Before we spayed our kitten, she wasn’t as hungry and she was eating at a reasonable pace. After she fully recovered from spaying, not only she’s returned to being her active self, but she also eats like the Roadrunner/Speedy Gonzales — I just placed her bowl and about 5-7 mins later she’s licked it clean.
The Intellikat considerably helped slow down her food intake while giving her something to focus on and to play with. We adjust the level of difficulty depending on how hungry she is. When she’s starving, she’s not willing to work through the difficult level so we put it at a level that she most recently mastered and increased the difficulty for times when she’s just a little hungry. It’s a great buy!
