Fun, easy, inexpensive! This foraging toy by Doc & Pheobe is adorable. It is a great beginner toy for cats to learn the upward motion of tipping things for the food to dispense which is a challenging move for some cats to learn. The feathers really add interest. One could always cover up a hole to increase the challenge or place objects inside to make it more difficult for the food to dispense.
