Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, I've always been a huge fan of puzzle feeders and interactive feeder toys, especially since one of my kitties has Pica. Although my cats have been switched onto a primarily wet food diet, it doesn't mean I stopped using feeder toys for what little kibble I do feed them.

I will say, as soon as I saw these … [Read more...] about REVIEW: Meowfia Premium Cat Cave Beds
