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.
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.
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
*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.
