In this post I’m going to teach you how to choose the best automatic cat feeder in this 2018, because like me with my hard life of guards in the Hospital, on more than one occasion I do not leave enough food for my kitten, so If you do not want that to happen and you want to improve the relationship with your pets, I am sure that with one of the automatic feeders that I will analyze next, you will solve this mess very much.
What is the importance of having an intelligent feeder? good is not just a gadget for our friends, we know very well that cats like to eat in small portions, that makes them stay with a very active metabolism, ideal to avoid overweight, but if you think it spends a lot of time in the interperience the flavor will be very bad and leaving aside the taste the possible contamination that could contract, affecting our cats, for it today I leave the whole afternoon to explain in detail the best 5 automatic cat feeders.
What do I pay attention to when buying an automatic feeder for my cat?
Because I want to start this post like this, because I believe that one must be careful when buying a product, remember that we will invest part of our money and that we should always value brands, know their technical support, if possible, therefore We will be addressing this so that you feel safe in your next purchase.
Not that I am a fussy but really in the online market there are many imitators of large companies, so before I buy a feeder I look at the brand, among them which I highlight are 5, for their technical support, for its trajectory and because its products have the best user ratings, these are:
We will address the pros and cons of each of these brands later, but if you are already seeing a product of them, you are already making your best choice, because we know that they are recognized brands in the field of pets.
WOPET, is one of the pioneers in the pet products market, its automatic feeder is also a bestseller in the Amazon America.
Petwant, is undoubtedly the leading brand in the development of products for our cats and dogs, they have a cutting-edge research system and official website to see their best products.
Jempet, this company has been climbing little by little, taking certain design lines from the first two, but its products are more intuitive and facilitate communication through mobile apps.
Iseebiz, is for me the brand with which one could very well start the first purchase if we do not want to spend a lot and have a first-class gadget in our house.
HoneyGuaridan, this brand takes one step further than the others, has at your disposal automatic drinking supplements that are luxurious, we will talk about them in a future guide, but excellent user ratings and excellent value for money.
The capacity of your tank
Why is it important to see the capacity of the tank? because with it you really know if you will do well with the WOPET feeder or the HoneyGuaridan, because both have a rather small container compared to those of Petwant and Yatek.
The containers allow you to safely store the feed (Concentrates or Food) , preventing the ants, bacteria and even the same climate from damaging the texture and flavor of them.
Furthermore, one advantage of evaluating the food dispenser is that it will allow better rationing of meals, you will not want a plump cat that has health problems later, we must give them what their race and age need. If you want to know more about the rations in the link below you can assess according to the health of your cat and his age the type of feed you need and the rations that are recommended by veterinary experts.
Feed for cats Ultima, Analysis
Because we are committed to give you the tools so that you can buy properly we will show you the comparison in the dispensers, present in the models of the brands that we have mentioned before.
Integrated technology – Connectivity
One of the reasons why buy an automatic cat feeder? it is without a doubt the search of practical ways to automate our life, and to offer our cats the food when they need it, for it the feeders can integrate infrared systems like WOPET, which indicate when the I think, or as in the case of the Petwant that allows connectivity to social networks and you can take photos or video through a camera in the dispenser, incredible no? you’ll see it working soon.
But in addition to connectivity it is important to evaluate that our feeders have the capacity to work with or without electric current, some integrate adapters for receptacle for batteries.
The latter is invaluable, especially if there is a blackout and your cat is alone at home, with this duality of operation you ensure that your cat receives food if yes.

Way in which food is rationed
Something very important when buying a smart feeder, is knowing how to serve the feed or cat food to our furry friends, because it is not the same to serve a jelly or a pack of wet food that I think.
For this, some of the designs that we have been describing use a tray system easy to assemble and clean, except for the automatic feeders WOPET , which comes in its same integrated design tray system, but not all it is bad in these two, they are the only ones that allow detecting by means of an infrared the possible pieces of feed that have become stuck or that can get stuck.
The food rations, should be calculated based on the age of your cat and whether or not it presents a health condition, but if your cat is very healthy I invite you to read our guide:
In the case of the Jempet and the Yatek Petwant, the functionality of the app, gives you the option of knowing how the dispenser goes, that is, before it is empty you will receive a notification likewise you can know how many times it comes to eat your cat and The rations that you have been eating, this is great if you have been told by the vet that rations better meals.
