Hi Sirhugh

I had the cat problem too so made a feeding station from a plastic storage tub (somebody kindly dumped it in my street) turned upside down with entrance holes cut in diagonally opposite corners but slightly on the side rather than exactly on the corner, hedgehog shaped 5″ high & 5″ wide roughly. You need to rub down the surfaces with sandpaper as they can be sharp after cutting (with a hack saw in my case).
Put something on top of it to stop it blowing around or being shoved by determined cats & place the dish of food in one of the uncut corners so it’s away from the doorways. Two holes gives a feeding hog the chance to exit safely & with some dignity if another turns up.
Cheap & cheerful & quite effective, keeps the food dry too it it rains.
Good luck!
