This stationary foraging board offers a myriad of different obstacles, can be used for wet or dry food and can be enjoyed by both novice and experienced foragers. Placing the food only in the center of the board increases the challenge and requires the cats to then extract food from a secondary puzzle at the perimeter. Not only is this toy stylish, it is well made, easy to clean and versatile.
This is a beginner puzzle that surprisingly kept a few master foragers occupied for a minute! It spins and swirls like a top, dispensing food out of one of three openings. The inside has a maze that prevents the food from dispensing too easily. It is good to offer novel puzzles from time to time to curb mental boredom.
This foraging ball features an inner maze coupled with an adjustable opening allowing you to alter the difficulty level based on your cat's skill level and the size of the food.
This is an excellent beginner toy.
Right: let Hitchinson show you how it is done in this short video clip!
The Catit Treat Maze is a great beginner puzzle! Some kitties may be stumped by the clear plastic cover as cats are unable to focus on objects right under their noses. They are virtually blind within 12 inches from their face and use their whiskers to locate objects right in from of them like food or toys.
One of the plates provided is easier than the other and they are quite easy to switch out and clean. Check out this video to see it in action!
This treat tower certainly requires some previous foraging experience.
Cats must work food down each level of the Catit Food Maze to finally achieve a piece of food that has fallen through into the base/food tray.
There is an adjustable plate at the middle tier that allows for the openings to be made smaller to increase the challenge.
For gregarious foragers, a weight, rock or other heavy object can be placed in the base/tray to weight toy down so it does not topple over.
And, as is true for most Catit products, this food puzzle comes with a pressure point mat to ease paw fatigue while diligently working for kibble!
