D.I.Y. Feline Snack Machine

A kitty adapted to living indoors tends to become relatively lazy and fat which presents a food management challenge for the caring owner. I have found that Buffy the Cat is content to eat less overall if food is provided in small amounts throughout the day. So I provide a morning meal, an evening meal, two others provided by a timer. One occurs around 3pm when I am not an home. Another occurs at 4am while I am sleeping. This routine is satisfactory for Buffy the Cat. The details for constructing a timer kibble dispenser are provided here (removed)
