  1. Should I buy a traditional feeder?
    Reply

    Traditional feeders work well if you don’t plan to use for a long period of time and not all that frequently. If you are going to be going away for the weekend, a traditional feeder can easily solve your problems when it comes to keeping your cat well-fed or if you are bedridden for a few days due to illness – it can definitely make your life easier. They are also much cheaper compared to other options as you can pick one up for around $10.

  2. What are the disadvantages of traditional feeders?
    Reply

    The biggest disadvantage is that unless your cat eats very little at a time, you might have to worry about your cat eating too much and getting themselves sick. With a traditional feeder you can’t provide any sort of portion control or schedule eating times to ensure that your cats are rationing their food when you are gone for a while. Additionally, sometimes the food in the feeders gets stuck in the container and won’t pour in the dish like it’s supposed to.

    Reply

    As low maintenance as they are, making sure your cats are getting enough food and water can be challenging as you go to work during the day, pick up the kids from school, do chores and finish up everything else on your plate. Often, they’ll let you know how hungry they are at 2 o’clock in the morning, waking you up from a good night’s sleep. But with the best cat feeders on the market, your cat will never go hungry again! By ditching the bowl and picking up a feeder, your cat can choose when they want to eat and how much they eat, so you only need to fill their feeder every now and then.
