    I read the article about ways to detoxify your cat but it doesn’t go about saying how and is there a way to introduce all of them or how would you ever choose?

    I took a liter size water bottle, removed label, cut treat size holes with exacto knife and filled with dry food and treats. My Russian Blue, Gage, pushes it, paws it and rolls it around all day to get treats, he loves this toy!
