Our male cat eats too much, and the female likes to play with her food. This is a good solution for both - F has to work for his kibble and Zelda can pounce to her heart's content.
My cats love this! by catmom from Boston, MA06/22/2012
And what's not to love? a toy, treats, something to knock around the room??!! My cats love this toy so much, I'm buying several more for all my friends who have cats.
good dispenser, question the exercise by JMcC from san jose CA12/14/2012
We have several cats. One of them took over this treat toy and nudged it along with his head until he had extracted all the treats. Another cat shadowed the nudger and gobbled the treats that bounced farther out. I'm going to try the ball again on a more difficult setting, but I think we have too many cats. The competition over treats is too intense to risk swatting the ball---the other cats might get the treats. I think this is a toy for a household with 1 or 2 cats. It works as presented in the description by the manufacturer.

This ball was probably the best purchase Ive ever made for my cat. Since he is a house cat he tends to be a bit lazy which of course results in his weight problem. With this ball he has become more active since he has to work a bit to get his crunchy food.I would like to note he is successfully losing his extra pounds.
