Catit Design Senses Food Maze Cats see and hear sights and sounds that are beyond our perception. They experience the world in ways we can only imagine with their unique sense of taste, touch and smell. Catit Design Senses products are made with your cat in mind and designed to appeal to all of your cat's senses. Catit Design Senses products can be used individually or combined together to create a complete Sensory Activity Center for your pet. The Catit Design Senses Food Maze is the smart way to feed your cat. The cat moves the food (or treats) through the maze by pawing at it through the side openings until it drops down to the food tray. The Food Maze appeals to your cat's sense of touch and taste while encouraging mental and physical activity. By making your cat work for its food; and monitoring the amount of food added to the maze, the Food Maze can be a valuable tool to help with overeating or obesity problems.

If I had a cat with half a brain cell, I'd imagine this is a great way to feed them. It's decent quality and easy to put together and dismantle for cleaning. I'm not withholding stars just because my cat is a lazy imbecile.
Another observation is that the unit needs quite a bit of space as the cat needs access to all sides to be able to get all biscuits out. It’s not something you can just sit in a corner, as your cat won’t be able to access all biscuits.
2. Tag: Die Katzen beschleicht der Verdacht, dass das Spielzeug den Menschen doch nicht gefällt. Diese Wegwerfgesellschaft... Die pelzigen Retter erbarmen sich des zugegebenermaßen schön designten Gegenstandes. Halbherzig spielen sie bis ein schmackhafter Leckerbissen aus dem Turm fällt... Ein positives Omen? Vielleicht ist erhöhte Anstrengung gefragt, trotz der Tatsache, dass geometrisch-spaziale Gleichungen gelöst werden müssen, um an den Katzensnack zu kommen...
7. Tag: Die Menschen haben nun endlich auch begriffen, dass dieses Designer-Spielzeug für Katzen bestimmt ist. Gehorsam befüllen sie den Turm täglich, auf dass die Katzen ihr Snack-Sodoku spielen können, welches Sie nunmehr auf Grund immer wachsender Geschicklichkeit und natürlich ihrer angebornen Intelligenz in kürzester Zeit absolvieren.
It is early days, but Grace has the manual dexterity to move things around in her dirt box and provided she washes her paws, I hope that she will grasp the concept of the Food Maze. So far she has eaten from the tray at the bottom and hissed at it. We are hoping that eventually she will reach inside the maze through one of the various apertures at three levels and start to hook the food out.
I must admit that for the price, I think that this item represents good value and hopefully Grace will soon be hooking out dried cat food into the tray, or at worse onto the surrounding and attached mat. It certainly seems well constructed and I am confident that given a few days of starvation, either she or we will give in. So why four stars and not 3 or 5? Basically I feel that this item will be devil to keep clean and will need disassembly and reassembly every day so 4 it is.
More reports to follow.
Grace has spent a tortured day investigating the imposter in her house in the form of the food maze. Both my wife and I have shared with Grace our interpretation of how a cat should interact with this toy. Grace has stared at me like I am an idiot and tried to swipe the food from my wife's finger; claws out! We have not fed Grace today, except to place her ration in the maze and left her and the cleaner to get on with it. I fear that we might be seeking a new cleaner shortly, either because she has resigned or less likely, but possible, that she has been devoured by a far from content cat. Still hopeful though.
Grace appear s to have given up :-( she stubbornly refuses to take the food out of the maze and sits and looks at it. We have tried to tempt her by placing the tail of her favourite toy mouse into the opening at the top and inviting her to paw it through one of the side vents; no interest. We have placed pieces of dried food along the periphery of each of the openings; no interest. I must say that Grace is not the brightest of cats, but we remain pleased with the product as Grace is most definitely looking trimmer. Let's hope tomorrow is more positive.
Grace is not emaciated yet! but I have to admit that she does not appear to be happy. Both my wife and I have tried the mouse, changed the location of the feeder but unlike the Tom cat on the product picture, Grace has not set foot on the mat yet along put her face or paw into the top. She has tried unsuccessfully to get her mouse's tail out once now, but her ration stays put. I am fearful that soon the feeder will fill up to overflowing and then Grace might just start to gorge herself.
My wife is going through the training session again and whilst Grace is meowing and looking sad, I think that the sadness is more an animal's intuition and sensitivity regarding a human losing their mind, rather than hunger. I gather that Grace has removed a number from the absolute top of the feeder this evening and the mood of gloom and despondency is lifted for the time being. We live on in hope.
Day 5 and Day 6
We feel a breakthrough might be coming. Increasingly Grace has become more confident (hungry) and whilst we are pleased that she will swipe a paw at the mouse tail, unless she has dislodged a piece of food through knocking the tower, we are not certain that she has managed to get a single piece out trhough the holes otherwise. We are feeding her small amounts to prevent the RSPCA being called by our 14 year old, who aspires to be a vet, but I fear that soon the White Van with 5 letters emblazoned on the side and a man/woman in uniform will arrive; probably accompanied by a TV crew (which reminds me I need to get a haricut just in case).
Tomorrow will be by last review on this item. I fully expected our cat to have fathomed this contraption out by now and whilst I have no doubt that some owners have trained their more intelligent cats to amuse themselves to feed from this item, i fear that Grace will not master this skill. I am extremely fond of her and would not want her in any way to suffer, so unless it is emptied tomorrow, I fear it will be consigned to the shed.
Grace has still not mastered the maze, but she has identified that I have placed a trail cam to follow her every move! I must admit that she has never impressed me as an intelligent cat, but she is obviously more able to communicate than I thought; if you look at our video you can see that she is trying to send me a message.
Sturdy, easy to assemble (clear instructions) and long lasting (it's been outside in all weather for several years and I've not had any issues). No problem staying upright even when being attacked by a large duck
Everything is plastic and easily dismantled. Very easy to clean/maintain.
