There are a few types of automatic cat feeders to suit the needs of every cat owner. Depending on your needs, you may opt to buy one or two types or even a combination auto cat feeder should you choose to. Do note that there are quite a number of automatic feeders that can be used for both cats and dogs. Below is a list of the most common types of automatic cat feeders available on the market.
You might think of the WOpet Automatic Pet Feeder with Ice Pack as a tightly packed pair of children’s shoe because of its unusual design. Try to imagine two oblong shaped canisters with a black base and 2 rounded black dials on one end of each of these canisters. Or better yet, try imagining the trash bin that you have in the office, the one that has a foot pedal to open the lid. Well, that’s actually how the mechanism of the WOpet works although it has a built-in timer and that the depth of the bin is just several inches high. This automatic feeder for cats is quite unique in that it doesn’t have any complex mechanisms.
Back in February 2013 I started teaching my Raspberry Pi 101 class. After the first class I think I had Pi on the brain, I was scheduled for a quick weekend trip out of town with my girlfriend, and she was due to leave her two cats behind. She said that she was going to leave a large bowl of cat food out, and with that I suggested that I build an automated cat feeder for them.The Aspen Le Bistro Portion-Control Automatic Pet Feeder can be used for dogs or cats. This programmable unit can be set to feed your pet up to three times a day. Portions can be adjusted from a quarter of a cup to two cups. The hopper is clear plastic so you can see when the food is getting low. It runs on three D sized batteries that can last up to a year or more. The feeding bowl is removable and dishwasher safe.

Whilst these can be useful in certain circumstances, we do not advocate leaving your cat alone for long periods of time. Remember that cats need to have litter boxes cleaned, clean water and some attention every now and again, as well as food. For periods of more than two days away from home, we would recommend alternative solutions, such as a cat sitter, or a neighbour to pop in and do ‘cat duty’ for your beloved pet.The integrated microchip makes this feeder ideal for pet owners with several cats at home. The technology is designed to detect the RFID collar tag and open automatically. This means that other pets can’t get to your cat’s food.

It comes with a sealed bowl that protects the food from flies and ensures that it stays fresh for long hours. This automatic cat feeder is incredibly easy to set up and programmable. It comes with various trays, and you can get one with two compartments for wet and dry food.
