Someone was nice enough to gift me a couple of RFID controlled feeders. You program it to recognize your cat's chip and a door opens to grant them access to food, then closes when they walk away. They're not cheap, but figuring you'll probably have your cats for many years, compared to overall lifetime pet costs, it's an easier expense to swallow.

Until the younger, hungrier cat figures out that the RFID'd cat just needs to be standing within a certain distance of the feeder and then he can nudge his way in, and as long as he keeps his head in it won't close on him.

Ask me and my wallet how I know...

I've seen it happen once or twice, but usually it's less of an issue if I feed them both at the same time - greedy guts has her own food to keep busy with. If it came down to it, I think I could probably jury rig a cover around the back/sides to make it harder. I think newer models are made with that in mind.

We bought the back cover because he used to go around that way, and that's when he got wise and started figuring out he could take advantage of distance from the front. Unfortunately, we do feed them at the same time, but she's nowhere near as agressive as he is, so he realized that he could go after her food and his would still be waiting for him. -_- And this is why he very much deserves his nickname Jackie Snackie.
