So I had this nice little setup for Dexter to be able to eat dry food during the day to where Evie and Emerson couldn't get to his dry food (Evie has very bad food insecurity and will gorge herself if left to free feed). Dexter has officially outgrown our little jerryrigged system. Does anyone have any idea on how to keep dry food only available to one cat? I have seen the automatic feeders that are activated by a microchip, but I've read a lot of reviews that say a very determined cat (read: Evie) can still get to the food inside. And at over $100 plus the cost of actually being microchipped, that's a very expensive gamble, especially since we have shifted down to one income. Today was the first day we took up Dexter's hard food and husband said he was miserable when he got home. Just crying and begging. Then he proceeded to eat 6oz of canned food in one sitting...poor baby was starving. Any ideas? Husband works too far away (40 minutes) to come home on a lunch break for an afternoon snack. I live away during the week for school. Thank you all!
