Your home-alone pet, however, deserves more than an overfilled food and water bowl to keep her needs met. Today, there are products which automate daily feeding, watering, litter control, play, and security. Using these devices, you can maintain your cat's comfortable routine, whether you're home or away.
||Cats are attractive pets for many reasons, not the least of which is their independent and self sufficient nature.
In addition to keeping important pet care on schedule, automation is convenient for you, and makes sure things get done well. In fact, you may find yourself using these helpful devices full time:
Automated feeders and waterers - Deliver fresh food and water, in the right amounts, at just the right time.
Dry food becomes even dryer the longer it sits in the bowl. Water becomes warm and flat, and collects dust. Automated feeders and waterers have many advantages over the traditional bowl.
Automated litter box - Does the dirty work for you.
If you want to deter your cat from thinking outside of the box, you need to keep her litter well groomed and odor-free.
Motion-sensitive and interactive toys - The mental and physical challenge your cat needs… on-demand!

Safety should never take a holiday. Using battery-operated alarms, you can keep your cat in her place and away from selected furnishings, and also keep strays and unwanted animals away.
