Does anyone know of or has anyone used a dry food dispenser that
drops one or two morsels at preset intervals?

It's no big deal, just wondering if anyone is familiar with that.

Thank you.

They make a big "tweety bird" kind...it's really just a pez dispenser

but you'd have to teach the cats how to pull the head back
and eat out of tweety birds mouth

here is link to it..

Personally, I'd be worried about the failure of such a device if I
wasn't there to look after it.

I'd have more confidence in a gravity feed system.

yes, the cats would be over there kicking on it, like people do to
vending machines

There is no reason for such a device to be hazardous to anything.

Some folks use such a device to provide food to a feline while they are
away for a period of time... if the device malfunctions the kitty goes
hungry. Cranky kitty may attack owner when they return home. :-D

It has nothing to do with shirking responsibility. It has to do with
proper feeding. Sometimes my cat eats too much at one sitting.
Sometimes it eats too fast. Ideally I think that providing a tiny
amount of food at frequent intervals would be the best way to feed.
I'm assuming a high quality dry food.

Apparently free-feeding isn't the best for a cat. I don't remember the
details, perhaps Phil can elaborate once again on this one.

John let me ask a couple questions

One how many cats are you planning to feed with this device?
Two are any of the cats over weight or have problems with free eating?
Three if you have mulitple cats are any of the food dominant such as pushing
your other cats away?


depending on your answers

i use several of these around the house where each of my furballs have
establish there areas easy to use a little expensive
http://tinyurl.com/afuhf

I use these when I know I won't be home all day. I like these no worries
about a plug catching fire it works off a AA battery

these are set up through out the house both a water feeder and a free feeder
none of my cats have a problem with free feeding or are over weight
http://tinyurl.com/bvnbb


if you have a dominant food cat there are at certain petstores a radio
feeder that open when the cat wearing the certain collars comes near it
closes when it walks away.

It isn't. Do some research.

I don't need to research something that is easy for me to understand
and already substantiated by one of the kind replies.
