The Catit Senses 2.0 Food Tree is a great toy for entertaining your cat whilst slowing down their eating!
We’ve covered cat toy & product manufacturer Catit in the past (click here for our review of their indoor cat fountain) and we’re big fans of their products. As we mentioned previously, we love that Catit listen to their customers and roll suggestions into revisions of their products, releasing updates that include improvements based on feedback from owners. Available for £15.00 from Amazon.co.uk at the time of writing (or £9.99 for the previous model), the Catit Senses 2.0 Food Tree is a well-priced toy that’s great for the hungriest of cats! Let’s take a closer lookout the new model and see what’s been improved.
How the Catit Senses 2.0 Food Tree works
The food tree is split into three progressively smaller sections, each with holes in the side making the interior accessible. In between each section is a divider, this time with holes in the bottom. Once kibble or treats are placed into the top-most section, your cat has to push the kibble through the holes in the divider until the food drops to the bottom section, when the food will drop into the integrated tray. Watch the video below to show the food tree in action:
The 2.0 refers to this being the 2nd generation of Senses Food Tree, and the new design features a number of improvements over the original model:
- Easy to disassemble and clean
- Narrow top opening, preventing easy access to food
- Wider base, reducing the chance of being pushed over by cats trying to cheat!
Slowing down your cat’s eating
As well as stimulating your cat’s natural hunt/catch instinct, the Catit Senses 2.0 Food Tree is brilliant at stopping your cat from eating too quickly. Our rescue cats in particular have both had problems with wolfing down their food, often to the point where this would make them poorly shortly after mealtime, so we were curious to see how well the food tree would work.
In practice, the product worked just as advertised. The cats’ initial hesitation was overcome by curiosity as soon as they realised there was kibble inside! Watching them gradually work out how to use the toy, slowly pushing food down each level until the ‘reward’ of reaching the bottom was achieved was wonderful in itself.
What we also liked is the customisation; the Catit Senses 2.0 Food Tree can also be set to different levels of difficulty by rotating the middle separator and changing the sizes of the holes between each section. We found the cat tree equally effective with both kibble as part of a main meal, or just with a handful of treats. Whilst the larger base certainly does help, big Alf being the menace that he is still managed to topple it over once, so we added some additional weight to the base of the product.
Overall, we really like the Catit Senses 2.0 Food Tree; it’s a useful, effective, entertaining product for both cats and their owners, and really works in stopping your cat from eating too quickly. Turning mealtimes into a game is a great way to keep indoor cats entertained, and based on this we’ll definitely be checking out what else is on offer in the Senses 2.0 range!
The Catit Senses 2.0 Food Tree is available to buy from Amazon, priced at £10.50.
