These pet sites provide great information to keep your cats happy and healthy:
The Scarecrow - A motion detected water sprinkler that humanely scares off unwanted dogs and cats that get your pet all riled up. These unwanted visitors often cause great stress for your indoor cats.
The Maze Food Bowl – Made for dogs but cats can play too. Cats can use their paws to chase the food out of the maze. Similar games have been made at home using different size pill bottles glued down to a wood surface. The food gets sprinkled between the tubes so the cat has to their paws to dig the food out. Very entertaining… for everyone!
The Pipolino - A cat feeding system that they think is a toy. You control how much food they eat and they have to work to get it out. This entertains and stimulates the hunting instinct while taking care of the tummy too.
