This unique invention provides a solution that may be exactly what you’ve been looking for! It’s the Gatefeeder, a patented controlled feeding solution for cats. It was created by Philip Eu, a cat owner who faced the challenge of feeding his two cats each a special diet, while his busy schedule didn’t always permit supervised meals. One of Philip’s two cats was diagnosed with a medical condition and he needed a special diet and medication, but Philip couldn’t always get home twice a day at meal time to make sure that both cats ate their own separate food. Philip searched but couldn’t find a product that would do what he needed, so he designed the Gatefeeder.
The Gatefeeder is a compact unit that keeps the cat food inside behind a door. Your cat wears a small Smart ID RFID sensor on his or her collar. When the cat wearing the right Smart ID approaches the Gatefeeder, the door unlocks and only that cat can access the food. No ID, no access.
This is perfect for keeping other pets or children out of kitty’s food. The Gatefeeder can hold up to a weekend’s worth of dry food, or it can keep canned food cold with an ice pack for up to 10 hours. Food is stored in a removable, washable stainless steel bowl and there is a viewing window on top so you can easily check the food level. The Gatefeeder is recommended for cats weighing 5 to 20 lbs. It is available directly from gatefeeder.com for $249 US.
