Product Description

Colour Name: Orange

Product Description

Today's modern cats seldom get a chance to hunt for their food. As a result they sit around and wait for their food bowl ! This is one of the root causes of obesity in modern cats.

The Pestafe Slim Cat ball was designed to make meal time more challenging and more interesting for your cat. Fill the ball with your cat's daily ration, and let him work it out ! Holes in the ball will allow dry food to fall out progressively as your cat plays with the ball. A simple twist will make it more or less challenging depending on your cat's personality.

With the Petsafe Slim Cat ball, your cat will eat slower and exercize at meal time, improving digestion and keeping him at an optimal weight.

This is a great little device. The idea is simple. Fill it with treats and let your cat 'earn' them by being rewarded for his hard work. It's meant to help keep cats slim as they have to exercise to get their food, but it's equally great to use just as a toy and to keep them interested.

The ball is easy to fill, the bottom twists off and you shove in the biscuits and nibbles - the you twist the body of the ball which adjusts the sizes of the wholes the food falls out of. Your cat smells the food and nudges the ball around so the nibbles fall out.

One thing to consider - it does get a bit annoying if you have hard wooden floors. It gets a bit noisy. A great product and great idea overall. My cats love it.

Colour Name: Orange
This has been a godsend for my cat Fred. He had a weight problem and has a tendency to eat whatever food is available. This treat ball makes him work for his food and stops him eating for the sake of it. The size of the holes to release food are adjustable and his reduced calorie, urinary tract kibble fits fine. Its easy to fill by unscrewing the top cap too. This gadget also seems to have made him more playful again by engaging his hunting instinct. Very very occasionally he's batted the ball across the hall and scattered kibble everywhere, but the vast majority of the time he only knocks it around at his feet and stops to eat the moment food drops out. Fred weighed 7.5kg, but is now 6.5kg which is much more the size he should be (he's a large framed cat anyway). My ball is getting a little loose now as I've had it a while, but I wouldn't hesitate buying a replacement. My only problem is finding where he's left the ball when he's emptied it LOL. Thoroughly recommended.

This is a great little product and easy to use for the human. The bottom of the ball just twists off, you place the dried munchies inside the ball, twist the cap back on, decided how big the holes in the ball need to be to allow the muchie through and then lock it in place. Couldn't be simpler. My two cats were bouncing up and down to be fed so I rolled the ball towards them (little munchies falling away from the ball as I did) and cats did a bunk out of the cat door! They came back in, sniffed the ball, decided it was no threat then settled down for a kip. Lesson to human, they are as conditioned as I am in that when they hear my car pull up, it's feeding time, hungry or not. I decided to leave them to it and not put food down, after all, a 7kg cat who can work out that the pack of dried food is kept in the top cupboard and manages to open the door, knock the huge bag to the floor and tear through it for a midnight feast for him and his brother can definitely work out how to knock a ball around, right? Wrong!

I have decided that my 6 year old moggies have become too used to silver service and that's why they are so overweight and idle. The product is good, it rolls with the lightest of touch even when filled with food and it seems sturdy enough. I can't blame the Slimcat ball - one of us is burning calories chasing it round the carpet and two of us are looking on bemused. Meanwhile, it's a waiting game to see who caves in first . . . .

Follow up to my review: Last night I made the moggies go hungry because they turned their noses up at their usual good quality dinner and hey presto! In the morning the ball - which had been hanging around since last week - was empty! So I haven't got moronic moggies, just lazy ones, the ball works.

I read the other two reviews and was a little worried that a)I would not be able to work out how to open the ball and b)the cat would not be able to work it out!

never fear, it is easy to open the ball, just turn the bar on the bottom of the ball. The ball itself has ajustable openings so different sized food is not a problem, and as your cat gets used to the ball, you can adjust them smaller to make it more difficult for the food to drop out and therefore make your cat work harder.

Bailey had no trouble with the ball once she got over the pride issue of having to work for her food (she used to wait until you had left the room before patting the ball!).

For the cost it is worth giving it a go.

i bought this product for my obese cat, he is very very lazy and my vet suggested i buy a product like this to help him lose weight. I wasn't sure he would be able to work it out as he is not the brightest of beasts haha but he did!, in fact my other more clever cats just let him do all the work of getting the food out and ate all his food !!!!!!! well thats one way to lose weight i guess. I found this product a really good and cheap way to help my cat be more active, it will dispense most size of cat biscuits and is easy to clean, only thing is i have to go find it under tables and stuck behind cutains etc when i need to fill it up lol. All in all it was well worth the little amount of money it cost.

Bought this for my two cats, and they took to it straight away, it's very easy to fill and you just twist the adjustment to the size of what's inside. It's also lightwieght unlike a previous one I bought. I think the fact it's also see through helps. A great idea to get your cats to work for their treats or biscuits. Highly recommend.
