Tips & Tricks
When starting with any interactive toy, please keep it simple. Place the toy near their feeding area with the compartments open and place their kibble in the holes. Your feline friend will likely check it out, sniff and walk away but have patience with your cat. Cats may keep coming back to the puzzle several times or more before they decide it's cool and start to paw or eat the kibble.
Once your cat is 100% comfortable with eating from the compartments, then very slowly start to cover one or two of them partially, this will allow your cat to see their food still but have to put a little bit of effort into getting to their food. Once your cat is used to that, start to cover the rest with kibble still visible and once your cat understands, keep making it complicated. Just remember to continue advancing the difficulty slow so your cat can fully understand what needs to be done; never discourage your cat as you always want it to be a positive experience. Each cat is unique in its way of hunting.
To encourage your cat, try adding smelly treats or some wet food to the mix; cats hunt using their nose so the smell will attract them. Once your cat can solve this puzzle try moving it around to different areas to keep them on their paws and encourage them to use their hunting instincts.
As always, please supervise your cat with this puzzle at all times. If your cat decides to chew on parts, please redirect and correct the behaviour. Start over if needed and keep their attention back on the kibble or treats.
