To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Delivery was really bad. The toy did not appear to fit well in its original box. And no additional packaging was used to keep the box intact. But its a great toy, my cats enjoyed it with treats and kibbles.
Quand Gaspard et Ozzie ont vu arriver ce nouveau distributeur, il ne leur a pas fallu longtemps pour comprendre comment ça fonctionne :-) Regardez la vidéo pour comprendre. C'était la 1ère fois, et ce fut une réussite ! Nous avons dû nous séparer d'Ozzie 2 jours plus tard (Gaspard, le plus vieux, étant de plus en plus agressif avec elle, nous l'avons rapatriée dans sa 1ère famille d'accueil, qu'elle a retrouvé avec joie !). Bref. Gaspard s'est retrouvé tout seul avec ce distributeur, et ce fut une petite révolution. Durant 4 ans il a utilisé une gamelle automatique, qui lui distribuait 6 repas par jour. Même si ça ne se voit pas sur la vidéo, Gaspard est TRES glouton (c'est pour cette raison que nous avions adopté le distributeur automatique). En quelques jours, il s'est bien habitué au Catit Senses 2.0. Et maintenant nous lui donnons son repas en 3 fois (matin, midi, soir, tout simplement). A chaque fois il prend son temps pour manger, et manifestement il est très content de manger comme ça. Il réussi même à laisser quelques croquettes, qu'il retrouve un peu plus tard... une première pour notre ogre poilu. Bref, je recommande ce distributeur !
We've all been there: you buy your cat a toy and then watch while he ignores it and plays with packaging it came in.
The food tree comes in a box cleverly designed to turn into a cat space ship. Wicked Willie Wonka was out when it arrived. I assembled the tree (easy to do) and turned the box into a space ship (cutting required). Then I waited for WWWonka to return. When he did, he went straight to the tree and very quickly worked out how to use it (I love him dearly but he's not the smartest cat I've met).
The space ship box is now gathering dust with his discarded, unused toys while the tree is used every day for breakfast and dinner. William has been overweight and had diabetes so he's on a very strict diet. His philosophy around food is 'I sees it; I eats it' and mealtimes used to be over in seconds which left me with a bored, whiney cat who'd taken to eating my sweaters and licking random patches of the carpet. With the tree, the same amount of food takes about 15 minutes for him to access and eat. He's more relaxed and interested in life and has virtually stopped trying to eat non-food items.
I highly recommend this item and will buy more from the Catit Senses range.
Our kitty (Luna) is a coward. She once farted and scared herself. A piece of paper fell after a gentle breeze wafted through the window, and nearly had to take her to therapy. In short, she, a special little snowflake.
Moving on, set this bad-boy up. Put biscuits in it. Stood back proud, as though I had completed a 10,000 piece Ikea furniture puzzle, and waited for the magic to happen.
Three days later.
Kitty's voice is going where she has meowed so much from hunger. Bone is visible where she's been rubbing against my leg so often in an attempt to get me (the slave) to feed her (the master). Tapping the tree, manipulating her paw to drag / push the biscuits around didn't help in showing her "how it's done".
Evening of day three.
I her a biscuit drop. There's a paws (bwahahaha!). A satisfying crunch sound of calcium working it's magic through kitty biscuits.
Story aside. Came in two parts, nice and easy to setup. Shame the base is hollow, as it can be quite noisy when the biscuits drop on to it. Otherwise, pretty sweet!
A good concept and idea in theory but in practice no use at all. We have average sized cats, mid age who are adventurous and inquisitive but as soon as the food runs out they are able to just pull the whole thing over with ease releasing the rest of the food over the floor. It is not very sturdy or strong and would not recommend unless you have kittens that can be trained to use this. Otherwise, normal cats will be too strong and bold for this to work. Disappointed purchase.
(Reviewed by Norman the cat) I like to sit on top of this and try to command the treats to fall.. sometimes they listen, sometimes they do not. I find a nudge helps. oh and the treat taste so good when they get to the bottom.
This worked out great, we wanted something to give the cats more of a challenge than a standard biscuit bowl. It took our fluffy cat no time at all to figure it out but our smaller cat wasn't so sure about it for a couple of days but now he's into it :)
It takes our (14 months old) cat more than 5 minutes to eat his food now and he does not beg for more afterwards. We use it every day. In three weeks he has become quite efficient with getting the food out but it is still a stimulating experience for him (and it still takes him over 5 minutes to get everything out). The holes for the paws are big enough, the top hole is small so he cannot stick his head in and the base is stable so the cat does not knock the feeder over. It is also entertaining to watch. We used its 'spaceship' box as addition to his tunnel system.
