Things Your Cat Really Needs: RFID Cat Flap and RFID Feeder

Apparently, people who own cats are really obsessed with their cats. There are inventions out there for cats that seem really outlandish to me, but maybe it’s because I don’t have a cat. The are false teeth for cats, kitty litter contraptions hidden inside furniture, ottomans for cats that are made out of sandpaper so cats can keep their nails (paws?) well-manicured, and now we can add RFID cat flaps to the list.

So what is an RFID cat flap? It’s a flap, or a door, that remains locked until it picks up an RFID signal from your cat’s microchip, which then allows it to unlock. The benefits are that it keeps all other cats out of your house, because the cat door will only unlock when your cat’s specific signal is emitted; so not only will foreign cats not be eating your kitty’s lunch, but your kitty will also be safe and unharmed by other nasty cats that are out to get them. Also, the cat door has a light sensor, so it knows what time of the day it is and it will not let the cat out if it is nighttime (unless you want it to).

Another creative RFID invention for your litter of kitties is the RFID feeder. It works similar to the cat flap by detecting unique RFID signals from the cat’s microchip. One way of using the device is to help your cat with his or her diet. If you want it to gain weight, you can set the feeder to feed the cat more often or in larger amounts, but if you want it to lose weight you can do the opposite. If you have more than one cat, and they all have different dietary needs, you can program the feeder to feed them different types of cat food and in different amounts according to their unique RFID number. This way you don’t have to monitor their food bowls as much, and you can ensure that their following a proper diet. Now we just have to make sure that chocolate-face (kitty #1) who’s on a diet doesn’t get vanilla-face (kitty #2), who is not on a diet, to go up to the reader for him so he can get some extra fancy feast.

    Yeah…where do you find one of these? One cat was just put on a prescription diet. Need to keep their diets separate. This would be perfect.
