#ChewyInfluencer - SlimCat by PetSafe

Today we are reviewing a product that may be of help if you have an overweight kitty. The SlimCat by Pet Safe.

We have bought many Pet Safe products over the years and all have been well made and purrformed as expected. The SlimCat is no exception. 

From Chewy: 

PetSafe SlimCat Interactive Cat Feeder
When your life revolves around napping in the sun, it's easy to add an extra pound or two. But the vets have spoken: 50% of American cats need to slim down! The PetSafe SlimCat Interactive Feeder lets your cat play away the pounds while working for his dinner or treats. Pack the SlimCat feeding ball with your fur baby's kibble, and it distributes an adjustable amount of food as your cat bats and pounces.

Key Benefits
SlimCat can be used by all cats and particularly overweight cats can benefit from the interaction
By providing smaller portions of food throughout the day, it helps to maintain optimum weight as well as improve your cat’s digestion
Improves behavioral problems such as excessive meowing, scratching or aggression
Holds 2/3 cup of dry food or treats
Dishwasher safe, BPA-free plastic

†Capacity is calculated by total volume. When using container, choose a capacity greater than what you need to prevent overfilling and spills.

The idea is to give your cat a bit of exercise to get their meal and therefore help them lose weight. We don't feed dry except as a treat so we filled this up at treat time and off we went.

I can smell those goodies in there Einstein
Give it a whack Rumpy
Coming up. *Whack*

Hey, I did the Whacking Einie
And I get the goodies! 
MOL You got me that time

It's a little fun don't cha think Einie
Yeah, not a fave but the noms add to the fun

Our thoughts.
*It is well made. Easy to fill and easy to adjust. We suggest a uniform size dry food.

*The two treat monsters did poke it around till it was empty which took about 15 minutes. 

*It slows eating. If you have a kitty who gorges the SlimCat may be an answer

*We did not see any appreciable exercise from the SlimCat. Rumpy and Einie are highly active cats and they just pushed it around in a 2-3 foot circle till empty. 

So, will it help you cat lose weight?
It may if used along with a full program of play exercise and measured caloric intake.

We give the SlimCat Interactive Cat Feeder 3 Paws Up. Those were for how well made it was and for ease of use.

A good review, especially the part about the boys knocking the ball about in a small space - not much exercise there, really.

Bet Crockett would like to play wif it.

I bet Binga would get more exercise than you guys because she'd be busy trying to find a way to break it open!

Kali and Shoko had a ball from Temptations. Shoko played with sporadically but lost interest quickly.

Once again cats are smarter than humans. Did not take very long for two cats to finish this off.
Meows, Meep
