We have featured pet gadgets for cats here at Mintgadgets before, most notably the Phantom Mouse Teaser, Ceramic Pet Fountain, and the Scratch N Sniff Live Scratching Post. However today we bring to you the Aïkiou Cat Stimulo Feeding Station.
Some household cats can let’s be honest get a little bit over weight, this is because they are not out and about hunting for food and being as active. They generally eat and are awake for a few hours before lying down and sleeping for the majority of the day. To prevent your cat from doing this and to entertain them a little bit many pet toys have been developed. The Aïkiou Cat Stimulo Feeding Station was created just for this.
The Aïkiou Cat Stimulo Feeding Station is an interactive cat food dish that challenges your cat during meal times. Food is spread out in each of the cat food bowls or tubes as they look more like, and the cat must place its paws into each one to try and fish out the rewards. This encourages your cat to work a little bit for their food rather than just eat it out of a normal cat food bowl. It has the distinct advantage of encouraging older cats that may have gone off their food to hunt, inviting their predatory instincts to return.
