The following has been adapted from material on the ASPCApro and Purina website. Puzzle feeders, toys or devices that contain food encourage your cats to engage in predatory behaviour. Manipulating the device provides stimulation and exercise.
A variety of such puzzles can be found at most pet supply stores. They can also be made easily from cardboard tubes, egg cartons, or anything else that will contain food. Ensure that food cannot be dislodged or acquired without some effort on the cat’s part.
For cats that have special dietary needs, use the appropriate kibble in the puzzles.
