to work harder to get them. Her sister took a little longer to figure out how to work it. I have to keep the one cat away so the other cats have a chance to try it because she will do it for them. LOL.

  • Great Cat Toy

    By on

    We have eight cats and it's getting harder and harder to play with them as they have grown tired of all wand toys. Engaging them in play has become a challenge. This toy is actually a birthday gift for one of our fur children. So I thought I would give this toy a try since they love treats and it would engage them in how to get the treat. They've had fun with Temptations Snacky Mouse Cat Treat Toy, but have grown bored of that. I like the idea of this one and will write another reply once we give it to Leroy for his birthday.

  • Cats love it!

    By on

    My cats were so bored they were eating paper, so I ordered this and a couple of other toys. This thing is the best! We followed the instructions, and within an hour, both cats were able to "win" with the most difficult caps in place. Now they both prefer to eat their food from this toy, which is great because it helps them eat more slowly.

  • Waste of money

    By on

    I was super excited but maybe it's because I have 2 cats and they both got so anxious the other one was going to get the treat. It's much harder than it looks on the video. It's super hard to get the treats out of the little maze at the bottom. I wish I would have chosen a different one.

  • Great product, but cats couldn't understand it

    By on

    This product came in perfect condition and assembled easily and sturdily. The instructions explain how to get your cats started but unfortunately my cats just never caught on. Can't fault the product for that though. I called customer service and received a refund and didn't have to ship back the product. I donated it to my local SPCA.

  • Too much fun!

    By on

    I have 3 cats. Only one of them has been able to figure out this toy He absolutely loves it. He flips one or more of the blue containers and shares whatever falls out with the other two cats. This goes on whenever there are goodies in the toy's containers. It is hilarious to watch. When the containers are empty the cat (Rusty) that knows how to operate the toy spends much of his time flipping the empty containers! Again, very entertaining for us & him!

  • If you think your cat will like this, they probably will

    By on

    We have two cats, one of whom is a little imp and gets into everything, and the other is totally mellow. I got this toy thinking the imp would love this, and she totally does. The other couldn't care less, just mooches bits of kibble that the imp knocks out of the toy. Like most of the toys we get the cats, one loves it, the other doesn't care. That's just how cats are. But this toy is really smart in how it works, and the cat who loves it will come sprinting when she hears food going into the Mad Scientist, even if we've just put down a bowl of kitty kibble-- she would rather get food out of this toy.

  • This product changed my life

    By on

    Seriously, this toy is the best thing I ever bought for my cat. I bought this about 6 years ago when my cat had a weight problem and had to go on a diet. I use it to feed my cat his dry food every morning. It keeps him from gobbling it up too fast and throwing up (like he sometimes does with his wet food at dinnertime). It gives him a challenge and keeps him occupied while I feed my other cat. When I switched from a larger kibble to a smaller one I just switched the lids to the ones with smaller holes.

  • My Cats just haven't caught on...

    By on

    It's not a bad product, but my cats just haven't caught on. I've tried with just one tube and with all three...they just watch me spin them and wait for the treats to fall out! Simply won't mess with it on their own.

  • Good but not quite durable enough

    By on

    My cat is rather intelligent so durability is a huge issue. He's already pulled it down and pulled the stands out of their holes multiple times. It's not something I could give him while I'm at work. I'd give 5 stars if it was more durable. I should only have to put the stands in their holes once and then really have to pull at it for them to come out. Also, I actually completely skipped the recommended initial set up (1 tube with no lid) and went straight for 3 tubes with all lids. I showed my cat how to use it twice so it's not terribly hard for him but it does keep his brain busy for a good bit. I don't recommend skipping the initial setup unless you know your cat will get it quickly. Overall My cat is rather intelligent so durability is a huge issue.

It will be better for some cats than others. … more
