It is a device which is filled with food in the upper container and dispenses a measured amount of food in the lower bowl at certain intervals of time. There are different types of Cat feeder available in the market. While certain Cat feeder will require you to set the feeder, other is interactive and would require the cat to press certain lever so that the food is released.
It would be interesting to note that cat is carnivorous animals like their illustrious cousins Tigers, Lion and Panther. They have in their genes the hunting instincts and would like to stalk their prey, play with it and finally kill for their food. However we do not want our pets to run all over the house stalking a mice or lizards. By providing the cat with food in plenty effortlessly, we are actually making the cat lazy and different from its natural instincts. Therefore they become lethargic and fat.
It must be understood that carnivorous animals only hunt and eat when they are hungry. They are wee bit different than humans and do not have lunch, breakfast or dinner. Therefore do not over feed the cat. They just don't need it. The cat feeder is an excellent means to regulate the quantity of food which the cat is having. It will give only that much food which is essential for the cat's subsistence and you will have a fit and agile pet instead of a fat and obese cat which spends most of the time sleeping on the Sofa.
