    Sorry if this is the wrong place to post.

    Does anyone know if there is a product out there that seals a cat bowl while it is not being used, but will open to allow the feline friend to eat whenever they want to. At the moment I am having to check my cats food regularly incase any flies have laid there eggs on it. I am hoping that someone has a product whereby when the cat approaches the food bowl his weight will lift the lid allowing acces but when the cat has finished the lid automaticaly closes.

    Any help much appreciated

    Thanks:001_tt2:

    That would be really helpful; having the back door open in hot weather (what little we have) and as we have no catflap we have to leave it open a bit when Tilly is in the garden too so we find flies a big problem as the cat meat is a big attraction for them; they drive me mad and I don’t like the idea of them on her food!!

    Cat Food Pedal Bowl - an ingenious way for your cat to feed itself!

    We've seen it all now! This must be the perfect present for that cat lover. Within seconds cats get the message of how to reach their food (aren't they so clever!) – protected from flies inside a clear, transparent cover, which lifts when the cat steps on the pedal. Plus – the Pedal Bowl reduces the smell of cat food because the bowl is covered when not in use. Made of smooth, dishwasher-proof easy-to-clean plastic, it is a really well-designed product for all cat lovers who wish to improve the health of their cat. The Pedal Bowl won the prestigious Tomorrow's World ‘Best Invention’ Award on BBC Television. Bowl size: 16cm (6") across. Only available in pink - sorry boy cats!

    Did anyone type in Cat in the search box like the website suggests. Had a bit of a giggle over the tea towel holder and pencil sharpener!!

    Not that I'll be buying them may I add:smilewinkgrin:
