My human won a door prize at the Cat Writers Conference that wouldn’t fit in the Grab Bag prize box so we got to keep it. (Incidentally, some of you asked who the Grab Bag winner was — she is involved with Forever Home Feline Ranch, so these toys and treats went to an awesome place!) Binga was dying to get the box open… because it involved food!
The Aikiou Stimulo Cat Feeding Station and Activity Center is supposed to be a toy to help keep kitties active and stop them from eating their food too fast. I don’t have this problem, but certain other kitties in this house certainly could eat their meals at a more relaxed pace. The idea here is to put the food in these tubes so the cats have to work harder to get at their meal.
There were detailed instructions that said it would take several days for a cat to figure out how it worked. There were also three sizes of tubes — beginner, intermediate and advanced. My human didn’t think we were so dumb (except for Boodie), so she stuck in an advanced tube right away. And since we generally do not eat dry food, she threw some treats into the tubes. I was the first kitty to figure out how to get the treats, probably because I love to get my paws into everything.
But the moment Binga saw how I did it, she totally copied me! She and Boodie were all over the Stimulo and I couldn’t get a paw in edgewise. Actually, Boodie didn’t even try to get a paw in — she never did figure out how it worked, so Binga got all the treats.
Can I play this game all by myself?
