How to Make a Cat Puzzle Feeder

Clare Hemington DipCAPBT

Just a few years ago none of us had even heard of cat puzzle feeders (also known as interactive cat feeders), let alone bought one. However, the market now seems to be awash with an amazing array of innovative feeders, usually marketing them interactive cat toys.

I'm a huge fan of these - not only do they provide stimulation for cats by encouraging them to forage for their food but they can also slow down the food intake of cats cats who are prone to obesity and means they eat in smaller portions.

However, you don't have to spend a fortune on an ultra complex or flashy feeder that your cat won't recognise as such! With a little bit of imagination you can make your own as the following photos and videos show!

But if the idea of taking glue to cardboard doesn't appeal, then here are some videos of cats working out how to use some of the more complicated varieties of feeder which are available in the shops.
