Aikiou Stimulo Interactive Cat Feeder Review
The Aikiou Stimulo Interactive Cat Feeder takes advantage of your cat’s scooping ability and makes them utilize it more with this food dispenser.
The package contains a circular base with 9 openings where you can put combinations of tubes as food containers. There are 9 tubes included in the package, each having different lengths to represent varying ‘levels’. The six ‘Level 0’ tubes are 1.8in long and the ‘Level 1’ tubes are 3in in length. Tubes are labeled with the max capacity of food each can hold.
The goal is to place treats on tubes with varying depths and allow your cats to reach for them. This will stimulate both their mental ability to solve puzzles and their physical ability to use their paws properly. It recreates the scenario where the cat as predator hunts for its prey by reaching into deep and tight holes.
The work your cats need to exert to get a reward is helpful to slow down their ingestion process. It’s also perfect for cats who vomit often due to overeating at a fast pace. With the help of this Cat Feeder, you can control your cat’s eating habits ‘ maybe even have them lose weight ‘ and stimulate their mental ability at the same time.
This toy is recommended by veterinarians and experts in cat behavior. It has also passed the standards of the American Society for Testing and Materials.
