In this instructable i am going to show you how to make a incredibly simple cat treat dispenser. It will take about all of 5 minutes to make and your cat will love it (or at least I know mines does)

Step 1: What You'll Need

3 things

A small pringles tube

a craft knife

a pen for marking

Step 2: Mark It Out

mark out semicircles around your tube, the size and amount of them is entirely up to you depending on how difficult you want to make it for your cat. just be sure they are big enough for the treats to actually come out (or thats just mean)

I opted for a 2 holes the one hole type pattern all the way around the tube.

I also did them in all the same direction, if you wanted you could alternate directions.

Step 3: Cutting

Using your craft knife cut the semicircle tabs remembering to not cut the entire shape out (or any fingers off)

Step 4: Folding

Push your semicircular tabs into the tube

Step 5: The Most Important Part..

Put in the treats. put on the lid and let your cat at it.

as you can see from the video below Nyx (my cat) loves it.
