It’s empty in here!
Simple yet so amazing! I thought it would be a good idea to get for when I go out the house so my cat has something else to play with while still getting food and I was right. She loves playing with it and I always put her food in there now because she enjoys it so much. So cheap too!
Ball was smaller than I expected and most treats are too big to freely move about in it. Still at 99p what did I expect. Kitten will still enjoy playing with it and I will just have to hunt down some tiny treats to put in it.
Unfortunately my cat does not seem to get it, she won't play with it at all. Shame as it's a great idea
our boy cat gobbles down his food so far, that we decided to try a puzzle toy, and it keeps him entertained for ages. its a good way to get an under active cat moving about as well.
i alternate between giving treats for training and this. like a fellow reviewer below me this was purchased after the 'dreamies mouse' was mastered. whilst he has now mastered this also, because this rolls much further he gets more excercise especially when he's batting it around like a maniac! have just had to order a 2nd as the 1st has been swallowed up by a black hole and I can't find it anywhere. only "negative" is that i wish you could level up so to speak, to increase the difficulty.
The treat ball is a good product although my cat emptied it in no time, I'd bought this as he'd mastered the dreamies mouse a little too well. Think I'm going to need something more challenging for my Enzo!
Its a nice product, fits plenty of treats. My cat loves smacking it around. However the treats either come out too easily or not at all, there's no inbetween. I'll just have to put less treats in because my cat is extremely greedy!
My indoor Bengals are given treats after their dinner with a ball each,they sit and watch the balls being prepared and once given they excitedly proceed to extract their treats.Dilys likes to get her nose down and "dribble" it like a footballer whilst Bronwyn tends to bat and chase,this has resulted in breaking hers(after about 3 months of violent batting)when it cracked against the corner of the skirting.I have ordered replacements as hand fed treats,although delightful are short lived
Cats love it but it is a pain to fill
My cat really loves this as a way of getting her dry food, so much so, I bought her a second one. She'll swat it all over the place. She doesn't eat her food all at once so this is good for her, and a great toy too. My issue with it is that it's hard to clean the interior of it. But she loves it enough that I'll give it 5 stars. Happy cat = happy Mum.
Both our cats like this toy, they push and bat it around. I normally set it on the more difficult setting as it makes the fun last longer. My only complaint is that it's a little difficult and slow to fill., putting the treats in one by one.
Rabbits are more intelligent than people realize & love foraging in food puzzles. Bought these as a boredom breaker to keep my rabbits amused & they're a real hit. Nice gift for animal rescue charities too as they're cheap & easy to clean.
A good idea and certainly worth a try at under £1. A bit small for the treats and dry food our cat has. Costing much more I, and our cat, prefer the SlimCat Treat Ball but tried this at the low price.
My cats don't get these at all, I just can't get them to use/understand it has food in it. Oh well! I think they're great!
My cat doesn't like this much - I just end up with dry food all over the floor. She isnt a greedy cat, so I don't need to worry about slowing down her feeding time. I used to have a similar food ball in rubber or soft plastic which I preferred; I have wood floors, so this is a bit noisy.
One of my kitties Elsa loves this - pushing it around and eating up her food from it. However, Tink does not entertain it and only eats the food if you bat it around for her. The only problem with Elsa is that it has a tendency to go under the sofa, when she pushes it into the lounge.
This little ball is brilliant. It fits in the middle level of my CatIt food maze. It also fits in the Trixie TX2 food dispenser. When she's alone during the day, the dispenser releases the ball. She then has to bat it out of the feeder and chase it around the kitchen. When I feed her at night, I put it in the maze to add extra challenge. I wish I could dismantle it for cleaning, but for the price, it has been great. My cat is sick much less often when she has to work for her kibble. I'm ordering another two so that I can put one in the maze and two in the TX2!
Brilliant for a little treat. although play don't last long once the treats have been eaten
My cat loves this toy, and its an easy way to stop him loosing interest in a toy after a cpuple of days.
My rabbit is obsessed with her pellets and will eat them all at once - this is the perfect alternative to slow her down a bit and give her something to do! Great value for money and very durable. She had no trouble working out how to use it and now it takes her at least an hour to eat her pellets. Just the right size too!
This toy I like as it makes my two work for their treats
This is always a winner in our house! A few treats in the ball has them running around chasing the ball until they are sure all the treats are gone!
My cat was very happy playing with this and eating the food. However, it's quite a small ball and I haven't seen it since its first use several weeks ago. For regular feeding I recommend a larger ball that is easier to find and less likely to get stuck underneath furniture.
I bought this and a Trixie snack roll and this was by far the better of the two. It only took about 7 or 8 of the kibbles so for me could have been a little bigger just to make it last longer as her treats are large and were already 1/4 of the way up the spiral. She loved moving this about to get the kibbles out and as it went all different ways up they didn't fall out too quick either. Bella's eyesight isn't what it use to be but her nose makes up for it and the fact that it 'rattled' with the treats in it let her know there was still something in. She even batted it about for about 30 seconds after it was empty (don't laugh. Bella is NOT a playful cat and the fact that she did this was AMAZING!) All in all i'm pleased with it. She has a daily tablet (that she loves) and VermX treats so tonight going to put them in it for her to have another play. Although it's not as robust as the Trixie and smaller, Bella actually managed to pick it up in her mouth (she is a BIG cat) so I don't know long it will last, It will need to be checked more regularly for damage. However I would quite happily keep replacing it.
I bought it when Phoebe was really small and she didn't get it at first. She either treated it as a ball and didn't notice treats falling out or when getting one treat she was upset there isn't more readily available and would just walk away... I tried it again now that she's 5 months old, and she loves it! She keeps battling the ball with her paws and then follows it with her nose near the floor to make sure she doesn't miss a single treat! Great fun for her and for me watching her :D
So glad I bought this! It keeps my senior oriental cat amused for ages! He's an indoor cat, and I worry about him getting bored, so I find this is a good way of giving him his dry food, at 99p it's a great bargain too.
My 14 year old cat loves this treat ball. She quickly worked out how to use it loves it. It's a really good start for enrichment toys. Great value too!
