Homemade Dog-Proof Cat Feeder!

Malu has had an obsession with Bogart's food. No matter how many times we "reprimanded" her, she couldn't resist it. So... we saw this really cool cat feeder on Orvis.com, but we weren't willing to pay as much as it cost, so we built it ourselves.

Here is a picture of the one on Orvis...



Here is the one we built...



We worked together to construct this feeder from plain wood. Then we stained it and used polyurethane to seal it to match our other furniture. We are pretty proud of it and Bogart seems to like it just fine...plus he is able to eat in PEACE!

Bark! My mommy thinks it is an "Awsome, Beautiful Kitty feeder!! Looks better than the one in the ad!" But I dont get it, how does the dog get to the food? Mommy wants to know if they make those for kitty boxes too. That would be even harder for us to get our "treats" from. No fun! BARK- Sasha the Princess

I agree the Orvis feeder is priced too high! Do you have any plans/instructions for the feeder you constructed?? email to angie.barreto@gmail.com Thanks.

This is perfect!! I have a dachshund (Eddie)that is overweight from eating cat food and a cat (Pete)that is a emotional eater. Those two make it hard for my other cats to get the food they need. This feeder would keep both of them out and eating only the specialty food they need to lose the weight. Would you be willing to share the construction plans? Please let me know at jdattore@austin.rr.com. Thanks!!
