how about this? A pet food dispenser with a difference! by using a motion sensor when your pet approaches the feeder, the lid will automatically open. The advantage with this system is that your pet can eat when it likes!!!! It will stay fresh thanks to tight fitting lid and ice pack. surely a winner, plus it could be made very cheaply

I am damn fed up of my cat not eating his food and bloody flies laying eggs on his food!!

is that better!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;-)

       I am damn bloody confused as to how this thing is going to tell when your pet wants to eat or is just passing by.

       Won't the flies set off the motion sensor?

       Sounds like Sharper Image material.

       How long are you leaving your cat's food down?

       Won't this turn your pets into glutons being that they can eat as much as they like only because they have a lazy master?

Eggs on the food or eggs on the cat?
  

       You can have a special tag on the cat's collar that the food bowl system could use as cat authentication. Or have a switch that the cat herself must activate to open the bowl.
The cats & dogs I owned over the years always got the cheap dry food that doesn't go bad. But this idea is good for canned food.

       Canned food is very bad for your pets.

       get real !!eggs on cat food, not the cat. I just wanted to clarify that one. What kind of sick person do you think iI am? Ok by the way does anyone know of a gadget like this?

       Combine it with a dosage/dispenser function, so you can control how much the pet can eat at any given time.
