Cat Toy Demo – Cat Amazing Toy & Food Puzzle

The Cat Amazing Toy can be used for either a Toy or Food Puzzle.  The concept is simple but effective.  Basically a good quality cardboard box with cutouts that encourage the cat to maneuver the treat or toy out of the box.  Inside the box there is tented cardboard that adds a bit of complexity to the puzzle.  I use a good quality dry kibble, drop a few pieces in and enjoy watching the kitties work the puzzle.  I don’t use treats as they tend to be greasier and can leave marks on the cardboard.

Ella has also enjoyed rescuing toys from the depths of  cardboard and if you place a small toy on the box she can’t resist knocking it in a hole!  I have seen other demos with puffy balls stuffed in the holes and the cats enjoy digging them out.  A little catnip on the fluffy balls and my cats would play that game.

 

 

The toy is reasonably priced, has held up well with four cats and weekly use.  This is our second version since I stepped on the first one in the middle of the night and flattened it!  As with any cat toy, I advise clients to occasionally put the toy away.  After a few weeks bring it back out watch their interest return.

As a DIY project, the Cat Amazing could be constructed from a good quality cardboard box.  A fun project for a rainy day with the kids, the decorating could get very creative!
