PetSafe – SlimCat Food Dispensing Cat Toy

 Last week the dogs in our family got featured with the Busy Buddy Squeak n’ Treat Troog.  This week it is the cats’ turn with the SlimCat Food Dispensing Cat Toy from PetSafe. 😉

When I presented the Troog toy to the dogs they were instantly interested.  They wanted it and they wanted it NOW.  The cat….not so much.  If you have a dog and a cat you will completely understand. Ha!  It took a little enticing to get Pumpkin (our cat) to interact with the SlimCat.

The SlimCat Cat Toy is a ball that holds treats or food.  When the ball is rolled treats drop out.  Once Pumpkin discovered this there was no stopping her! Well, until the treats ran out, of course. *eye roll*

It was quite entertaining watching Pumpkin roll that ball around the room to get the treats out.  She is usually quite subdued and not very playful so we had a laugh over her “playfulness”.  I guess it could also be called bribery since she was purely doing it for the food, but, whatever. I am sure she still had fun. 😉

The SlimCat would be great for cats struggling with weight problems or behavioural issues.  If you fill that ball full of food it can keep a cat busy for quite awhile! And I don’t know if your cat is like ours but food is the BEST motivator! You can adjust the SlimCat to drop only one treat at a time or multiple treats.  At first we had it on the largest setting but once Pumpkin figured out how the toy worked we made her work a bit more for a treat.

If your cat is getting into trouble around the house perhaps a SlimCat could keep him or her occupied long enough to prevent the scratching or chewing that may be happening. 🙂

The SlimCat Food Dispensing Toy is reasonably priced and is a good quality plastic.  You can find it here.  Christmas is coming! Your cat probably deserves a SlimCat in his or her stocking. 🙂

  1. This looks like a good toy to keep a cat busy. Good for times when I go out and the cat needs something to do.

    Sounds like a fun toy for cats and once they’ve got the hang of it they’ll love playing with it. 🙂

    I don’t know if my cat would even go near this, but it looks fun for the kitties!!

  4. Haha. Too true about the dog immediately gravitating to something different while the cat pretends you only bought it for your own sake.

  5. something for my mother in laws cats….

    I need this for my kitty ! he loves his treats but definitely does not work for them. and his tummy has seen better days because of it… doesn’t help hes an indoor cat, 11 years old and just likes to sleep lol

  8. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    I wonder why the dogs weren’t interested in the treats, My daughter’s dog has to do tricks to get a treat and loves treat so of course does the tricks. 🙂

  9. The SlimCat Food Dispensing Cat Toy would be great fun for kittys.

  10. A few of my cats are overweight due to lack of exercise.
