HOW IT WORKS
Nina Ottoson Mix Max Treat Puzzle is a board with 4 spheres on each corner with openings on top where you put the treats and a center spinning piece with 4 indentations, with a shape similar to an Alisee cross. The spheres are blocked by the center piece so your cat needs to spin it, trying to line up one of the indentations of the center piece with a sphere, then drag the sphere onto the indentation and spin this piece again until the sphere reaches one of the two alleys where it can be dragged down to the floor. Just then your cat has the chance to tip the sphere over to get the treats.
Watch a video to see how the Nina Ottosson Mix Max works:
- The toy is good quality, very well made.
- It keeps your cat occupied working for its treats
- Stimulates your cat mentally and psychically
- Good stability on the floor
- The openings of the spheres could be large enough for some cats to lick the treats directly from the holes which could distract them from working for the treats.
- The board may be a little smaller than expected
- This level is too difficult for an average cat
- If your cat gets to master this Treat Puzzle, you can hook it together with the easy level to make the entertainment span longer.
- If your cat eats too fast and then vomits you can serve your cat his meal with this toy. Just make sure to place the kibbles in the toy and watch him work for his food. To do this you need to be present to fill the spheres with kibbles until completing a meal, but if you can’t do this in the daytime do it when you get back home, it’ll still be beneficial for your cat either way.
- As the cat needs to tip the sphere over to get the treats onto the floor it’s a good idea to place a feeding mat under the treat toy.
Nina Ottosson Mix Max Treat Puzzle is a well-made cat treat dispenser toy that will keep your cat occupied trying to get its treats through a challenging puzzle.
As this treat toy dispenser is medium level, is recommended for cats that are highly food motivated because if they aren’t they will quit trying to solve the puzzle due to frustration.
The toy may look a little smaller than shown in the pictures but it’s well constructed and durable. The most important, it’s not made with toxic plastic.
√ I recommend this cat treat toy dispenser for cats that are obsessed with food, inquisitive and active.
x I don’t recommend it if your cat doesn’t care much about food or if you have an elderly kitty.
