KONG® Cat Roller Treat Dispenser Cat Toy
It's ok, but you have to get creative.
I believe this toy was design with small dogs in mind because the hole that allows the treats to come out is entirely too big. I cannot see a cat eating a treat that would come out if such a big hole.
If it was smaller, I would give this ball a 5 stars.
However, because it's so large, I've had to put napkins folded up on both sides of the inner treat-holding tube so that it blocks the amount of treats that can come out at one point.
By doing this, my cats get a treat every couple of mins, and it keeps them entertained. The chase the ball, and bounce it against everything they can to try to get the treats out, and once they do they start all over again.
I fill this up maybe 2-3 times a month just to give them some fun treats without worrying about weight gain.

Fun product that keeps my cat entertained
I have read a lot about keeping cats entertained and helping them work for their food, so I thought this would be a fun toy for my cat. He loves it - bats it all around the house. The only complaint I have is that the treat hole is pretty big, so he always gets treats when he touches it. I wish it was a little smaller to make it slightly more difficult to get the treats out. I will put 5-6 in at a time, and he gets them out within a couple of minutes.

good concept but....
sturdy, but the design allows too much to be released at one time. It intrigues the cat for 30 seconds because of the dumping of tidbits. Needs to be another mechanism or blockage to prevent this. Also cats rolled it under furniture and can't locate it now!

My cat is a very fat 12 year old. Some time ago I bought a pouch of Temptations which acted like crack on Bear. He kept whacking me on the leg and meowing so piteously that I had to put them away.
When I got the Kong I filled the inner well with Temptations and rolled it toward him. He licked it but when that didn't work ignored all further attempts.
I rolled it in front of him until several treats fell out-which he ate. But he seemed to believe that this was magic only I could accomplish-no grasp of cause and effect whatsoever !
The next day,however,I found it empty. I have to buy more treats to experiment any further.
The Kong is brilliant-rolling it lines up tumblers like safe cracking but without the stethoscope. I'm sure a normal cat would be thrilled at the opportunity of an interactive reward-great idea ! Mine ,it just happens ,and I say this with great affection,is a fat fool
