Puzzle toys are a great way to keep your cats entertained and mentally stimulated when you can’t play with them. The toys are designed to be filled with treats, and they challenge kitty to retrieve the treats through varied openings in the toys. Most puzzle toy manufacturers recommend using dry food with these puzzles. Since I don’t recommend feeding any dry food, not even as treats, I recommend using freeze dried meat based treats such as Pure Bites or Whole Life.

There’s a huge variety of puzzle toys on the market, but sometimes, all it takes is a little creativity and you can create your own. I wish I could take credit for the Muffin Tin Game, but I actually got the idea from Liz Palika, the owner of Kindred Spirit Dog Training.

I hope you enjoy the video of Allegra playing the Muffin Tin Game (instructions included.)

  1. What a great idea! Ill have to try this out on my foster kitties! they are just discovering toys and treats!!!

  2. Yes! We’ve done this with freeze dried liver and chicken bits; you can really tell what the favorites are by how hard the cats try to get the treats 🙂 No toy will stand in the way of getting a chicken treat in my house!

  3. It is amazing what a little creativity can do. The cheapest toys are also often the most fun for the cat – just think of how much fun they often have with carton boxes 😉
