These foraging balls are a great beginner toy. They also are great for down the road when your cat becomes a "master forager" and it is time to increase the challenge. As shown in the photos below, these balls can be placed inside larger containers much like the foraging ping-pong balls from Fundamentally Feline are utilized to increase the challenge. One never needs to get rid of easy toys, just save them for later when you need to make the game harder.
The Catit Treat Ball
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!
