    Default Can anyone recommend a timed/automotic feeder for cats

    So, I would like to try using an automatic/timed feeder for my cat's feedings--definitely in the morning and possibly in the evening as well. He wakes us up way too early. We were home a lot this summer and able to move his feeding time down to a later time, which has helped somewhat but won't be able to do this in the Fall. Two models had been recommended on a previous thread in the lounge but one was really expensive ($499) and the other would probably work, but I am trying to see if there is a model that can use a stainless steel or ceramic bowl--I had a cat who had a bad reaction to plastic bowls and I don't know if it would bother this cat, but would rather not use plastic bowls in any case. I am thinking of getting the model below, but am also thinking about getting a cheaper model to try it out, and then upgrading if necessary

    We bought this to head off the cat demanding food at 4 in the morning. It's worked well for us; it is plastic though:

    I have a PetNet that works great! Not good for two cats if one is shy about taking a turn, though.

    Thanks. Believe it or not, I still have a windows phone so PetNet wouldn't work for us. I tried the Petsafe model and it did not reliably give the portions I set it for. We only have one cat, so don't have the sharing problem. Any other suggestions?
