This cat food dispenser has a gravity food system and also a dishwasher safe removable stainless steel bowl. This unit is a good solution if you want to forget about pouring food every day into your cat’s bowl. This feeder is recommendable to be used under these conditions:

These feeder and waterer are very sturdy units and this is a good advantage because they offer good stability. The Bergan Petite feeder works through gravity, which means it does not work with timers so you cannot set a feeding schedule for your pet. This feeder+waterer combo is ideal for:
- Feeding and supplying water to two cats.
- To be used indoors, not exposing the feeder and waterer to external elements.
- For cats that don’t have a feeding schedule to follow.
- If you don’t have your cat on a diet, you just want to eliminate the task of pouring food every day to a feeder. FULL REVIEW

Even though this ball toy food dispenser is not an automatic solution, I recommend it with no reserves for cats that eat any size of food (you can adjust the holes on it). It is a very good toy to re-educate your cat if your pet shows bad eating behavior, for example, eating too fast and stealing your other pet’s food. It is also perfect to keep your indoor cat active. This toy feeder is especially for cats that:
- Are overweight and need to exercise
- Have anxiety
- Show bad eating behaviors
- Eat too fast
- Steal other pet’s food. FULL REVIEW
