PRODUCT DESCRIPTION (4.0/5)Trixie Mad Scientist cat toy is a very unique treat dispenser designed as a 2-in-1 puzzle. It consists in three beakers covered by lids which have holes on it and a board with pegs where the treats fall into from the beakers.

Trixie Mad Scientist Cat Toy

You have to place the treats inside any of the beakers and cover it with the patterned lids. When the beakers are correctly flipped and balanced upside down, the treats will fall into the pegs on the bottom where your cat will have the second challenge of pulling them out.

As the beakers lids come with different levels of difficulty (one set with large holes and the other with small holes) you will have to put the easiest lid on the beginning or not put a lid at all.

Ideally your cat should start only with one beaker till it gets the hang of it, then incorporate the other two beakers.



  • It is a must to be patient in following the instructions to train your cat to use this toy puzzle, otherwise your cat might not get it.

  • It’s highly recommended to attach the puzzle to a heavy board so your cat does not tip it over trying to defeat the challenge that way.

Trixie Mad Scientist cat toy is a great treat dispenser that performs as advertised. It is important to mention that this puzzle can be a bit challenging for cats even after they get the idea. It seems to be most suitable for intelligent and highly active cats, but I would definitely recommend this toy for all cats.


? I recommend the Trixie Mad Scientist for all cats and especially for:

  • Bored cats that need stimulation
  • Aggressive cats when it comes to getting food
  • Smart and active cats
  • If you have observed that your cat has a high capacity to manipulate things with its paws.
