My cat Pebbles is food obsessed and gets bored easily, so my friend told me about cat treat balls which you fill with food and the cat has to roll it around to get the food out. It sounds like a good idea for Pebbles so I was going to get one but I can't put dry cat food in it because it makes him constipated and the vet said to soak it in water before giving it to him but he won't eat it. I thought of putting chicken/ham in the treat ball but I want to give him this treat ball every day when I'm at school so I thought it would be unhealthy to give him chicken/ham every day? What can I put in his treat ball?

if you look on websites like zooplus there are an awful lot of cat treats available.. like sweets really... but nowadays more and more of them are healthy options. Like strips of dried pure meat... that kind of thing. Or just cheese flavoured cat sweets, or the malt cat sweets, or whiskas cat treats... there are literally tons of these things nowadays.. though do watch what size you buy as the treats can't be bigger than the holes in the snack ball.

well i have never had a cat constipated due to a few whiskas sweets every day in their treat ball. Check the packaging about recommended daily amounts and take it from there... maybe start with well under what they say you can give, and if that goes ok, take it from there and give one extra treat every day.

Have you ever heard of pysillium husk for chronic constipation? It's a natural remedy and I had a lot of success with it in the past. Might be worth trying some of that. (to help his poop troubles... not in his treat ball ;), lol).

I was just looking through my cat treat box (yes I have a box full of this stuff, lol) and I have two that claim to actually add digestion... one is Gimpet Malt Kisses, they look like little kissy lips... and the other is from Grau (grau miezelinos chicken treats) and the packaging is written in German so not sure what it does exactly, but it does say good for the stomach and aids digestion. Maybe they would be good for your kitty??

Thank you, I can try these with Pebbles, are they sold in pet shops?

Dried duck strips! Tiny tiny little strips of pure dried duck meat! Cats and dogs go nuts for them!

They also do small chunks of dried tuna
