My cat loves to eat. He will eat until he throws up if given the chance. He scarfs his meals and then runs over to eat my other cat's food. It has been annoying having to wait around for cat #2 to finish eating, or having to lock them in separate rooms for meals. That's where the food ball came in. My cat took to it in seconds. He knew his food was in there rattling around and it clicked for him immediately. This video is actually his first time using it, and he successfully ate the whole meal this way. With cat #2 safely eating his dinner from his bowl and cat #1 preoccupied with his new food ball, they finished at the same time and no food was stolen! This has been the PERFECT fix for an annoying multiple-cat situation!

SlimCat feeder ball. Recommended by my vet for my adult cat's continued behavior problems. I could not find one in stores ANYWHERE so i had to order it online. seems to be a new product.

HOW TO USE:
Take off the top of the ball, pour in the desired amount of dry food (i think it holds 3/4 cup or maybe a cup) The food comes out of 3 holes when the pet pushes the ball around. The hole size is adjustable so you can easily change it depending on food size and how easily you want it to fall out of the ball.

I started my cat with bigger holes so more food would come out as he got used to it (as recommended by the instructions) then i made the holes smaller so it would take longer for him to eat. I took away his food dish so he wouldn't get confused. It only took a couple days for him to stop going to his food dish area. he got the idea of the ball right away.

MY OPINION:
I have a bad-behavior kitty who cries constantly for food and misbehaves when i dont feed him. The feeder ball turned out to be the answer to my prayers. I fill the ball and it takes him a couple hours to eat it all. He will push it around for a while and then leave it. When he's hungry again, he'll go back to it and eat the rest. It seems entertaining for him and I hope it gives him some stimulation while i'm at work all day. He is MUCH better behaved, he seems happier, I'm not overfeeding him anymore, and I'M much happier. Thank you thank you feeder ball!

DRAWBACKS:
these are minor things.
-Once in a while the ball gets stuck and my cat misses some of his breakfast until i get home. no big deal.
-he'll miss a food pellet once in a while and leave it on the rug for me to step on.

Slimball + Hamtrac = happier, healther cat. My chubby cat can now eat whenever he wants, but he has to work for it. To keep the ball from getting stuck under furniture, I put it on a foil-lined Hamtrac. Super Pet Run-About Hamtrac.

It took my two fat cats a couple days to get used to it, but now that they have, it works great! It's the only way I serve dry food.
I followed the written instructions and started out with the holes on the large size. As they got the hang of it, I gradually decreased the size of the opening. Now they have to work to get their food. Plus my one cat can't binge (and then vomit) like she's prone to do.

The first time you try to open the balls, it's a little confusing (the instructions come inside the ball). Open the ball by turning the end that says multivet. (The thing along the center seam that looks like it might be a latch is actually a lock; once you adjust the ball to the appropriate size, slide the tab up to lock it into place).

Based on the good reviews here and the setting-locking feature on this ball I decided to give this one a try over the others and I am so glad I did! It is very easy to fill, lock on the difficulty setting and clean.

I also went to check out videos of the ball in action over on YouTube to get a feel for how different cats might take to it so I knew what to expect when sitting with them to train them how it works. I have observed that if they are accustomed to going directly to a food bowl for the kibble, even the smartest cats have to resign to understand that the new program is they have to work for the food and get used to it. It does take some time and patience.

I have two cats. I bought a green ball first for my 3.5 year old to test out since she likes to graze on the dry food a little more often than the other. She eats too fast so this slows her down a bit. She is using it in the easiest setting at the moment, pushing the ball with her nose to dispense the food, but she is using it! At first she wanted me to keep pushing the ball to let the food out for her. Sometimes if she pushed it and nothing came out right away she would think there was no food and stopped trying, but by day 2 while I wasn't looking she emptied the ball on her own. I expect her to use her paws more often as I increase the difficulty from easiest to more challenging.

I purchased a second ball so each cat would have one. The second ball is in the color pink (photos uploaded) and I like this one much better for starting out. We (the cats and myself) are able to see there is food in there and how much. My two are more likely to sniff for the food in it if they can see there is something in it first. I believe my 1.
