Automatic Cat Feeder?

Well, I'm going to Meh-hee-coh (ole!) for Spring Break in a couple weeks, and so I need a pet-sitter for my boy. Luckily, one of the vet techs at my veterinary office does pet sitting for a very reasonable price per day. However, she only visits once a day and Mak needs his medication twice a day, plus I don't want to make him go 24 hours without food! I figure the best/most economical option is to use her and purchase a timed feeder for whatever meal she won't be feeding him (he happily eats his medication as long as it's in a treat so I'm not worried about missing a pill when not supervised)

I've started looking online for timed feeders but every one I look at has horrible reviews on Amazon! Does anyone here a timed feeder that they are happy with and won't break the bank?

Re: Automatic Cat Feeder?

I used the Catmate 50 w/ Jonah so he could get 3 meals while I was at work when he was a kitten. Worked great!

I wouldn't expect them to work well FOREVER. I mean, it's a $40 item after all. And if the cat gets aggressive w/ it, I'm sure a big cat could break one. Worked well for me, though!

If you don't mind free feeding your cat, the cat food people sometimes package their food in a feeder. I just took the container off and use the dish now. Enjoy Spring break. I know you need it!

Sorry, don't have any experience with cat feeders of the non-human variety.
