This has been a fantastic purchase which our rescue cat (ex stray, 8-10 yrs old) absolutely loves playing with. He gets very excited when we get it out for him. He picked up what to do the very first time, but still struggles a little bit with the maze part. He was 1kg overweight when we rescued him and would eat his food from a bowl very quickly. This game has slowed down his eating which is helping a lot with his weight loss programme. Based on our experience I would highly recommend this product (and already have to friends and family).
This has been a great purchase. When I first saw it I couldn't see how it could be entertaining for the cats but they absolutely love it. It's superb quality and will last for ages. I would highly recommend it.
Our 9 month tabby loves this activity board and he took to it straight away. He quickly knew what to do and enjoys the thrill of getting the treats.
Very pleased with this product. Our two Norwegian Forest cats absolutely love it. Sometimes worry that they can get bored being indoor cats but this certainly keeps them amused! Definitely recommend!
We had a rescue cat who was a little hyper and had a tiny concentration span. Since getting this board, she has calmed down to the point where she will now spend time figuring out how best to get to the treats. She can't work out the bowls (yet) unless I put a toy mouse in with the tail trailing out - but this is a toy that requires time and patience, you need to let your cats figure it out for themselves. I now leave it out overnight with some treats and toys hidden and it is a huge hit. It's obviously well designed by people who truly understand cats, and although it's a little expensive I think the price reflects the research that went into it.
I'm gutted... this is a great product, but unfortunately my cat, Levi doesn't agree and doesn't want to know. I can't give this a bad rating because it's not due to the product being bad or anything. I think Levi knows that he's going to get his treats whether he works for them or not, so he's pretty much decided not to bother working for them. If you've got a cat who's spoilt rotten, and knows he's spoilt, then be warned that your cat might not want to know this. Levi knows he's going to get his treats so he plays with his other toys bought on zooplus instead! This is just sitting in it's box so I'm going to pass it on to a friend... I think her cat, Charlie will have much more fun with it.
This is a fabulous product. I have 2 lovely cats and it gives them both a chance to eat their biscuits. The smaller cat can get the biscuits out of the small bowls, whereas the larger cat cannot get his paws in these. It's great fun watching them work out how to get the biscuits out of the fun board. Challenges the cats too and makes meal times more fun for them.
I have 2 Ocicats, a BSH & Tiffanie. The Oci's are very active cats by nature, they tend to eat & weight gain through boredom. These are great although it only took seconds for them to figure out what to do to get their biscuits, it does slow their eating down & they work for their meal. It took a lot longer for my TIFF & BSH to work out but they are joining in now too.
I put treats in all the places on the activity board especially the Cosma snackies that Zooplus sells and my Somali cats love it, spending time scooping out the treats or using their paws to flick the treats out. Somalis are bright cats and need lots of stimulation and this is great to keep them challenged as well as giving them treats. They quickly knew what to do for each task on the board, highly recommended!
I bought one of these first for our Abyssinian stud cat and he liked it so much that I bought another. They love it, and it's a good way of keeping boys amused if they can't mix with the other cats.
the two cats -one 2 the other 18 both find this fun and it has only been around for a couple of days. the 2 yr old uses a "smash and grab" approach whereas the 18 yr old has a slightly more ponderous approach. It would get a 5 if there were some bits that could be entered sideways- ie if some of the balls could be on end.
My two "oldies" age 6 and 7, simply love it! And i enjoy looking at them, when they play.. :)
I bought this board for my 13 year old indoor cat. She took to it straight away and it is great watching her trying to figure out how to get the treats. I will try and feed her dry food that way as well.It is a very well made toy and I highly recommend it!
Very unique and well made toy my cat uses this all the time but he seems to hate bit with the spikes on haha. My cat is fed pulley on dry food and on my days off all his food is fed on this it great to watch he eat.
This has been a very good buy....all of them use it. I put half their food in, each meal time and this stimulates them to think that they are earning their food, because it is a challenge. It slows down the eating and I have noticed that I am getting less back (if you get my point)

my cat is very greedy, and often asks for her breakfast very early in the morning and eats it very quickly without chewing. As she is so food motivated this board is a great way to keep her entertained, it also means she eats her crunchies slowly and chews them properly. I'm sure this is a better way for her to eat and will assist in her weight loss programme!
This is excellent entertainment for me let alone my cat. I put small biscuits in and watch her antics getting them out. A really great idea to keep cats amused. Mine is very smart and figured it all out in no time but it still keeps her busy!
I bought this for my three Maine Coons and it's the only activity (apart from eating) that they all do together. Even with their huge paws they manage to get the treats out of the bowls. They love it when they see the treat board come out. The youngest of my girls is very shy and does not tend to play much but she is the first to come to the board and the last to leave. I would highly recommend this to anyone with a cat/s
I got this for my kitten as soon as I got her and never feed her kibble just left in a bowl. She uses this board and a Slim Cat Ball. Although she hasn't worked out how to get kibble from the goldfish bowls, she can do the other ones. I believe it helps them pace their eating so that they aren't sick from wolfing their food too quickly. I also thinks it gives an indoor cat a bit of extra stimulation in the day. It's plastic and easily washable. I would recommend this to anyone.
