Introduction: Slow Cat Feeder
This project is if your cat is greedy enough!
For my cat i had success from the first try!
Some cheap shelf mounts, a piece of mdf wood, standard 75mm pvc pipe and some bolts and screws are needed to complete the project as you can see from images.
With this feeder i managed to slow down the speed of eating to 30 minutes.
Step 1: Prepare the Pipe
You can found everywhere an 75mm diameter pvc pipe. It used to guide waters.
I made some holes 10mm for the food and 7mm to attach some bolts.
Step 2: Attach the Bolts
These bolts helps the cat to spin the feeder.
They are also help for a weight step while spinning.
They give more weight to the feeder.
Step 3: Attach the Caps
This is why i love my 3d printer. if you have one you can download and print the caps.
If not, be creative and make your own caps.
I design the spining holes on 6.5mm diameter.
Step 4: Prepare the Spinning Table
a piece of mdf wood is just enough to mount the shelf holders.
I have cut the rest of the holders.
2 x M4 bolts are used for spinning the pipe.
Step 5: Add Food and Feed Your Cat!
Cats are really intelligent animals.
My cat was able to spin the pipe from first try!
I can add food for whole week without worrying about that my cat ate all its food from date one or tow.
This is a daily dose on the photo.
