Make mealtime and treat-time a fun "fishing trip" for your favorite feline. Fill the Cat Fishbowl Cat Toy with kitty's kibble or preferred treats and let the fishing begin! The Cat Fishbowl Cat Toy challenges your cat to a stimulating, rewarding play experience, as she works to remove the tasty morsels from inside the wobbly, won't-tip-over bowl.
Made from durable high-impact plastic, the Cat Fishbowl Cat Toy includes a weighted base to prevent the toy from tipping/turning over, and holds enough kibble to feed an entire meal. It's a great way to feed your cat - especially if she needs to lose a few pounds - and encourage increased activity. The Cat Fishbowl Cat Toy cleans easily in your dishwasher (top rack only), includes training tips, and measures 4.25" dia x 3.5" high. For cats of all ages.
Shop all cat toys.
Supervise your cat when she plays with toys. Inspect toys regularly to ensure there are no loose parts your cat could accidentally ingest. Remove loose material immediately. Do not allow your cat to continue playing with any toy that is chewed, broken, or damaged.
Using the Fishbowl as a toy
Place a few tasty treats inside the bowl and let your cat enjoy the challenge of scooping them out. Try semi-moist treats or food to get kitty started, as these can be easier for your cat to grip. Favorite, high-value treats with lots of aroma will really entice your cat and encourage play.
Using the Fishbowl as a feeder
The Fishbowl can be used as a feeder, replacing your cat's food bowl. You can increase your cat's mental and physical health by picking up that food bowl and saying goodbye to free feeding. Enrich your cat's life by giving her the fun job of fishing for her food.
To train your cat to enjoy working for her meals
You will want to give your cat the opportunity to get used to the Fishbowl. Ideally, make only one change at a time and evaluate how your cat responds to the change before proceeding. Make it fun and easy to begin with, increasing the challenge slowly.
- Start by placing the Fishbowl in the bowl or plate from which you usually feed your cat. Place your cat's food around the Fishbowl, but not inside of it at this point. Let your cat eat her meals this way or a few days, getting used to the size and shape of the Fishbowl.
- Once your cat is comfortable eating round the Fishbowl, start placing a few pieces of food and a few high-value treats inside the Fishbowl in addition to the regular meal still placed around the feeder. The treats will encourage her to explore the Fishbowl. You may want to use some semi-moist treats or food to get kitty started, as they can be easier for your cat to grip.
- When your cat has gotten the hang of fishing the treats and/or food out of the Fishbowl, you can start placing more of her meal in the Fishbowl and less in the original bowl or plate. Soon, your kitty will be happily fishing for her food from the Fishbowl feeder and you can remove the bowl or plate.
Using Multiple Fishbowls
Whether using the Fishbowl as a toy or feeder, you can increase your cat's activity level by placing food or treats in a couple different Fishbowls and hiding them around the house. Place them in different rooms and on varied levels so kitty can hunt the Fishbowls as well as fish for the prize!
Remember to monitor your cat's TOTAL caloric intake to help keep her fit. Don't over-treat so she doesn't overeat!
Hand wash the Fishbowl with warm, soapy water or wash in the top rack of your dishwasher. Air dry or use the "no heat" setting of your dishwasher.
