My fat cat Zoe loves this. She gets all her meals this way. It provides her with stimulation and fun
Not a huge hit or miss. by CuteandCuddlyCats from Houston, TX11/23/2012
Two of my four cats messed around with this enough to get the food to come out, but I would hardly call it exercise given the limited ground they covered. So yeah, it does dispense food, but the ball is to large to encourage across the house play. My cats are to smart to bat a ball of food away from them, they want to keep it right under their nose.
