AiKiou Interactive Pet Feeder Giveaway
The U.S. has an epidemic of overweight and bored pets, but there’s AiKiou to the rescue. The Canadian-based company AiKiou (pronounced as I.Q.) has a line of inter-active feeder and puzzle toys designed to make pets work for their meal as they would in nature. They are ideal for pets who eat too quickly and bored pets needing stimulation. As an ex-pat Canadian, I was delighted to connect with Alex Tremblay, the company’s co-founder and fellow Montrealer who sent me a big box of their products. It quickly became clear all the products can be used for both cats or dogs and even their popular squeaky toys for dogs could be sprinkled with catnip for furry, feline fun. Even a blind cat like Merlin was intrigued. After all, cats rely largely on their sense of smell.
The star attraction though is their newly improved award-winning Stimulo Cat Interactive Feeder which won “Best in Show” at Global Pet Expo in 2012. The sturdy and easy to clean feeder and interactive toy consists of a series of hollow tubes that can be inserted into holes in the base in any configuration. Dry cat food is sprinkled into the tubes and cats use their paws to hunt and fish the morsels out. For those who don’t want to use it as a feeder, can sprinkle a few treats or stuff little catnip balls or mice. Our Odin thought the tubes make good hockey pucks!
I love pet companies that give back and AiKiou does big time. They’ve donated over 15,000 feeders to shelters and for every 50 new Facebook likes, they donate one to a shelter. So please go like their AiKiou Facebook page! where they also hold contests. You already follow us on Facebook right? If not, head over to Facebook.com/Cat Wisdom101 and like us. We post lots of fun stuff.
For our giveaway, I decided to offer our winners a chance to give back to shelters too. Our giveaway will have two winners who will win a Stimulo Cat feeder and a Paw Plunger. They will receive both but we hope they keep one and donate the other to a shelter. Sound good?

My cats would enjoy this. One of them loves to eat with his paws – he uses them as forks/spoons, so he’d be especially intrigued with this feeder.
Looks like a great way to slow down my greedy eaters.
My sweet orange tabby Abigail would benefit from this! She eats too fast and then upchucks! I shared this on Facebook also!
Love this! Entertains and slows down eating. Excellent.

With eleven hungry mouths to feed and as many interests to peak, I sure would love to have one of those feeders to keep my guys busy for a bit! LOL ^..^
With eleven hungry moths to feed and as many interests to peak, I sure would love one of those auto feeders to keep my guys busy for a while!

We would love to try one of these. If we win the second feeder would go to Paws & More Shelter in Washington, IA This is the rescue group that took good care of Ellie Mae O’Cat until she could rescue me. 🙂
I have never seen this before! Such a great idea!
I can’t believe how fantastic and fun this feeder would be for my 2 cats. It’s a game and also a nutritional blast 🙂
These look really cool! I have the balls and stuff that you put food in, but these look like they would be more challenging and slow down eating. I have one dog that inhales her food!
This looks so fun!
OOOOOH! Those sure are cool, and we know some kitties who they could benefit. 🙂
Sometimes, Cats Herd You
Oh, we’ve been trying to remember the name of this for a week. What good timing! We’ve been trying to think of a way to slow down Cousin Earl’s eating, and we remembered reading great things about this after last year’s Global Pet Expo.
Skeeter and Izzy
Hooray for Aikiou for giving to shelters!!! Stimulo Cat Interactive Feeder sounds like a futureistic gadget fur sure. Izzy loves to “hunt” for her food, we have a treat egg that she adores. We would most definitely donate one!
Concats to the winner of the other contest!!!!
We LUV AIKIOU!!!!
Luvs Skeeter and Izzy and the Feral Gang >^..^<
What a great idea. My cats would love it.
I think Austin would not bother. He would give me “The Look” and go outside and kill something!! But I would have lots of fun with it!! lol
With 6 cats 2 overweight and 1 diabetic this would be a fabulous product. My cats are basically lazy only indoor cats i think they are often bored
what a great giveaway for a fun product!
Looks like fun, I would like to try it.
Hmmmmmm,I think that is interesting!
Pinned and shared on Facebook.
That is so cool! I think the kitties would really like this. 🙂
The cats at Garth's Place
AiKiou to the rescue!!! The three of us would go nuts for an inter-active feeder…not that any of us eat too quickly, ahem… Gretchen. We’re sure our furry friends at SpokAnimal would love one too!
Amanda Heck & Cat Rocco
Rocco weighs in at 17 pounds; the AiKiou Interactive Pet Feeder and Paw Plunger will help promote exercise for Rocco and shed a few pounds in the process, too!
