I have a cat at home. My maid is on leave for a week and am not available at home from 9am to 5pm(everyday). How do I manage the cats lunch? If I serve the lunch in the morning(before leaving home) it will eat up before afternoon.It gets even more difficult when am out for more then a day on business trip. What do I do?
If the cat's over six months old, it doesn't need lunch - in fact, once a day is quite adequate, but put food down in the morning and more when you get home. For if you're away for longer than a day, you'll need a timed cat feeder as mentioned elsewhere.
You need to contact and trust one of your neighbours to feed the cat unless you can't take a break and come from work to do it.
If you're willing to spend quite a bit, there're a few timed pet feeders I saw on Amazon. Here's the one I liked the most :)
Use a Pet Feeder and if you're creative : make it yourself with the help of a Raspberry Pi
