This brilliant solution to any multi-pet household is definitely a must-see! Check out this Pallet Two-Station Cat Feeder with spots for dry food, water, and moist food for two cats! I was fed up by fighting cats at feeding time, so made this double cat feeder with a central dividing wall.
Separate cats; one Pallet Two-Station Cat Feeder and more peaceful feeding times:
I only used about 1/2 of a pallet, two layers of lacquer and then a finish polish. I used all the common tools; saw, hammer, sanding machine, and screws to fasten it together. The central part with the cup holders is fully removable for better cleaning.
First, I cut a pallet in half lengthwise, and then I cut it just past the center set of blocks to leave the upper and lower stringers, two sets of blocks, and the deck boards intact. I filled in and shifted the deck boards as necessary to get a fairly tight fit since this will be the bottom and may catch stray kitty crumbs here and there. I flipped it over so that the deck boards were sitting on the ground and then added two small pieces of wood on each side, about centered, for the central removable feeding area to slide into and stay securely in place.
Pallet Two-Station Cat Feeder – central feeding area:
This used five small pieces of deck boards. I trimmed down some small pieces of wood and used these to hold the vertically-stacked deck boards in place. I installed the other two deck boards horizontally. Additionally, I added more small ripped-down pieces as little footers on the outside edges. Next, I added a central board, and with the little footers, these allow the bases of the feeder bowls to recess slightly. The two horizontal boards were cut out to allow the bases of the feeder bowls to recess slightly. These can be cut with a hole saw, or drill and use a jig saw or something similar.
Now my lovely little-furred friends can eat dinner without having a brawl. :) Simple solution!