This keeps one of my cats occupied for quite a while as he gently gets food the way the product was designed. The other more intelligent cat figured out that if he tipped it over the food was far easier to access. The third cat ignores it.
i have 2 british shorthair cats , i ,the older female (5 yrs)was not interested at all, but she doesnt show much interest in anything , except sleeping ! the younger male (2 years) however loves this (this is who i got it for ), i put his dry food in it everytime i feed him , he loves to get the food out, he mastered getting food out quite quickly, but is still more interesting for him than food in a bowl and of course keeps him occupied for a while !! i take it in when not feeding , to keep his interest in it when it comes out again . he is very outgoing and bright and is very BIG , he has BIG paws and still does well, it is more difficult to get the food obviously , with big paws, but i see this as a + side, more time playing with the board = less time fighting !! . good for active bright cats that cant go outside !
I bought this board for my 11 year old siamese cat, he doesnt play with toys but loves food, he loves this toy although i put it away for a while so he forgets how to get the treats out, my other two cats cant figure it out!
This is a great toy for cats of all ages. Our elderly kitties love it too. Cats do master getting treats out of the clear spheres quickly but they still love it and play with it every time it's filled with treats. It's easy to clean and a great way to feed dry food. Recommended highly.
Our British shorthair boy is largely an indoor cat as he's deaf, but perhaps because of this, he is fairly receptive to toys, very inquisitive and intelligent. Subsequently, he worked out each of the tasks almost straight away. Having said that, this is the only toy that he has showed sustained interest in and he uses it daily. Just a shame they couldn;t have made it a bit more difficult.
all of my cats have worked out how to get their treats from this fun board,i top it up when i go out and when i come back home it is nearly empty they love it,this is perfect for keeping them occupied and its fun watching them too,i am so glad i bought this
My 14 year old cat refuses to engage in much activity, so to relieve boredom i bought this for him. It made me really happy to see him foraging for treats. I am extremely happy i purchased this item as it has proved invaluable.
I was dubious that my cats would bother, but I put their favourite biscuits in it (ones I don't want them eating too quickly) and they love hooking them out like they are clever and have won a prize. Makes a little mess and you have to clean it out every so often as it gets a bit hairy, but not difficult to do and the little bowls twist out to clean. I have it sitting on some plastic floor protection near their water fountain. Definitely one of my best purchases.
Charlie is very old - half blind, half deaf and very wonky! He ignored the board for the first week - another wasted toy, I thought...... then he started to find his dry food! Now he loves it and spends most evenings with it. An excellent buy - it is very difficult to find exercise for an old cat - this is perfect! I recommend it to any cat - just don't give up if it is first ignored - your cat with eventually love it!
OK so with one skinny little cat and one porker (could these two facts be related?!) I usually have to stand over the bowls as they eat to prevent FatCat wolfing down both lots of food. This board is perfect for slowing down the eating and making sure that both get their fair share. Neither are particularly bright but both have worked out the best ways to get at the food. I find that leaving out a little of the less-tasty diet food in their normal bowls means that they work a bit with this to get their favourite Applaws kibble. I wouldn't call this a "Fun Board" or a toy as I think that's misleading. For fun, cats like to chase, pounce or hide in boxes. This is more like mental stimulation and a feeding mechanism so it will not be "played" with unless they are hungry or you put particularly tasty treats in it. They want the food not the fun! That said, it's a very good quality, sturdy board. Well worth it and highly recommended.
We are constantly trying to find ways to stimulate Dolly,our indoor cat.This is board is fantastic and she loves it. We make it harder for her by putting her dried food in the smaller square containers and also put toy mice in the bowls. Wish we had thought to get this before,rather than wasting money on toys tha shes not interested in.
What a wonderful invention, I bought this product for my elderly cat Oscar who is 12 years old, after a thyroid operation he had lost all his playful moods and wasn't interested in anything anymore, which worried me greatly. I saw this Cat Activity Fun Board advertised in one of the cat Magazine and thought I give this a try. Well my little boy loves it, a few treats like Whiskers dental treats got him out of his shell, he hasn't quite managed to master the top part of the board yet, but my other two felines have seen to that. Yes a big thumb up for that product.
They have been transfixed by the board since it arrived, Great buy
This is a hit we have 9 cats from 3 to 9 yers old. The cats loves the Fun board and looking for food or maltbits and they are very good at it.
It has taken him a whole day to figure out the glassbowls! had to put his treats in the fridge though he was banging at the cupboard trying to get them out
we have 2 cats, one is very quick and clever and the other one tends to be a bit lazy. the former was in at it and before long had worked it all out. the other showed no interest at all. a few weeks later though and both scamper over whenever i bring it out. it;s a good toy and it keeps them amused for a while!
Our cat has two meals a day meat in the morning and biscuits at night. We have started putting half his biscuits on the board. It is really funny to watch, i forget how clever cats really are!
This activity board is absolute genius! My ragdoll and moggie both totally adore it. They get so much delight out of hunting and scooping treats up. Its a great way to keep them occupied, and active too. Very highly reccommended for anyone with a bright cat who loves to forage.
I wish I'd bought this years ago, it would have saved on months of behaviour therapy! My 3 Siamese love this and it has made treat giving more fun for them.
The minute I got this board out of package I saw it was thoughtfully designed and challenging (at least for my not-too-overintelligent cats). It is easy to clean and versatile. I would recommend this product to anyone who has bored kitties!
