feline foraging toys
This puzzle is not for the faint of heart. It could be scary for some cats. But if your cat is a master forager and does not mind some noise this is worth a shot. Much like the children’s vacuum or lawnmower toy that had the popping balls in it, this toy works on the same mechanism of action. The food is the popping balls in this case. A fun game if your cat also enjoys when treats or kibble are thrown.
Buggin’ Out by Nina Ottosson
Another stationary foraging gem! This puzzle can be used for wet or dry food. There are essentially three levels of difficulty built into this toy. Stationary puzzles as a whole are easier for most cats but when there are multiple moving parts it has the potential to present a challenge.
Mousin’ Around by Petstages
These cute little mice are such great foraging toys! They are small, easily manipulated, offer appealing textures, and can be picked up and carried around the house just like real prey! They do not hold a lot of food so they are great for portion control as well. They really require some batting around to get the food to dispense and are not quite as easy as one might expect.
Melon Madness by Nina Ottosson
This is an intermediate level stationary foraging toy for wet or dry food. The cat must learn to uncover the wells by moving the “seeds” or green pegs to uncover the snacks below.
Doc & Phoebe’s Wet Food Feeder
If your cats “scarf and barf” this food puzzle is for you! A cat’s stomach is quite small, about the size of a ping pong ball, so when they eat too quickly vomiting is often the result. Slow feeders like this one help make the meal last a little longer.
