Automatic pet food dish

I want to make a pet food dish that rations out pet food at specific intervals. Something similar to this http://www.petronic.com/sixday.htm it doesn't have to be a circle, I could probably figure out how to do it with a pulley system and motor if it was straight, but I need to find a timer to trigger the motor. Does anyone know where to get a timer like that, or what I should search for. I've never built anything before, so I don't know anything, or what to search for. Thanks for any help.

Homemade Pet Strollers

I would like to make a pet stroller for my in-laws. They have 2 Yorkies who can never "finish" their walks, but end up having to be carried. This is wearing on the humans, as they aren't young anymore. I've been laid off since April, so I can't afford the $99-$249 it costs in the stores. Has anyone made one of these? I haven't been able to draw up a plan that really worked. Hope someone out there can help.

Pet Travel Kennel Into Doghouse

Hello everyone!  Finally made an account after using this site for over 5yrs because I'm hoping to find some advice. I have a big, plastic, dog-sized travel kennel (airplane kind).  Since my pet isn't using it anymore, thought I'd convert it into an outside doghouse seeing as though it's practically complete already.  To prevent rain from getting inside, I need to cover up the side & back barred "windows".  My 1st impulse was to replace the metal bars with wood, but rain would just leak in through the top.  Any thoughts on attaching a makeshift roof?  I've added a picture of it to help (the metal door has been removed).

Frog operated music player

I have a pet tree frog, Slippy. He likes to croak along with certain types of music, like minimalism and hip hop. I think it would be great if he had a way to turn on some music by like, hopping on a switch. I think he could learn. I have some ipods and a tape player. I can get more if need be, but I can't blow too much on it.

How can I make a cat auto feeder that only goes off when a specific cat is in range?

My sister has a cat that has to eat special diet food. Problem is that she runs a shelter and has 6 other cats who would gobble up the food given the opertunity. Since feeding expensive diet kibble to all the others is not feesable and not healthy for the others, I thought maybe we could come up with an idea of an auto feeder that only goes off when the one cat comes near. Kinda like the pet doors that keep racoons and other animals out, and only let your pet come in with the special collar. And daily meals are not an option at this point with another finicky cat that goes on huger strikes in the shelter. Any ideas?

Has anyone made a rabbit-run inside their house?

I have a rabbit in a large cage in the garage. I would like to give it more room for exercise, but don't want to have it loose chewing everything up. I'm thinking of making a rabbit run to other parts of the garage or house. Like a long and very skinny cage with a larger cage at either end, or hubs with trails in-between.

Robot Baby Seal

This brings to mind the concept of the Uncanny Valley except, it's not almost human-like... it's not really almost seal-like either, I think, but I've never been in close contact with a baby seal so how would I really know?Apparently this is supposed to be "healing". Not sure what kind of injury it would help with.Anyway, check out the video. The squeaking at least surely could have been done better...

Hamster's heating pad

The winter is on it way. I'm having a hamster, a winter white, but the last winter his caught cold and it cost very much for him to cure him. I don't want my hamster to be sicked any more, so I made a heating pad for him. I used this instructable  https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-heated-clothing/ and I found it is very well. I use a two - meter 26 - gauge wire, and it only result in a 0.15 ohm resistance. With an 1.5 v voltage, It work well and i need a 10a fuse to protect this circuits:) But last week it overheated and my hamster was burned, quite bad. I'm wondering if there is a solution to this. Would you mind giving me a circuit in which: - there is a thermistor to sense the temperature. - If the temperature is to high (30 celcius degrees ), it gives a relay some voltage and the relay breaks the heater circuits. - And it component should be popular, cause I'm a kid and don't have many time go round n' round to find them. Me and my hamster will very appreciate your kindness. Thanks all.

Would this work and if so, would someone like to help me make it happen? Thanks

There's ducks in my Backyard

So a while back, a duck found the top of a shed a good place for nesting in my backyard. Me and my step dad talked about it and we're thinking of raising the ducklings once they hatch. We're building a pond and whatever else comes to mind that duckings would need. Has anything like this happened to any of you before? I fell dumb for asking , but is this a good idea to raise ducks from the wild as pets? (I've never heard of a story in the news where a duck has harmed a person before so...) Has anyone raised a duck before? What are your thoughts on this? haha, if we really do this, I could probably post an instructable on how to raise ducks if this goes well. Here's some pictures of the duck that's on the shed.

Light sensitive/remote pet door battery powered

Hi all i have scoured the site but cant seem to find a project that i need, and would therefore benefit from any help and advice on how to build an light sensitive automatic door opener for our chicken coop. it seems an obvious project to me,, hopefully one not too hard that i can do with your help. we have a barn thats too far away from the electricity, so it needs to be self powered by battery. i can look into trickle carging the battery by solar seperatley i am sure on the site. but, the wife is sick of having to go each night and shut the chucks in to keep them safe from the fox, and then open up every morning. we were wondering if we could use a standard light sensor you find on the cheap security lights at the DIY store, that would trigger some kind of motor or catch etc to slide or raise a door. then if possible, to do the opposite when the morning comes. if the LUX sensor is not possible, then maybe on a timer, or even posibly remote. i need help and advice on the whole thing, as i have no idea on what type of mote, (if i need a motor at all) i need, will it burn out if it has power all the time?, how to stop it? loads of questions i cant even think of support with your answer would be appreciated. thanks in advance

I am in need of assistance regarding electric motors.

I am planning on making a electric powered vertically sliding pet door.  I have all the mechanical and pulleys etc worked out but am ignorant regarding small electric motors. I am very competent regarding wiring and circuits/relays etc, only issue is the power for the unit.  I know they sell units like this but i want to build my own.  I need the motor to move slowly one way and stop when i cut power using a switch and when next powered to reverse until the switch cuts power so on and so on.  Any ideas as to where I can purchase a motor such as this?  Radioshack has zilch, so i assume I am going to need to go online.  Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. I have been planning this in my mind for quite a while, generally right around the time the dog door breaks in the dead of winter.  Thanks for any help! Joe
