Using an automatic cat feeder to provide your favorite furry feline with an endless source of nourishment will benefit both you and your pet in many ways. One of the most beneficial aspects is of course, the convenience of not having to worry about feeding your cats during the day while you’re at work.
As a matter of fact, not only will you not have to worry about little fluffy while you’re on your lunch break, if the automatic pet feeder is full when you leave for the day, you can even stop off at the gym or at happy hour with your coworkers on the way home and not have to give it a second thought.
Speaking of freedom, depending on the style of automatic cat feeder you purchase, as well as the amount of cats in your household, it’s quite possible that you’ll even be able to leave for an entire weekend without worrying about feeding your cat. Now that’s freedom! Of course, you’ll have to also provide plenty of fresh water as well so be if you plan on leaving for days at a time, it might be wise to also invest in a high quality cat fountain as well.
Along with freedom to leave your little fur ball for a few days, an additional benefit of having an automatic cat feeder is the ability to store your cat’s food directly in the feeder which frees up room in your cupboards. It also helps you see at a quick glance just how much food is left so you’ll always know when it’s time to purchase another bag. Many cat feeders have large capacity food compartments that can hold quite an amount of food which is excellent for multi-cat households. If you do have more than one cat, check into circular cat feeder options so that there’s an opening on all sides of the feeder which will allow more than one cat to eat at the same time.
Lastly, an automatic cat feeder is interesting to your cat. He or she will enjoy eating from the feeder and will probably even figure out how to reach up with a paw and allow more to fall to the eating area. This interest also holds true for cat water fountains as well. Cats are by nature curious creatures so why not give them entertainment while also providing them with their daily nourishment?
An automatic cat feeder can be found in a vast array of designs. They’re also made from various materials such as ceramic, stainless steel and plastic. While it’s true that they’re convenient and save time and worry, it’s still also important to understand that they need to be kept clean and of course, full! Please be sure to read and follow manufacturer’s instructions so that you and your pet can get the most from your automatic cat feeder.
