Find Out How to Choose Among the Best Automatic Cat Feeders?

Posted by Only Vet Meds

Automatic cat feeders offer more benefits than you can think of:

  • Setting a fixed feeding routine
  • Scheduling multiple meals in the right portions
  • Promote healthy weight management
  • Optimal consumption to prevent health issues and cat medications
  • Feeding the cat even when you are away
  • Not to forget, the great convenience for cat owners

When you decide to buy an automatic cat feeder, there are many options you would come across. A good one would have the features like:

  • Digital timer to customize the feeding times
  • Wi-Fi functions to control the feeder using apps
  • Voice recording to invite the cat whenever the food is dispensed
  • Ability to customize the food portions
  • Design which is cat-proof (prevents violations by your little pet)
  • Support for wet cat foods (with arrangements to avoid food spoilage)

You must decide whether you need a battery-operated feeder (great for cord-free usage) or corded feeder (no worries about weak batteries as you are away for days). Gravity feeders are also a good option as they demand low maintenance.
