Looking for a puzzle toy

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a puzzle toy for my cat. Mac is recently adopted, and since switching to canned food, has too much energy and is too smart for his own good. (Maybe I should switch him back to a cheaper food! )

Getting a companion cat is not really an option as he prefers to be an only cat (according to his foster), space and time issues, and he has had feline herpes, which makes him a carrier.

So, I'm looking for a puzzle toy that will keep him engaged while my partner and I are not home. It has to be safe for unsupervised use. I'm hoping to find something that you can stuff treats or catnip in as rewards. He has tried the cat dancer and panic mouse, and gotten bored with them in a short time.

Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance

I think this toy looks fun, but I haven't tried it.

Thanks for the suggestions. I ordered the Peek a Prize box after watching the video on the site; it does look interesting! It arrived this evening, so I'll post back with an update tomorrow.

I just ordered this one! Looks like fun. My cats have the large circular enclosed ball toy and they play with it for hours and hours.
