4. Lentek 6-Day Automatic Pet Dish [amazon]
One of the down sides of having a pet is that it’s a whole lot harder to ditch town for a week without having a friendly neighbor that you know and trust. It’s a better option than just dumping extra food in a dish if you want to regulate how much they eat per day. The 6-day pet dish has an accurate timer and if there happens to be resistance on the feeder it will stop the lid rotation. That way if your pet happens to be finishing up it won’t catch their paw in the dish somehow. It can feed the animal in intervals of 6, 12 or 24 hours. Each compartment can hold about 2/3 cup of dry food, so it’s best for a smaller animal.
