Cats revert to healthy weight thanks to Microchip Pet Feeder
Could you give us some background information about Jess and Skylar?
Jess and Skylar are sisters who were brought to the centre with their mum Crystal. Unfortunately, their owner was too unwell to care for them. When they first arrived at the centre, Jess was very confident and would come straight up to you. Skylar on the other hand was shy and spent most of the day in her hidey bed.
We weigh the cats weekly and noticed that Jess was gaining weight, but Skylar was losing weight. We tried to supervise their mealtimes like we often have to with pairs of cats to make sure they both get their equal share, but Skylar was so shy that she would not eat if we were around. That’s where the Microchip Pet Feeder came in.
How easy was it to set up the product?
The Microchip Pet Feeder was incredibly easy to set up and the user manual was clear and extremely helpful. It even has a specific section on introducing a cautious pet to the feeder which I was pleasantly surprised by.
Has Jess lost any weight since Skylar started using the feeder?
Since using the product Jess has lost weight. She needed to because she was getting quite rotund eating both of their meals! And Skylar has gained back the weight she lost – yay!
Have either of the cats changed their feeding habits since you introduced the feeder?
Since using the Microchip Pet Feeder, Skylar has gained confidence and is happy to come out of her bed for mealtimes. Of course, we never put the feeder too far away from her bed so that she always feels safe, but she seems a lot happier now.
Would you recommend the Microchip Pet Feeder to cat owners?
I would 100% recommend the product to other cat owners and Jess and Skylar’s new family have said that they will be buying one in anticipation of their arrival in their new home. We will be using the Microchip Pet Feeder for future pairs of cats with the same issue and will recommend them to owners with multi-pet households.
