Cat food dispenser

This time we are going to create simple, fast and eco-friendly crafts. It is much more than just a feeder, because it is a distributor of cat food. We are sure your pet will love it.

For this we will need the following materials:

  • Three-and-a-half or two-liter plastic bottles should be more or less square.
  • Hot melt glue gun.
  • Marker pen.
  • Cutter.
  • The scissors.
  • Tape.
  • Counter (just in case).

It is preferable that the three plastic bottles that we will use are not round, because if they are, our dispenser will not be able to stand upright.

We will start by cutting out the bottom of one of the bottles, we take the extracted part and place it on another bottle that will be located horizontally, forming a kind of “L”. We are now going to outline the edges of the round piece that we cut using the marker. If desired, you can protect the vial from marking marks by using the masking tape.

Once we have made the outline, we will proceed to use the cutter to mark the line where we will cut and continue with the scissors. Also right next to this hole that we open, in the upper part of the bottle, we will cut another one where our animal will put his food trunk.

Now we cut the upper part of the third bottle, forming the hole through which we will serve the animal’s food. Make sure that the base you cut from the first bottle can fit over that last bottle to serve as a lid. If it is not suitable, you can correct the cut.

The last step where we will use the cutter is to make a hole in the bottom and side of the third bottle, where the food will come out and be sent to the base so that our animal can eat.

At this point we have all the cuts done, it remains only to join the two main bottles using the hot melt adhesive gun. The third bottle should be inserted into the first hole you opened in the second bottle, with the side opening pointing towards the part where your pet will eat.

Add adhesive to the edges of where you are going to insert the third bottle, but if you want you can strengthen it by adding a little more on the outside, but remember that if you use a lot of it , you can melt the plastic, so you have to be very careful and blow it out as soon as you apply it.

You’re done, now you have an ‘L’ shaped artifact, which you’ll fill with your pet’s favorite food by serving on top. Gravity will take care of keeping the “feeder” full, so you don’t have to worry about food for a few days. Cover it with the lid you created with the first bottle and it’s ready for your cat or dog to start using.

If you are an animal lover, want to take care of the environment, and love to make crafts, this is perfect for you. Enjoy it!
