A Treat Workout with the PetSafe SlimCat | #ChewyInfluencer

It’s no secret that cats love to eat. The KCC Gang gets fed 3 meals per day at specific times, though if they had it their way, they would get 24 meals a day – one every hour. At least. With treats on the half-hour. Thanks to the strict feeding schedule the cats are on, they are all slim and trim. Though we don’t have any weight issues here, it can never hurt to spice up treat and/or meal time with a fun, interactive toy or game – like the PetSafe SlimCat!
The PetSafe SlimCat is an interactive feeder designed to help your cat “play away the pounds while working for his dinner or treats.” All you have to do is fill the SlimCat with your cat’s favorite dry food or treats and adjust the holes to the desired size, and there you have it! Your cat will smell the food/treats inside and roll the ball around, which will distribute the food/treats through the adjustable openings. It is great for cats who may fall into that 50% of overweight cats, as they have to work to get their food, AND you can easily control the portion of food they are getting.
Even if you don’t have an overweight cat, the SlimCat can still be used to create a more interactive feeding experience. Cats thrive best in environments where they are stimulated physically and mentally, and this toy helps to do just that.
Like I said, none of my cats are overweight, but they enjoyed chasing the rolling SlimCat all over the house. I don’t feed them dry food, so I filled it with some of their Greenies treats and adjusted the holes to the smallest size so they would have to work extra hard to get the treats out. It kept them entertained for hours, and I had fun watching them too.
