not everyone can stay home all day long and take care of their cat. That’s why many people leave food in bowls. But if the cat eats all the food, then it will go hungry unless their owner is smart enough to buy an automatic cat feeder.
The idea is to fill the feeder with food and the device dumps the food out so the cat will always have access to its food. This can be perfect for short-term trips away from home or just times when you have to work (to pay for your cat) and can’t be home when your cat might want food.
