Question: How do you keep an energetic house cat on a diet from constantly begging for food?
I recently had this problem with my one year old Birman, Fairy. Fairy needed to slim down (or at least stop gaining), and protested loudly at her reduced meal sizes.
Lyric, my Labrador Retriever, happily destroyed the cat food-dispensing ball, so I looked into other puzzle-type food toys for cats. As I was describing one (the Aikiou Stimulo Activity Food Center, where cats pull kibble out of tubes) to my husband, David, he suggested that we could make our own. We grabbed a cardboard box and paper towel and toilet paper rolls and got creative.
