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. These toys provide mental stimulation and encourage problem solving, and they simulate foraging and satisfy your cat’s hunting instinct.
Vitakraft Puzzler Treat Dispensing Toy
The Vitakraft Puzzler is a wobbling bowl that you fill with treats. It comes with a bag of Vitakraft’s Meaty Morsel treats, a semi-soft treat that is 70% meat and contains no artificial flavors or colors. And it’s pink!
Putting the Vitakraft Puzzler to the test
Allegra doesn’t like semi-moist treats, so I used freeze dried chicken treats. She was immediately intrigued, but lost interest pretty quickly when she couldn’t get the treats out right away. I generally don’t make her work for her treats, so I think she was a little miffed with me!
I put the toy away for a day or two, then brought it back out, which renewed her interest – and it didn’t take her long to figure it out the second time! Now she chirps and dances around me when she sees me fill the Vitakraft Puzzler with treats, and she can’t wait for me to put it on the floor.
My take on the Vitakraft Puzzler
I love puzzle toys, and the design of this one is simple, but effective. It works on both hard floors and carpet, and it’s easy to clean because it doesn’t have a lot of nooks and crannies. Did I mention that it’s pink?
Vitakraft has been making pet products for 180 years! Established in Germany as a small pet store near Bremen, the company now has 2,000 employees all over the world. You can learn more about their fascinating background on their website https://www.vitakraft.us/cats/. I particularly love that their headquarters building in Germany features a giant sign of their logo along with their motto, “Aus Liebe.” Literally translated, it means “out of love.”
The Vitakraft Puzzler toy is available as a limited release at Walmart.
