Product Review – PetSafe Slimcat Treatholder Ball
If you want to keep your cat slim, yet give them something to do in order to get their treats, PetSafe Slimcat may be right for you.
The ball is made of durable plastic, with holes to add the treats into the ball. Then roll the ball on the floor and watch your cat chase after it to get the treats out. Your cat might grab it and roll it around on the floor, or they may get on their back and kick the treats out. Either way this will provide your cat some mental stimulation and provide you hours of fun and laughter, watching the antics your cat will get into.
Chasing after this toy will help overweight cats to slim down. For cats that are a healthy weight, having their treats in this ball will help keep them entertained and stimulated. You can choose what types of treats to put in the ball. I cooked up some chicken jerky, cutting the chicken into tiny, round pieces and then putting them in the ball when cooked. (Chicken jerky can be made by greasing a cookie sheet with olive oil, cutting up chicken into small bite size pieces, putting it in the oven at 200F, check after an hour, leave in oven until cooked, cool and then serve. You can use this recipe for cats OR dogs).
Final verdict: I would recommend this toy, especially for those with overweight cats. I recommend letting the cat sniff the ball and get interested in it, with treats already inside it, and then throwing it and letting them chase it around. If your cat is into chasing objects, this should provide them some great play time. Isis loves to chase things around, and she has loved this toy. It is one of her favorites. The chicken jerky is just an added touch that makes her even more excited for playtime. I also sit there and throw it for her, interact with her, which helps to create a bond between pet and pet parent. It is for sale for a very reasonable price on wag.com. I hope your cat enjoys it as much as mine does!
