Catzenpup Auto Feed

Micah dreaming of wet food auto feeding.

Marcus: You know how we love to eat! We came across a neat way anyone with a single cat or dog could feed their pet.

Buddy: We keep reading these blog and Facebook posts saying Kitty wakes me up to feed him at 5 AM.  Really?  We dogs wouldn't mind being fed at that hour either.

Rusty:  We don't understand what the problem is with such an hour.  It seems more than reasonable to us.

Percy:  It's a new type of feeder called catzenpup.  The human just sets the feeding timer and Kitty or Fido is fed at the specified time - unless someone forgets to plug it in (we assume it's electric) or sets the timer for PM instead of AM, as Jan sometimes does her alarm clock.

Cameron:  Here, you can see it in action in this video.   This is Amber the cat being auto fed.

Sam:  Since some of our readers are strictly cat or dog lovers, we are also including a video of Gia the Pomeranian being auto fed.

Cyndi: It's not available yet, but it is coming.  Catzenpup has a kickstarter campaign launching today at 1 PM EST. 

Micah: Sadly, those feeding stations will be coming to anywhere but this Funny Farm.  Jan says it gives her nightmares to even think of a single container of food being opened around here because we would all rush to claim it and there wouldn't only be chaos, there would be fights. 

Merci:  I don't understand why she would think that.  Who does she think we are - animals? 

Note:  We don't want you to get the wrong idea, so perhaps we should add that this is not an ad or a review, just a discussion of something we came across on Twitter.

  1. Sadly, that wouldnt werk here. Iza would just eat, throw up, eat, throw up, until it was all gone. She has a bit of a problem with unlimited foods... ~ Ayla and Marley

  3. Bowsers, that sure is a strange contraption. Wonder what happens when the electricity goes out? Think I rather have Dad pour my food for me.

  8. BOLBOLBOL....Mama can't even fathom the chaos, fighting and starvation that would happen if we just had one feeder here! We are sure it would be great for a one pet family :-)

  9. Jan makes a good point. If there are lots of cats or dogs who want to eat there may be a stampede. We just had that terrible front move through and we thought of your Miss Jan, we sure hope all is well up your way.

  10. Yeah, that wouldn't work here - all three of us would be scrambling for that one can of food!

  12. Moosey has a timed feeder, though it's sort of a holdover from when Angel Sammy was still alive. They each had one, and we would synchronize them so they'd go off almost simultaneously. We had them on different sides of the bed, ad somehow they always knew which feeder was their own. :)

  15. Great idea, but automatic doesn't stop the girl from attacking the boy's food. Mom or Dad still has to monitor the eating if not the feeeding.

  16. Now if it would just give the kitty some attention

  18. No way that would work here either, even though there are only three of us. Saku would hog it!

    Oh yes I would, MOL

  20. There are always those caveats to good ideas, Hmmm.
    Pipo needs one to limit his access to noms, but Minko needs to put on some layers...dog-guy is a vacuum!!
    Nope wouldn't work here...

  21. Looks like an interesting product! Wonder if it would work for my ratties!!

  22. Hiya Anipals! We see that most of you have multiple pets! It just seems to end up that way no matter how it starts out! We hear you!
    While future versions of the Catzenpup may certainly service multiple pets, the current version is intended for single pet use with 3 oz plastic containers with foil topped seals.

    There are several times in the course of pet parenting where isolating one of your fur babies from their sisfurs and brofurs is a necessity. A happy occasion might be for a nursing mother cat or dog who may be enjoying quiet time from the rest of her siblings while the little ones are young and nursing. Or for when you have a pet who may be on a temporary dietary restriction like veterinarian assisted weight loss, for instance. Or there may be medication that the pet is on that requires the pet to be fed on a schedule separate from the other pets in the house. These are just a few of the reasons where a Catzenpup could come in handy in a multi-pet family. We are sure there are many others! We invite you to keep asking questions and voicing your concerns. We are getting them all answered and addressed on our FAQ on the Kickstarter page. We can't do it without your help! xo
