The Hagen Catit Treat Ball is a small ball that dispenses small dry treats as it rolls around the floor. Its rolling motion will keep your cat entertained and satisfied when treats pour out of the toy. The ball has a screw-shaped, twisted coil inside that acts as a barrier to control the amount of food dispensed by the toy.
It has an adjustable opening at one end which functions both as refilling and dispensing hole. You need to twist the ball against the bottom cap to switch between the two holes. The bigger hole is wide enough for filling the toy with dry treats and the smaller hole is ideal for food dispensing.
You can adjust the food-dispensing hole to make it easier or more difficult for treats to come out. This feature allows you to control your cat’s eating habit by adjusting it so that only one piece of treat will come out at a time. Coupled with the nudging activity it requires, this makes it ideal for reducing your cat’s weight and prevent overeating.
You can even choose to completely close the hole to make it just a toy ball your cats can play with.
