If you’re someone who refers to February 14th as Single’s Awareness Day, you’re probably already lamenting your lack of plans for the day. No need to let your let your cat suffer from lack of activity as well, as you can invest in a Cat Activity Center with 5 different game modules to entertain your cat’s 5 senses. The globe game resembles a fish bowl and requires your cat to fish the treat out with her paw. Because cats aren’t able to see close moving objects as much detail as humans, they’ll need to rely on their senses of smell and hearing. The peg game allows the cat to make out the treat visually from a distance and then map out a strategy to retrieve it. The alley game gives the playful option of lying down while poking and scooping treats out with their paws, claws or even toes. The tongue is suited for liquid treats since the slits hinder the cat from using their paws. Last but not least, the tunnel game’s mouse hole is ideal for stalking and poking at toys and treats hiding inside. The activity center can be used to regulate a cat’s diet, or keep a mischievous cat busy. Below is a video of the activity center in use.

  • 5 different activities maximizes entertainment
  • Features instructional booklet
  • Good distraction for mischievous cats

  • Treats not included
