Rated 4 out of 5 by Renee58 Automatic feeder
It's nice to be able to fill this up and program it to what you want. The only thing that bothers me is the little container that holds the food when it comes out, it seems to slip out of place easily my spilling food out the sides. I also did not realize I could only set it for 3 feedings, I much rather have 4-5 to choose from. Other than that it's been reliable thus far!

Initially loved the product but within 6-7 weeks, the product stopped working consistently then within another week stopped functioning at all. There is a limited one year warranty but I have to ship out of state for repair so might not be worth cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by seth Works well. Minor flaws.
This is a great unit. For smart cats that are able to reach their paw up in the food chute, unlike other units, they will not get extra food out. Any other reviews that claim they can, their cats are actually getting the food that did not fully push through the chute door. So it's not extra food. This way, if the food doesn't push the chute door all the way open and they don't get a full meal, its possible for them to get the rest. He only way for a cat to get extra food would be for them to physically turn the windmill inside by pulling it, which may be possible, but I haven't seen it happen.
Cat food seems to have this issue, being too light to push the door all the way open, especially with the smallest portion, 1/4 cup. To fix this, I just used 2/4 portion, but only 2 meals a day instead of 3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KSip Easy to program; works great!
This is a life-saver! The food container holds so much food, and it's a safe and healthy way to feed your cat. The product runs on batteries alone, and I'm not yet sure how long they will last, but the overall experience thus far is wonderful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RisaFacil Cat can override too easily
From the first week my cat learned to stick her arm up in to the feeder and feed herself all day long. She's gained weight when the aim was to keep her healthy, yet allow me to sleep through her 3am hunger. Now, she and her brother cat are used to beating on it - so about 2 out of 5 times the food drops it goes UNDER the machine so they can't get to it.
System is easy to set, reliable, and batteries last a long time...so if you have a less cleaver and food obsessed cat, this may be a good system for you.

Great product. Easy to set up, use, and clean.
Well worth the money. Great convenience too when going out of town for a few days. I don't have to worry about my cat.Definitely recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PrincessPaisley Great for medications
I bought this product mainly because my furbaby needs meds at scheduled times. One of her doses is during the day when I am at work. It has worked perfect. The only thing g I had to do was increased the amount of food it is suppose to give to a larger amount to make sure the pill comes out. I put the med and a small amount of food in it each day to ensure the med is given and she eats it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ALMA18 nice product
I like the product, I have a small dog so his food dispenses perfectly out of the opening. The programming is a little confusing but spending just an extra few minutes it can be figured out. Of course due to the size of the container this is best for small dogs only. You can set it to feed for breakfast, lunch ,and dinner and also set the amount to feed starting with 1/3 cup. or you can set it to feed only once a day. I like the options it has and works perfect. you have to make sure the dry food is in mini chunks the smallest possible anything bigger and it will get stuck.
