PetSafe SlimCat Interactive Toy and Food Dispenser Full Review

 

 

 

 

The PetSafe food dispenser and toy is great for cats that eat too fast. The cat can eat and play at the same time, so it prevents your pet from getting bored. This is the prefect way to let your cat get some exercise and still get fed.

 

Product Description

The slimCat Food Ball is a great choice if you need to correct your cat’s bad habit of eating too fast, plus gives your cat some exercise and entertainment. Cats are natural hunters, with this ball she can satisfy her need to hunt while she slims down chasing after her food.

 

You simply fill the ball about ¾ way to the top and adjust the hole to allow one or more kibbles to fall out at a time. As your cat chases the ball, the kibbles fall out. Because only a few kibbles fall out at a time, it takes your cat longer to eat her meals. Plus, she is chasing after the ball, so she has to work for her food and getting exercise.

It is much healthier for your cat to eat smaller portions. It helps her digestive system and helps her body metabolize the food much better. The SlimCat Ball is approved by the FDA. You can wash it by hand or in the dishwasher. It is safe for all breeds of cats, and for cats of any age or size.

 

Features

Features of the Cat Food Ball include:

  • Measures 5.8 x 3.2 x 7 inches.
  • Available in blue, green, orange and pink.
  • Improves alertness.
  • Can be used with most types of cat food.
  • Holds up to 2/3 cup of dry food.
  • Secure lid that the cat can’t take off, so food can only come out of the holes.

 

Pros

  Helps to teach your cat to eat slower.
  Your pet has to work for her food.
  Gives your pet fun and exercise at the same time.
  The adjustable hole allows you to control how much food falls at a time.
  Works with all types of cat food and all types of cats regardless of age or size.
  FDA approved and dishwasher safe.
  Very easy to use.
  Once cats get used to eating this way, they really enjoy it.
  Really fun to watch the cat playing with the ball.

 

Cons

  Your cat may refuse to play with the ball..
  The ball can roll under furniture or into open closets, so you might be constantly helping your cat retrieve the ball from various locations.
  Because the food falls to the floor, other pets can easily steal your cat’s food. This could lead to fights.
  You end up with food all over the floor.
  Very unsanitary. Your floors have to be super clean if you want your pet to eat off them. Even then, she could pick up all sorts of germs and other stuff.
  If you have a dog, he could get a hold of the ball and chew it to pieces.

 

Tips on Using the PetSafe SlimCat Interactive Toy and Food Dispenser

  • Play with the ball with your cat in the beginning to help her get used to the idea.
  • Adjust the holes to let out more food at first so that your cat gets to know that food will come out of the ball if she rolls it around.

 

Conclusion

You can’t beat this feeder. It does everything – keep your cat entertained, feeds her and gives her plenty of exercise. What more could you want? You can play with your cat for even more enjoyment. At just $6.85 (currently) it is cheaper than many pet toys, and this one dispenses food too. It is well worth the cost, especially if your pet has a bad habit of eating too fast or is overweight.

    I love the idea behind the ball. I think it might work better if you started your cat on it when she is young. Older cats are set in their ways and aren’t interested in learning new things. My cats won’t touch it. I also think the holes are too big. Even the smallest setting lets out too much food at one time
