Jack and Fleurp love their food puzzle toy


Confession time:  Several members of The Crew are incredibly food motivated.  Fleurp, Jack, and Muffin will do just about anything for food.  (although Muffin will NOT chew meat chunks thank you very much)

Most people have a bag of treats, they open it up, pull out a couple of treats, feed them and they are done. Sadly if I were to try that before I could put the treat bag away my leg would be bleeding from Fleurp pawing at my leg trying to get me to give her more.  I used to buy bags of dry cat food and dispense small handfuls across the floor of my great room to give treats, but I haven't been able to do that since Jack has been having issues, so it gets a little complicated at treat time - so for the most part I haven't been able to do it.

One thing I do enjoy doing though is filling the puzzle toy with freeze dried treats and putting it down for the cats to find later on and have something to do while I'm at work.. ha ha ha.. Ok fine, have something to do while I walk out of the room.  They look at me like they are annoyed they have to 'work' for treats, but as soon as they realize I'm not going to just give it to them, they work feverishly and get right to them.

MOM!  Fleurp's hogging it again!!
OK, so you can tell it is a dog puzzle toy since it is in the shape of a bone, but they don't care.  They are just happy to have treats, and I'm happy to not be holding more treats in my hand when they are out

  5. Binga goes into PANIC mode when she knows that treats are nearby. The other day, she accidentally bit my human's boyfriend's finger in an attempt to get a treat.

  12. We have 2 cats and I've never thought to give them a treat puzzle toy. They do have a toy they enjoy, I wonder if I can toss a few treats in there for fun.

    Ahhhh, thanks for giving me something to think about. They would love something else to play with than the usual.

  14. Sadly none of us are truly motivated by treats - and that's too bad because our human reeeeally likes that puzzle toy concept!

  16. Waffles has a treat toy too! It's called the kitchen cabinet. Imagine my surprise when I opened it up to put the toaster away and there was no room for the toaster.
