Rated 2 out of 5 by B2T1 Problem with timers...
I have two cats and need the lids to open at exactly the same time because one cat is a "chow" cat and the other is a reluctant eater. Even though set to the same time, the lids open up at significantly different times -- from 15 minutes apart to more than an hour. Thus, the automatic timer will not work for me -- even if though I bought 2 of them -- the lids all open at different times, even though they were set (to the best of my ability) to the same time. Frustrating!

My older cat is diabetic and 'nibbles' all day. This allows me to leave him 'fresh' wet food to accommodate his eating style. The chill pack helps keep the wet food fresh. I also freeze the food, which thaws slowly during the day.

I'm a flight attendant and my cat sitter comes in the morning to feed (when I'm gone)...she fills these dishes and sets the timer for 4 and 8 hours...keeps them on schedule and gives me peace of mind...for my toothless elderly gentlemen cats that don't do well with dry food. If you were in doubt...please get this...has worked wonders over the years...I got this one in addition to the one I already have...I have 4 cats...

Rated 5 out of 5 by ThreeCatsinTuckerGA Very good basic feeder.
I like the simplicity of this feeder. I have two more-complicated versions (for different purposes) but for basic needs (when one needs just a couple of extra meals), you can't beat this one. The time can be adjusted as needed (not-preset) and, best of all, my cat can't raid the box before the desired feeding time! I know some reviews have indicated others' cats got it open before-hand but it's working well for me and mine.

Purchased as a gift as we own two. Great for a weekend away with the caveat being wet food stays cool because of the cold pack.

If it worked, it would be great. About 50% of the time, only one side opens. About 30% of the time, neither side opens. Being so unreliable, it's pretty useless. I don't want to wonder if my cat will get fed or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grace Good job so far.
I bought this because I work late nights and wanted to be sure my 3 yr old remained on her feeding schedule. Thus far, it has been working great. Food has been staying cool, but I may have to supplement with gel ice packs during the summer months.

I have a special needs cat. I only feed her canned food. She needs medications during scheduled feedings and the C20 Automatic Pet Feeder works great. I'm pretty busy and can't feed my little girl during the day at times, so this contraption comes in handy.
I had to order a second ice pack, though, which you can get directly from the distributor in Texas. The C20 is rather lightweight, and my cat at times has flung the box around the floor a bit. It has screw holes to anchor the device to a wood board, but I don't want to bother with that.
