Catzenpup Automatic Wet Food Feeder Kickstarter Campaign
We all know that I am not a fan of dry food for cats. I have been asked to review a number of automatic pet feeders, but they all are tailored towards dry food. I can’t support them with a review, as a result (although I do acknowledge that some feral cat populations and some shelter cats have to eat dry food for cost purposes – overall, I am not for promoting those products for every day cat parents). I came across the Catzenpup Automatic wet food feeder a few weeks ago and was so excited that someone has created a wet food feeder! While it doesn’t open the tin cans, it does open the ones that are foil sealed (see video to see what I mean) – and see the image of the sort of wet foods it opens below.
It’s the first and only automatic fresh wet food feeder that can open your cat’s wet food for them when you can’t be there, and it is currently available on Kickstarter. While nothing can replace the bond that develops through the feeding of your pet, there will definitely be times when you are stuck at work, or have to run out and simply can’t be there to feed them, and this feeder solves that problem. Secretly, my hope is that if this project gets funded, they will then have the means to create another version of the feeder that will open tin cans. Also, my mom has been known to buy Fancy Feast appetizers for Caymus and Murphy and I can’t tell you how many times I have spilled the juice from those things all over my top because it splashed out when I was opening them. I think if my mom had one of these, I would use it just to open the food on a regular basis. I hate opening up those foil sealed cat food containers.
Catzenpup is especially great for busy pet parents who may unexpectedly need a helping hand in feeding one of his or her pets – there could be times when your cat is on a medication that makes a certain amount of food consumption on a timed basis important.
With Catzenpup a kitty can have a fresh wet food meal at any time – Fancy Feast Appetizers, Wellness, Whiskas, MeowMix, Authority, Grreat Choice that they are more than happy to eat at any time of the day or night.
Please know, the wet foods listed aren’t ones that I feed Charlie and Trigg – if you are wondering about those, please visit our best canned cat foods page. I know that not everyone has a budget to buy the best canned cat food and also picky eaters might require others. And Dr. Lisa Pierson of catinfo.org has long said that the crappiest wet food on the market is better for your kitty than the most expensive dry food.
If you pledge to help Catzenpup and get one of their automatic pet feeders, please do write and tell me about it!
