The Nom Machine

Hi everybuddy! It's good to be back in the Blogosphere!
In my house, a commonly heard phrase is "Lishy! What are you eating off the floor?!?!?!".Now, I have an excuse. We have this new CatIt tower to eat out of. In order to eat, we have to play with our food. There are three layers on the inside of the top section, all with holes in them. When we get the food to the bottom, it falls out into the white rim on the bottom.
Sometimes we get a bit over-enthusiastic, and the food shoots over the top of the rim when it falls out, onto the floor. When I make that happen, instead of hearing "don't eat junk off the floor, Kittenboy", I hear "oh you are such a clever little fluffyhead, look at all that food you swished out!".

I think that makes me the winner in this little scenario :)
Sorry about the lack of colour in the photos, mum found the monochrome setting on the camera...

Wow, now that's a nom machine! We've never seen anything like it!

Marg said...

That is a neat machine. We would have to work on that all day. What fun to have a yummy reward for pushing the food around. Take care and have a great Sunday

Lishy, you get to play with your food! How cool!! Mom says she would like something like that for us.

What a fancy food dispenser! It's good that kitties have to work for their food once in awhile... ;)

Very fun!

What a cool cat feeder! I mean how cool for you. I mean glad it's not me! I much prefer the mom food dispenser.

Your mom is inspiring my mom to play with her camera settings a bit more.

Hello, darling Lishy. I am a bit confused, dear one. Are you the Nom Machine or is the CatIt tower?

Daisy said...

What a great idea! You can have fun and eat at the same time!

Lishy, you look MAHVELOUS in B & W!
What happens if you give the feeder thingy a good firm headbutt/running bodyslam? Will it tip and leak all the food out? Inquiring Cats want to know.

Sparkle said...

I like the black and white photos a lot! As for the contraption, I am not so sure about anything that makes it work to get the food... isn't working to get the food the human's job?

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

We agree that the B&W photos are rather fun. And that looks like a very interesting contraption! But you don't get fed all your food that way, do you????

We are happy you are all safe in your new home!!
Fui, you are not fat, you have a family sized heart and you need a bigger body to hold it :)

that is an AMAZING machine! I have never seen anything like it either.

Who makes it?
That is really fancy!

MoMo said...

That's a fancy toy! That phrase sounds oddly familiar. I am forever sniffing around the kitchen floor, even though SS religiously wash it daily.

Angel and Kirby said...

That is a cool food tower! You are very smart to figure it out!

Huffle Mawson said...

I hope my mum doesn't see this. I don't want to work for my food!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Parker said...

What an awesome idea - I'd love one of these!

Sam said...

I love this idea! I think I can name a couple of cats that would benefit from having to work for their food...teehee

Pablo said...

OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!! I WANT ONE OF THOSE!!!!!!!!!!

(Oh, and welcome to Melbourne.)

Charlemagne and Tamar said...

What a really cool feeder!!! Where can we get one like it?

Glad that you all made it through the move and we hope that you don't have any problems with the rainy weather.

That is one cool tower of kibble! We have something sort of like that but it is only one section, not a tower! Where did you find it?
