Our little colony of feral cats have quickly taken to eating from the feeder in the new cat house. They aren’t living there yet, as expected, but I’m hopeful that once the weather gets cooler, and I plug in the heating pads, they’ll enjoy the warmth.
Here is the first cat to eat in the new feeder, the night of installation:
A couple of cats exploring inside the shelter:
Four at once:
I was moving the old feeder towards the new location, with a breadcrumb trail of wet food dishes guiding the way, but since they very quickly found and explored the new house, I decided to accelerate the move.
Yesterday, I transferred the food dispenser into the new feeder, and discontinued the old one.
Here you can see the dispenser on the drawer:
With the drawer pushed into place, the dispenser is above the tube that leads to the food dish below. You can see storage of spare food, too, and the water dispenser below:
Here’s a view of the dispenser through the window. That’ll be handy to quickly see the level and such:
Yesterday evening, the cats had no problem eating from the new location:
The masked bandits found the feeder… but there was probably no (or very little) food left by then. The dispenser is safely out of reach:
Breakfast is dispensed at 06:00:
I do enjoy watching the cats, and hope they like their new restaurant, the Cat House Mercantile, and in due course move in to the Cat House Saloon.
