Making the lives of pets and owners better: This smart cat feeder has a camera

It makes perfect sense to keep an eye on our furry companions to better understand them. For example, if they’re not drinking water or eating their food, it could be a sign that something bad is going on with their health, outside of being picky. The problem, however, is that most of us lead busy lives, and we can’t always be home or right there to watch – spot, fido, or whiskers surely get the run of the house as a benefit. But thanks to smart technology, we can keep an eye on our pets, even remotely. Cue PETLIBRO’s automatic feeder with a built-in camera called the Granary Camera Feeder. It has a 1080p HD webcam and can capture or record your pets eating in real-time so that you can check in and better understand their health. If their eating habits or behaviors change, you’ll know right away.

The HD camera has a 145-degree wide-angle lens, which gives you a wider perspective, allowing you to see more of your pet’s feeding status and the surroundings. Moreover, it has night vision support, so even if the lights are off in your home or it’s dark, you can still see what your best friend is doing. Of course, there’s a lot more to it, but as far as automatic cat feeders go, this thing will make your life – and your pet’s life – much better. Let’s paw in.

You should also know that from November 23rd until November 27th, there will be an exclusive Black Friday deal available for 24% off.

What can the Granary automatic feeder do?

PETLIBRO

First and foremost, it’s a feeder. You load food into a reservoir at the top, which holds 5 liters or enough for up to ten meals, and every day at a designated time, it will dispense the food for your cat or dog to eat. It’s designed for cats, but you could also use it to feed small dogs. The food chunks need to be between 2 and 15 millimeters in size.

The feeding scheduler works on its own, but you can always connect using the PETLIBRO app – the Granary supports 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi networks. A rotor implemented in the tank base works with the twist-lock lid, desiccant bag, and sealing strip to seal the food between feedings and keep it fresh. That way, you don’t have to worry about it drying out, going bad, or little critters getting into it.

Meanwhile, an infrared safety system will stop the food from dispensing if your pet’s paw is detected in the feeder area. Low food reminder alerts also let you know when it’s time to refill the reservoir.

But beyond that, it has a built-in 1080P HD camera, which you can use to watch, check on, or playback videos of your pet. A TF card – MicroSD – or cloud storage is necessary to record the videos. If your pet is near the feeder, you’ll get alerts right on your phone, and you can begin watching remotely in real-time. You can even snap still photos or begin talking to your pet using your phone’s microphone. If you can’t check in right away, that’s fine because, after a motion alert, the system will begin recording to show you what’s going on and precisely what your pet is doing.

A special “preserve routine” allows the system to share a comforting call featuring your voice anytime your pet is near the feeder. For example, you can say “Hi honey” or “I love you,” and with the two-way voice system, you can also talk to them live.

Why do cats twitch in their sleep? The real reasons behind this curious behavior
Here's when you should be concerned about your cat twitching

While appreciating your cat's various sleeping positions, you may have noticed some twitching. Have you ever wondered why this happens? Are they dreaming? What is going on in their bodies? We've uncovered the reasons behind this peculiar behavior to share what it means, why it's important, and when to be concerned. Read on to answer the question: Why do cats twitch in their sleep?
What are the sleep stages for cats?

On average, cats sleep 15 hours a day as compared to the eight hours of sleep humans (should) get. It would appear that cats understand the value of sleep and prioritize taking time to rest. Sleep helps them recharge, maintains their immune system, and supports their general well-being. Essentially, adult cats experience three stages of sleep and kittens experience four.
Catnaps
The lightest type of sleep is the short “catnaps” felines take. During this stage, cats are very aware of their surroundings. You may notice that while your kitty is taking a catnap, their ears still turn in response to sounds. Initially, wild cats used catnaps (as opposed to deeper sleep) as a natural defense mechanism and passed this behavior to modern domestic cats.
Light sleep
Light sleep is between a catnap and deep sleep in terms of the level of awareness cats experience. In this stage, cats are still able to pounce at a moment's notice if necessary. This stage lasts an average of 25 minutes before deep sleep sets in.
Deep sleep
Deep sleep is also known as the rapid eye movement (REM) stage of sleep. When truly sleeping, cats cycle from light sleep to deep sleep and back again. Deep sleep only lasts 5 to 10 minutes at a time and is when cats twitch and likely dream. You may also notice that your pet is harder to wake when they're in this stage.

Why do cats fight? They’re not just being jerks
The real reasons your cats might be fighting

When cats display behaviors that we humans consider socially unacceptable or quirky, the temptation is often to say, "Cats!" or "What jerks."

Sometimes, these statements are all in good fun and tongue-in-cheek. Think: Is my cat plotting against me when they stare? Does Kitty want me to get fired when they hop on my work-from-home virtual meeting? The truth is that cats don't display behaviors out of spite, though. Instead, behaviors are a form of communication — a clue into your pet's feelings and challenges.
