Title
(EN) CAT SCRATCHING POST FEEDER
(FR) DISTRIBUTEUR DE NOURRITURE POUR CHATS, QUE L'ANIMAL ACTIONNE EN GRATTANT
Abstract
(EN) A cat scratching post feeder comprising a dry food filled inner cylinder (1) with a spring-loaded lower lid (3), and a carpeted outer cylinder (13) that slides over the inner cylinder (1) and rests upon the inner cylinder's lower lid steel support rod (7). The carpeted outer cylinder (13) rests directly upon the lower lid's protruding steel support rod (7). Scratching action of a cat upon the carpeted outer cylinder (13) exerts downward force through the steel support rod (7) to the spring-loaded lower lid (3) causing the lower lid (3) to open and dispense dry cat food. The cat scratching post feeder can be mounted to a fixed wall (11) or mounted to the free standing base (14, 15, 16). The cat scratching post feeder is a dual function device acting as a scratching post and as a pet-activated feeder.
(FR) Distributeur de nourriture pour chats, que l'animal actionne en grattant, comprenant un cylindre intérieur (1) rempli de nourriture sèche, muni d'un couvercle inférieur (3) sollicité par un ressort, et un cylindre extérieur recouvert de moquette (13) qui glisse sur le cylindre intérieur (1) et se pose sur la barre d'appui en acier (7) du couvercle inférieur du cylindre intérieur. Le cylindre extérieur recouvert de moquette (13) repose directement sur la barre en acier (7) qui s'étend à partir du couvercle inférieur. L'action de grattage que le chat exerce sur le cylindre extérieur recouvert de moquette (13) applique une force descendante par l'intermédiaire de la barre d'appui en acier (7) sur le couvercle inférieur (3) sollicité par un ressort, qui provoque l'ouverture du couvercle inférieur (3) et l'apport de nourriture sèche pour chat. Le distributeur de nourriture qu'un chat actionne en grattant peut être monté sur une paroi fixe (11) ou sur une base séparée (14, 15, 16). Ledit distributeur de nourriture est un dispositif à double fontion, combinant un élément que le chat peut gratter et un distributeur de nourriture déclenché par le chat.
