I tried following two options, there are more choices for RFID tag control, I prefer microchip since my cats don't like collars.

Meowspace box:

Door is rather small and deep. As a result, big cats cannot go in, and some cats might be afraid of going in. It does work in some cases, I trained Mitzie to use it, but others were not OK with it. The top of the box is somewhat flimsy, and eventually after Sophie jumped on it a few times (she is a big kitty, 5.5 kg) it was ruined and kept caving in. Eventually we replaced it with a solid piece of plastic and drilled some holes for screws, less convenient for refilling the bowl but at least it doesn't collapse.

Training for this one was much eaiser, Mitzie didn't even need training in stages and Stefie was considerably less scared of it. Other cats are not scared of it at all, and Sophie still doesn;t give up on the hope that it will open for her the way it opens for cats which are permitted dry food. I will be ordering more of these.
