I bought this to keep my cat entertained when I'm not there, and also to slow down her eating, however she was definitely puzzled by it in the first place so needs a bit more support from me. Fortunately it comes with detailed suggestions on how to encourage your cat to explore the different components. I've sometimes used it with treats, sometimes with her dried food; she clearly likes it and sits by it rather than by her food bowl. So a happy purchase with plenty of potential.
Very disappointing experience. My 3 cats are the least fussy eaters I know. They 'hoover' everything and they love their occasional treats. I offered them this treat and for the first time they actually looked at me with disgust. The texture of these is all wrong. The pieces are too light and have no substance to them. They also stick to their mouths once the saliva touches them. I hope these make better compost than cat treats.
One of my cats is very intelligent. She already has 3 other Trixie treat feeders but has mastered these and is getting bored with them. This one challenges her more than any other, especially when used with the Cosma treats, which she adores!
Cats love these. Also much healthier than other treats due to being 100% chicken. Be warned, it's easy to break the 3-4 a day rule. Mine have me so wrapped round their paws they can easily convince me to give them 10! Peanut is hooked!
I find them very good for gaining the trust of our newest cat who is very shy.
When the action got too wild with the Cats on Thrones Valerian Cushion Toy for my F3 Bengal, I felt we needed to distract him. I tried calling him, rattling his bowl and teasing him with other toys, but nothing worked until I offered him a Cosma Snackie, which gave me just long enough to grab the cushion before it was gobbled up. Now he is obsessed with the Snackies *and* the Cats on Thrones Valerian Toy (they are great too, by the way!).
We have two cats - a moggy and a long haired fluff ball! The fluff ball caught on really quickly and loves it. As soon as we have finished our evening meal she races into the lounge for us to load the toy. Our moggy took rather longer to get the hang of it and still can only manage the slidey middle section but still enjoys it. A great purchase
Very pleased that my cat adores these so much. He has inflammatory bowel disease and cannot have most treats. As soon as he sees the tube he gets really excited. Great for when he needs a treat eg after medication or claw cutting. I dont use treats other than for these types of things. Will try the other varieties next.
I wasn't sure my two cats would get the idea of this toy but they do! Wanted something to entertain and stimulate them now the winter nights are here, and this really does the trick. Keeps them occupied for quite some time and makes a few treats go further too. Very happy with this purchase.
We have three ferrets and they are all obsessed with Cosma Snackies! These are of course advertised for cats but the nutritional composition of these make them ideal treats for ferrets, too. Ours love these snackies so much that even when the tubes are empty, they steal the tubes from the recycling and stash them!
Note: The regular size are ideal for ferret mouths - I think the other sizes would be too big for them.
My cat love this treats so much, it was her favourite thing but unfortunately she is alergic to this treats. ..she is getting horrible rush on her feet turning in to bloody scars. It is very painful. Would like to know why? In discretion its says that is 100% chicken, meat or fish....
Alergie is definitely from this product, I have tried few times with the same results.
My cat loves these cosma snackies mixed trial packs. These are great as there are 4 tubes of different flavors of pure protein at a reasonable price. I will keep on buying this product as I know that they will be enjoyed and relished by my cat even though he is a fussy eater. My experience of this product is excellent.
Our oriental is an extremely fussy eater and after numerous blood tests, scans etc vets cannot find anything wrong. I bought some of these in the hope they would encourage him to eat and it has worked. He absolutely loves them, I crush a couple on his food and he wolf's it down and has a couple after! This product has saved me so much worry, they are amazing!
