A ball with a little hole in it and inside sits a treat. The cat – according to theory – will play with it in order to get the treat. Exercise and reward.
I fill it and push it Patty’s way. Our fat cat pushes it back, grows bored quickly and leaves the treat behind. An hour later, on her way to her food dish, she pushes at the ball and the treat easily spills out. She eats it, moves on to her food bowl.
Most of the time, the ball is kicked by us, the humans, by mistake, on our way down the hall or through the living room. Patty sleeps.Print
