@SiriusBlack1 We have used several automatic cat feeders during housesits, but sadly can not remember the exact ones and as the owner had already set them up I can not answer your exact questions about them.
But this article has several and they mention being able to program your own time, have larger servings of food etc. Have a look as each one is reviewed in detail.
There are many cat feeders available in the market with varying features and price ranges. Based on your requirements, here are a few recommendations:
PetSafe Smart Feed Automatic Cat Feeder: This feeder allows you to set up to 12 daily meal times with a portion size ranging from 1/8 cup to 4 cups. You can also control the feeder using a mobile app, which allows you to schedule, monitor, and control your cat’s feeding remotely.
SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder: This feeder uses your cat’s microchip to ensure that only your cat can access the food. It can also be programmed to dispense up to 12 meals a day and is suitable for wet or dry food.
Cat Mate C500 Automatic Pet Feeder: This feeder has five compartments that can hold up to 11.5 ounces of dry or wet food. You can program up to five feeding times, and the feeder also has a manual feed button for on-demand feeding.
WOPET Automatic Pet Feeder: This feeder can dispense up to four meals a day, with a portion size ranging from 2 teaspoons to 4.5 cups. It also has a built-in voice recorder that allows you to record a message for your pet to hear when it’s time to eat.
These are just a few options, but there are many more available on the market. Be sure to read reviews and compare features to find the feeder that best suits your needs and your cat’s feeding schedule.
