Review of the Kong’s Cat Wobbler Toy
The Cat Wobbler has an opaque heavy base where you put dry kibbles in and a transparent upper half so you and your cats can see if there’s still food inside the toy.
A small hole is found on the transparent part where food gets thrown out when the toy wobbles back from getting knocked down. The chance that food will get through the small hole limits your cat’s food intake and effectively decreases their eating pace.
Everybody know that catnip is irresistible to almost all cats.
This is why the Cat Wobbler has a furry tail attached at the top of it and it’s laced with catnip for a more rewarding experience. The tail itself is something cats love as they can play with it with their claws out.
To put food inside the toy, just twist it until the two halves come apart. Place the treats on the lower portion and put the parts back together. You can also use the lower half as a food bowl to get your cats accustomed to the toy.
This toy is packed with things you cats will surely love. The catnip itself will grab your cat’s undivided attention to this toy, giving them an enjoyable playtime and mealtime.

The tail with catnip is a really great feature as it gets your cats to keep coming back for more. Kittens who haven’t reached full sexual maturity yet may not be able to appreciate this toy as much as the older cats. The catnip’s effects only work with matured cats.
