RFID-equipped feeder keeps unauthorized pets out

Do you have a greedy fat cat who likes to steal the food from all your other pets' bowls? This feeder could be the answer, with a locked door that only opens when the right cat steps up for some chow.

Using the same RFID technology as those electronic pet doors, the Gatefeeder cat feeding system has a flap door that only opens when the cat wearing the right RFID tag collar approaches the feeder. This means a cat who often gets bullied out of their food or is on a special diet will always get their meal.

If you have a lot of fussy cats, you could even get a separate Gatefeeder for each one. At $249 a pop that could get to be kind of expensive, although high cost doesn't seem to deter a lot of pet owners.

Check out the video to see more about how the Gatefeeder works.
