Unique Exercise Routine

The wife and I are looking at a possible weekend trip for a networking event and since it is not even a whole weekend away I've been considering what to do with our cat Polly.

Polly needs to take her medicine every day and dropping her off at a friend's house or a cat-sitter isn't really an option because a good part of her crazy behavior seems to be due to the stresses of being shuffled around.

Yes, we could easily ask some friends to come over.  They would do it in a heartbeat, no questions asked.  It's good to have friends you can count on, but I don't want to have to ask all the time, especially since this is for such a short trip.  If I had a suitable electronic feeder that could keep a couple days of moist food wet & warm, that would be the ticket.  Polly gets her meds crushed up in a small amount of wet food (maybe 1/5 of a can).

I've been thinking about this and started a cursory search and came across this video of a cat who has figured out that if he beats the crap out of his automatic feeder he might get more food.  I say fill it with lower cal food and let him go nuts.  Cute video though.

Bart isn't that violent with his feeder, but he does push out the bottom bowl away from dispenser. Food then goes onto carpet.
