I haven't really printed and tested it yet! But it has to work well in theory ...
3 months ago from here I downloaded files on a cat feeder that has a small lever that the cat should press with a paw and drop some pellets of food. However, my cat is obviously very stupid :) and for three months now he cannot learn to press the feeder with his paw. Sometimes he presses his head and shoots 1-2 pellets :)) He will die of starvation while lying next to her, but he will not remember that he has to press her. 3 I have been showing him for months and teaching him to press her ... but ...
Another drawback is that on this feeder with the lever on the side, the pellets are clamped inside and sometimes they do not fall at all and I have to shake it!
That's why I designed this whole feeder myself at first. I called her the Feeding Cat for Silly Cats :)
Cats like to roll things around with a paw. That's why I designed it so that it rotates with the cat's paw while stirring the pellets inside so that they cannot be stuck permanently. I hope my stupid cat learns to spin it this time.
The feed drum is pulled up and the side cover is slammed off. It is filled with pellets, the lid is slammed back into place. The drum has two lateral grilles that should be assembled for the first time, and should be lightly pressed. Then they are no longer removed, they do not have to.
On the back foot, there are two openings with which you can clamp the feeder to a wider and heavier base so that it does not turn over and tear the cat apart.
So ... this is a feeder for stupid cats or puppies :)
