The Crown Majestic Diamond Series V2 is a combination dry feeder and . Its water bottle is detachable for easy refilling. The feeder holds up to 4.4 lbs. of pet food and dispenses it in 1/4, 1/2, or 3/4 portions. For larger and more active cats, the Crown Majestic Diamond Series V2 also has 1- and 2-cup settings. The feeder is highly programmable; for example, pet owners can feed their cats once every 12 hours or every 24 hours.

Currently there is some amazing technology available to help with pet care.

You may find a teaspoon is all you need for those additional 5 small meals from the automatic feeder. Just enough of a snack to keep the metabolism going and reduce that feeling of starvation during the dieting phase.Of course the limitation with the automatic feeders is that you can’t store meat or wet food in there. As a vet I am a big advocate of raw meat and high protein foods for cats. Most dry food is incredibly calorie dense and has a much higher carbohydrate composition than is ideal for cats. When selecting a dry food, find one that has as much meat protein as possible, definitely not corn, soy or other grains first on the list of ingredients.
