While surfing the web, I saw that someone was selling a device that automatically supervised feedings for multiple cats. It was basically a locked box with the food inside and only the cat with the key could get in. Anyone had a chance to use that yet?

We have 5 that eat in the front room. 4 come to sit by my feet as I'm preparing their meals. I say 'Smokie/Ruffy' and put down their plates. The 'boys' eat about 2 feet apart. Then I say 'Bub/ Little Man' and they get their food in another corner, a foot apart.

Then I bring Bella hers. She's Elderwise and gets fed on sheet on the couch. I sit with her so the little guy doesn't try and heist her food.

I then bring Natalie in her food.

They are fed half a can of fancy feast at a setting. They are fed about these times:

1/2 can FF 4:00am (when husband gets up)

1/2 can FF 6:30am when I get up

1/2 can FF at 5:30-6:30 when I get home

1/2 can FF half hour before bed.

The only one I have to watch is Bella. the little guy sometimes makes a beeline for her food.

It's werid too...he prefers to eat off his brothers plates with them. Not sure why.

That is impressive that you can keep such order - we can't. But what do you do when you have to be somewhere else during their normal feeding times?

We only have 4 here but even that can be a challenge. However I use the separation method. The senior cat eats upstairs with the dogs (that was a whole different issue to deal with but it has worked out). The other 3 eat downstairs. I have them set up in separate areas in the downstairs area. Initially I had to stay down there and observe and intervene if necessary but no longer. We now have peaceful meal times around here wave
