The instrucations on how to train your cat with this feeding system are very helpful. It's easy to train your cat to use this. Now our cat looks for the "mice" and will try to play with his normal food if he's feeling bored. That's when we know to pull out the "mice" for dinner.
My cat seems very bored, I really wanted this to work. My cat quickly understood how to get the food out. Now he gets the kibble out ...in 5 different places around the house, eats a few pieces, leaves the rest. So most of the food is being swept up and thrown away.
My 1 1/2 year old girl, Tigerlilly, loves to hunt! I've been searching for a product like this, and I was so excited to discover it! Before I had this I used to have to toss Lilly food or incorporate a game to spark her interest, and the mouse fits the bill. Would it be possible to sell a more expensive version that was mobile? I know my girl would love this even more if it moved, even a little. I definitely recommend this product!
I am taking care of two cats for a deployed military family. One of the cats prefers to be outside and hunt. I would prefer he not hunt, and since I started using these mice he is choosing to spend much more time inside!
It sounded like a great idea however after trying to teach my rag doll (very adaptable,smart, cat) to use it himself I packed it away. Maybe when I retire and have time....
