Pet Cage and Pet Auto Feeder

My life is getter lot easier nowadays...with some extra cost that I have to spend, for sure. Previously, I have only one cat, huge cat (weighted 6kg), named Kiki. I bought 3 feet non-tier white cage for him, and this cage is used only to put him after bathe, or whenever guests are in the house. However, having another small cat (weighted 1kg), named Kobe, this cage seems irrelevant. Kobe being super active, will always scream and walk madly in this small cage. With Kobe tailing Kiki 24/7, I thought of getting them another bigger cage. Well, I can see how stress Kiki with Kobe.

I went to few pet shops and browsed through out the web and found one website, that no one can beat (the price). The website Kucing4sale is in Manglish, hence I thought it is managed by a Malay. But when I called, he turned out to be a Chinese. Hubby and I drove to Taman Desa where we couldn't locate his shop. I called him and found that his shop is in his house.

At first, I wanted to buy the promo big black color cage with the size of 53"H x 36"L x 23"W (133cmH x 90cmL x 58cmW) that cost only RM269. But after few seconds, I changed my mind and chose the white color, coz white looks cleaner and better...with extra RM30 lah. Hmm...close one eye, and so I bought the big white cage, smaller by 2 inches than the big black cage. The size is 51"H x 36"L x 23"W (133cmH x 90cmL x 58cmW) that cost RM299. 

Installing the cage was quite challenging. It took two persons to have it stand still. This cage comes with tray, wheels, and 3-tier platform. Earlier, I purchased 1-tier platform separately, for the old small cage. So I took it out and install it in this bigger cage. Now, Kiki and Kobe look more comfy in this 4-tiers platform, where they can freely hop here and there, and have their own space to sleep.

One day before, I told hubby that we should get an auto feeder for Kiki and Kobe. I have this idea for quite some time, coz we always travel around. I have no issue with Kiki, for he knows how to budget the portion each time he wants to eat. But with Kobe around, he will eat it all!

I've been holding the feeling to buy this thing due to it's price. Average price that I see is from RM300-RM400 per unit (with different brand and function, of course). Knowing Nursemaid as the most popular brand, I tried to look for other options. The cheaper that I can get was RM320. 

So I called another pet shop in Puchong caled Pets4U is selling Hola brand, with the price of RM245 (10% discount for purchase above RM100). I straight away bought it, without a doubt. This electronic auto feeder has timer for meal time, portion control, and voice recording function, with LCD panel. The food container can store up to 5 liters of cat food. See here for more funtions. I tested to record my voice with few shake of friskies plastic. It sounded super funny! Even funnier when Kiki and Kobe looked at the auto feeder, then looked at me! Hahaha!

With 3 times of meal (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), 3 portions each, I can straight walk out from the house, without to think of them being hungry. Fiuh!

Total damage : RM299 (Cage) + RM245 (Auto Feeder) + RM45 (Extra Platform) = RM589. Pfft!

Note : This does not include monthly maintenance of pine wood pallet for litter box. Yes, environmental-friendly Feline Fresh pine wood with instant odor control that absorbs 4 times more. Gile tak? And they only eat Friskies...particularly Ocean Platter. Nothing else. Haih...loving them to the bones!

NEKCIK said...

alahaii maheii lah sangat lak auto feeder tu..kalau ada 6 ekok camner yer..diorang suker tumpahkn makanan..satu lagi nekcik tengah survey auto poo poo sbb tak larat nak scoop!! paling murah rm180..

BibiErr Karim said...

Demi 'anak'. Kalau gi vet, ubat flu diorang lagi mahal dari ubat kita. Quite pricey kan auto feeder tu tapi memang worth it sangat. *Kobe super comel rasa nak gomol*

Biqque said...

HB, tah tetiba buh nama kobe sbb initial K jugak mcm kiki haha. yg ko nak urut dada meng tu nape??? hahaha!

jasnani, brapa ekor?

nekcik, kalo ramai sgt, tatau la camne, tapi yg ni portion control. sekali turun 1/4 cup. most can go is 12 kali per meal. byk tuh! auto poo poo tu i dah tgk, ada yg kata ok, ada yg kata tak. but interesting la. cuma sesuai utk jenis pasir. i guna pine wood, so kayu2 tu rugi la if jatuh skali.

bibierr, mmg, kalo pasal diorang, abih duit i. makan jer berkilo2. ngan pine wood lagi. ubat2 kalo sakit lagi. haih...harap2 diorang ingat la kat akhirat nanti hehehe! skang kobe dah besar, tapi dia jenis benggal campur, so panjang skit. kiki tu jenis gemuk!

Orga said...

elok la tu..aku pulak 2-2 betina, hehe...tapi serius, aku tertarik dengan auto feeder tu, lepas ni taklah risau sangat kalau kuar jalan...

Diana Diane Teo said...

Biqque, you treat your cats/kittens like your own kids! Hahaha...

Biqque said...

orga, aku mmg dari kecik bela kucing jantan. tapi mmg senang tau auto feeder tu, nak2 kita yg slalu berjalan ni kan. aku mmg tak suka boarding, aku sian sbb kiki penah try, dia stress n tanak makan. so aku biar je duk kat rumah.

diana, indeed. i love cats very much and kiki has been my anak before i got pregnant. and he will still be :) kobe is hubby's anak. hahaha!

NEKCIK said...
