If you can’t always be at your cat’s side to feed them at meal time, consider investing in an automatic feeder. While it won’t replace your actual human interaction, it will give you some peace of mind that your kitty won’t go hungry when you’ve got places to be and people to see.
One of our top picks, the Petlibro programmable cat feeder(opens in a new tab) lets you schedule up to four meals per day and up to nine small portions per meal. With a 4L reservoir that keeps food fresh inside (even if your pet knocks it over), the Petlibro has a large enough capacity to keep most cats fed for up to 25 days before it needs to be refilled. That’s also enough to keep a small dog (under 40 pounds) fed for up to 10 days.
The easy-to-read LCD screen lets you customize time, meals, and portions based on your pet’s age, weight, and activity levels. As an added bonus, you can even record a 10-second clip of your voice that will play at feeding time. This can help reinforce the bond between you and your four-legged friend even when you’re away. There’s also a manual feeding function that can give your cat (or dog) extra rewards.
The Petlibro(opens in a new tab) — like most automatic feeders — is specifically designed to dispense dry food. If your cat prefers wet food or semi-moist food, this probably isn’t the best option for you.
