LickiMat Classic Buddy Slow Feeder Mat For Cats Is A Healthy And Engaging Way To Feed Your Pet
Designed and recommended by vets, this slow feeding mat is designed to provide your cat with an enriching, tasty activity that helps to enhance their overall health and wellbeing

It is an engaging tool, that challenges and rewards your pet over time, by giving your pet small portions of food or treats, every time they engage with the mat.

Cats need mental and physical stimulation to keep them happy, healthy, and occupied. Cats that are not stimulated, or rewarded for engaging in time occupying behaviour, can begin to display mischievous and problem behaviours around the home. A licking mat is a way to engage your cat with an activity that both occupies and rewards

The mat makes eating an interactive activity, rather than just a meal

The texture of this mat makes it perfect for applying paste, wet, raw, and dry, foods and treat
It has a complex surface that allows the application of different types of foods and treats mixed together, or separately
Once your pet's favourite morsels are spread over the surface, they can pick up every bit until the mat is squeaky clean
The textured surface makes licking a challenge, which slows the process of the pet eating and prolongs their enjoyment of the special snack
The mat uses a small volume of tasty food or treats to provide a fun, lasting activity with fewer calories
You can even freeze the treats to make the fun last longer
The mat is compatible with any spreadable food or treats
It is excellent for use as a distraction during challenging experiences, or as a reward system during pet training – for example:

Use for teaching pets to be still for grooming, bathing, nail clips and vet examinations
Encourage your pet to be calm and settled during car travel
Rewarding your pet for calm activity around the home or just relaxing in their bed
Can provide a point of focus and rewards to distract them during fearful events
The mat is a perfect feeder for cats – it can help to reduce a common, messy cat behaviour (removing food from the bowl and eating off the floor) because:

the flat surface makes no contact with sensitive whiskers, so it is a gentle feeding experience for the cat
the mat allows for all-round vision while the cat is feeding so they feel less vulnerable
the spreading and pressing of the food or treats across the mat, means the cat is in a crouched posture while it eats, which is a more natural, comfortable and healthy feeding position
Using the mat can assist with oral health care

The licking action generates the production of saliva that can help maintain good oral health
The textured rubber surface assists in scraping food particles and bacteria off your pet’s tongue to promote a fresher breath
The mat can be used to slow down feeding rate

The mat is fantastic for slowing down mealtime and to stop your cat gulping down their food in seconds – making it ideal for cats who are prone to vomiting, bloating, or gagging from eating too fast
Helps to prevent overfeeding and can assist with managing hunger - the licking action makes food last much longer and a small volume of food can be placed on the mat, allowing you to provide smaller, and more frequent feeds
Control of food portions and added energy required to access the food can assist with weight control
