For A Pet That's Fit & Healthy

SlimCat is suitable for cats and kittens
PetSafe Slim Cat Interactive Feedball

A pet feeding systems like the SlimCat provide cats with regular small meals of dry biscuit food. This is how cats would choose to eat - little and often. Some pets with stomach problems benefit from having their food in small regular portions. The timing of the delivery of the meals is therefore important and can be controlled with a feeding systems.

Simply open the feedball and insert you cat's daily food ration. Close the lid and adjust the hole size according to the size of the kibble, and also - how easy you want it to be for your cat to access the food. The more open, the easier to access and vice versa.

Ideal for kittens and cats the dishwasher safe SlimCat holds up to 150 g of dry food.

In addition to the health benefits derived from the portion control, the extra activity of twisting, turning and chasing the feedball will help keep your cat active, exercised and free form boredom. She will have hours of fun playing whilst taking a 'weight' of your mind.

Years ago the PetSafe brand was launched. A brand which has now become a leading name in pet care products. Right from the early days, PetSafe's enthusiasm for pets determined their mission to be the most the most trusted pet brands. Today, PetSafe are as passionate about pets as ever and so the story continues by successfully enhancing that special relationship between owners and pets.

Instead, a planned strategy of brand acquisition, including Staywell, Innotek, Petporte, Multivet, Premier and Drinkwell has resulted in additional product categories including Pet Doors, Health & Wellness and Play & Challenge.

Colour Name: Pink
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.

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.

My cat Muffin was a stray, purchased from Cats Protection after having been found caught in a badger trap for an unknown period of time. He's tough as the proverbial old boots, and cool as the proverbial cucumber, but perhaps as a result of his trap trauma he does tend to wolf down his food... and in particular his dried food. I've long given my cats more dried food than wet, as a means of keeping their teeth clean and their gums free of disease, so it was a disappointment that he simply swallowed his dried food whole. Then I discovered the PetSafe ball and it saved the day, fantastic ! When he only gets one or two dried nibbles at a time he makes the effort to crunch them. It also gives him plenty of exercise, biffing it around the kitchen/diner floor and leaping on any dried nibbles that fall out. It took him just seconds to work out, perhaps because I rolled it for him the very first time until a nibble appeared as if by magic. Now he eagerly waits for it to be loaded and placed on the floor in front of him. We have experienced a very strange phenomena whereby he manages to lose the ball. We only live in a small bungalow, so it's not as if there is a vast expanse in which a ball this size can be lost, but somehow he's managed to lose two so far and I've just started him on a 3rd one yesterday. This latest ball now has a length of string tied to it, which I'm hoping will make it more visible if he manages to lose it yet again. Can't recommend this product highly enough.
