The Monthly Meow: Catit Treat Ball

Welcome back!

It’s that time of the month again, where Daechir and I bring you a review for a product just for your furry friends, courtesy of Chewy.com!

This month we’ll be talking about the Catit Treat Ball Toy.

There are very few claims about this product, basically all stating to keep your cat occupied, and reduce feline obesity by making them work for their snacks.

This retails for $4.99 on Chewy.com, and are available in pink and blue.

Now, with all of these details out of the way, let’s take a look at the actual product!

The ball itself is actually pretty weighty and sturdy, so the chances of your cat breaking this are incredibly slim, in my opinion. Unless your cat is The Hulk. Very small cats wouldn’t get a whole lot of use out of this, because it would most likely be too heavy for them to really knock around. Any larger cat shouldn’t have an issue, though. Daechir weighs about 4 lbs, and she has no issue playing with this.

So as you can see, you basically drop the treat in the ball, and it spirals to the bottom. There are different openings if you rotate the top, from fully open, to the small hole you see above, to completely closed.

The ball rolls really easily, but the treats will get stuck in the bottom, so I occasionally have to shake it a bit to get the treats rolling around again.

Now for the most important part, how does Daechir feel about it?

As we recall, Daechir tried out the Friskies Pull and Play toy a few months ago and really wasn’t interested at all. However, I’m happy to report that she actually has been having a lot of fun with this!

She doesn’t necessarily go out of her way to play with it, but if I initiate, she has a lot of fun chasing it around and sniffing the treats out.My cat is incredibly picky when it comes to toys, but something about this just really gets her interested and engaged.

Ultimately, I would definitely recommend this for cats who are in need of a little more exercise, or a very active kitty who needs to blow off a little steam. This is definitely the best treat dispenser type toy I’ve found, and if this sounds like something your cats would enjoy, definitely give it a try!

And that’ll be it for today’s post. I hope you’ve enjoyed this, and if you have please subscribe to receive email notifications of future posts!

And as always,

thanks for stopping by!
