In order to save my cat from her hatred for travel and her inability to portion food over time, we built an automatic feeder. Using our new FTDI we reprogrammed the DB Alarm Clock Kit so the user can set six different feeding times. On the correct day and time our new micro servos release the next portion of food into the bowl.

GitHub Repository for the Vacation Cat Feeder

Upload the Arduino program to your Alarm Clock Kit and build your own case.The commenting in the code will tell you where to connect the servos on the alarm clock.
