It’s safe to say when it comes to buying your cat a new product, it can get pretty overwhelming! With so many treat dispensers on the market it can be hard to know which one you should choose for your beloved furry feline.
For those of you who may shy away from buying treat dispensing balls for your pets, we are here to tell you the advantages these small toys can have, whilst making a huge impact. Treat dispensing balls are both physically and mentally stimulating for our cats. It’s important to be aware that lockdown has not only been hard on us humans but also our pets. As owners, we must encourage our cats to engage in active play as this can improve our pet’s well-being as well as eliminate boredom.
One of the obvious factors of these products is they promote exercise. These toys are specifically useful during wintertime or on rainy days when your kitty might not get outside as much as they’re use to.
Treat dispensers are also great products that will help your pet with issues such as separation anxiety. Whilst some of us may have to leave the house for most of the day to go to work or do the food shop we can’t always give our pets the companionship they deserve. You can leave the house with ease knowing your kitty has something to focus on and has food to keep them occupied throughout the day.
Most importantly, they are fun! Our cats thrive off the challenge and reward of working for food. For our indoor cats, it is important you can give them an outlet for their hunting/prey instincts so erratic behaviours are less encouraged.
We’ve trawled the world wide web, so you don’t have to and stumbled across a fantastic treat dispenser that supports a great organisation whilst encouraging your cat to stay active.
Puzzle Paws is a colourful treat dispenser that urges your cats to get active. The ball is designed to dispense treats after a round of play, giving your furry felines an outlet for hunting/prey instincts. During these uncertain times, it is important we keep our cats both mentally and physically stimulated, whilst also improving their wellbeing by giving them an activity that will keep them engaged throughout the day.
