Does this come with an attachment that will allow multiple cats to eat at the same time?
Answer by AlbaApr 05, 2022
No it does not but my cats eat together at the same time just fine

Can you set the meals up for a week in advance being away on vacation ?
Answer by ChewyJun 30, 2017
This unit dispenses meals based on the time of day so if a customer has to set one alarm at 7 am and one at 8 pm, the unit will dispense food at those two times every day.

Figuring up the total amount I feed my cat it would be 72ml per day, Inactive cat with joint issue, so I want to keep it at its lower end of weight range. I want to feed the cat twice a day. Can I set up different portion sizes for each meal, i.e. 2 24ml in morning and 1 24ml at night
Answer by ChewyApr 08, 2018
Food portions per meal can be changed with the settings display.

Does this retain schedule & voice recording if power shuts off & it has batteries in as back up? IF NOT, will if beep to notify that the machine needs resetting?
Answer by ChewyJan 05, 2018
This Feeder will do a factory reset if power is completely lost and not restored within a few minutes. If left without any power source it will need to be reprogrammed once power is restored.

Needs more trial.

I've owned this device for almost 2 years, about 6 months ago, I noticed that my cat was scratching and moving the dish to get more food. I adjusted the serving amount to see if that was the issue, I programmed the servings all the way to 10 and the device only produced 1 serving. Would like to see a more dependable feeder, we are home all week and weekend, just needed a more manageable feeding schedule for our fat cat. Because the device only allows 1 serving on a scheduled time no matter the servings amount, he has now become super thin. We have to now manually give him more food before and after work to maintain his weight. Which whole we wanted the automatic feeder.

Review for Item

We bought two for our indoor cats to use while we were on vacation. The voice recording is a nice touch as we put batteries in them a week in advance to make sure they would work while we were gone. Watching the cats come running into the room when they hear the call to dinner then come to a dead stop and swell double their normal size to see no smiling face attached to said voice was worth the price of the machine. I give it a four-star instead of a five because the food gets pushed back as they eat and they have to swat at it to pull it down where they can eat it. Otherwise, we have been happy with the purchase.

Solid Purchase

This is actually the second one of these feeders we have purchase since our two cats weren’t sharing the first one as well as we hoped. We’ve had the first one for about 9 months now and we love it. It is pretty noisy when it drops food in the plastic tray that comes with it, but we put a shallow, oval-shaped ceramic dish in the plastic tray so the food lands in that instead and the noise is significantly more bearable.

Worked Great at First

This feeder worked great and was reliable for about 1.5 years. We've always had it plugged in, so not operating off of battery power, and it's no longer keeping time and our cats are no longer getting fed. Disappointing to have to replace it so soon.

Works great!

These feeders worked very well for our ducks while we were on a trip. We programmed them for 3 meals each day and they ran off of batteries the whole time we were gone (about 4 days). Chewy also has very fast shipping.

Recording no longer works

we purchased two feeders for two cats. The recordings worked for about a week. The one feeder still records, the other one has this loud buzzer sound and not working for us to wake up to a 4am buzzer sound.

Easy feeder to use

Bought in August 2017, now March 2022, just getting the EEE error. I think because I flipped the device upside down this disrupted the machine’s mechanics. Troubleshooting didn’t work. Always reliable until now. Had a good run for four and half years. We lined the feeder tray then kept a stainless steel bowl inside the feeder tray as it was the only drawback to the black plastic feeder tray. Would buy again except feeders have advanced these years. Bought Petlibro as it has same features but a tilted stainless steel bowl.

Worked well for 4 years

I've had this for about 4 years and it's worked great. I'm going to get another one as now the turning mechanism seems to have worn down. It's nice to know my pet is being fed the correct amount when I'm now able to be there. I like the personal voice setting and my dog does too.

Can't even be programmed

I dutifully followed the instructions to set up the meals but this product does not even match what the instructions state. For example, instructions state that there is a number after the word meal (up to 4). Nope. You can't push on a button to go back. Customer service of Arf Pets was totally unequipped to deal with my complaint and did not appear to even understand what the issue was. I recommend no one buys this product and Chewy should stop offering this.

Spend more for a more reliable one

We bought one of these and it worked great at first, but then completely broke after 1 month (wouldn't dispense food at all). I called and complained, and they sent me a new one for free. I figured I just got unlucky and got a dud. The next one they sent me lasted for a year, until it broke while I was out of town for the weekend. I came back and it just had "EEEEE" on it and it wasn't working anymore. Needless to say, my poor kitties were hungry (don't worry they were okay). I talked to some friends who have different brands of automatic feeders, and they have all had theirs for multiple years without any issues. From reading the other reviews, it seems like this one pretty consistently breaks within a year. I'd recommend spending more on one that is reliable and will last for the long term.
