LickiMat Classic Soother 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

  • It has a challenging surface and is best suited for soft paste and liquid foods and treats, it gives the tongue a great workout
  • 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 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 the 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

Lickimat Range

  • The mats are available in a variety of textures, each working differently with different types of foods and treats
  • Try them all to discover which surfaces work best for your pet or to provide your pet with a variety of activities

Construction

  • Made from BPA free, non-toxic food grade TPR (thermoplastic rubber) – contains no silicone
  • Flexible and easy to clean (soak and hand wash in warm, soapy water)
  • Freezer safe

Dimensions

  • 20cm x 20cm x 0.7cm thick

Note

  • If this mat is used correctly, it is strong and long-lasting
  • It is not a chew toy – inspect for wear and take away from your pet if any pieces become loose or detached

Cleaning Instructions

  • Rinse and wash the mat once your cat has finished licking up all their food/treats – do not leave the mat with old/dried food and treats attached to the surface
  • Soak and hand wash in warm, soapy water

Introducing Your Cat To LickiMat

Getting Started

  • Sometimes cats can be very fussy about changes to their feeding arrangements, therefore LickiMat products need to be introduced carefully 
  • You should transition by placing the LickiMat close to (but not touching) the regular feeding bowl with plenty of room around the LickiMat for your cat to comfortably approach it from any angle
  • Some cats need more time to approach a new feeding bowl

Prepare the LickiMat with yummy food/treats your cat loves

  • You should put a small amount of their favourite treat, food or paste in the centre of the LickiMat
  • You can also try a wide array of dry, wet, raw and paste cat food or treats
  • If your cat is still being reluctant after a few days, you should put the meal on the LickiMat and remove the old feeding bowl
  • You will be able to work out the best combinations and preparations for your cat over time

Food Safety

  • You can use a large array of healthy foods on a LickiMat
  • Make sure that any human foods you use are safe and if you have any doubts please check with your vet, vet nurse or other professionals
  • You should always avoid foods with Xylitol as they are harmful to pets

Cleaning Instructions

  • It is important to care for your LickiMat to ensure it lasts a long time for your pet to enjoy
  • LickiMat is made from TPR (Thermoplastic Elastomer) which is more tear-resistant than other materials
  • TPR is also food safe and recyclable

Dishwasher

  • It is not ideal to place LickiMat in the dishwasher unless you can lay it perfectly flat on the rack because it may bend
  • The LickiMat TUFF range and SLOMO can be placed in the dishwasher because they have a rigid base and will not bend in the dishwasher

Handwash

  • It is recommended to hand wash only
  • You will find most of the food will get licked up anyway
  • To make cleaning easier, lay the mat in the sink and run warm water over it with a few drops of dishwashing liquid
  • Leave it to soak for about 15 minutes
  • After cleaning, rinse well, shake off and lie flat face up to dry
