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

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.

How do you set the time on the machine after you set the meal time.
Answer by ChewyJul 20, 2017
To set the time, 1. Press the SET button. The hour digits will flash. 2. Press the ▲ or ▼ buttons to find the current hour and press SET again to save. 3. Once hour is saved, the minute digits will flash. 4. Press the ▲ or ▼ buttons to find the current minute and press SET again to save and enter Meal Time Setting Mode.

Great Purchase - 2nd One

Love this product. We previously purchased one for another cat we had adopted and it was perfect for her. We've since lost our baby Chika to cancer but we adopted 2 more kitties after. We added a second feeder since they do not play well with each other when it comes to feeding time. These are amazing for our busy schedules and they work very well. Our Simba boy is a bit on the rough side so he has figured a way to hit the feeder with his head, bite at the drop area and he gets a few scraps to drop between feedings (still working on how to attached it to something too heavy for him to move around but that's not an issue with the feeder, just our rough boy. Overall would for sure buy again!!

Worked great until it stopped working

Used this for two years and then one day it displayed the EEEE error message which means a piece of food is stuck. Cleaned it out and even with no food in the feeder the message won't go away. There is no way to reset it besides leaving it unplugged for a while and that hasn't done anything.

Not Cool

I work late sometimes so I decided to get these for my two dogs. They worked ONCE! I am so upset because they aren’t cheap! Now my dogs just have to wait until whatever hour I get home to eat. Do NOT buy these

doesn’t always work

I got three of them when we got a dog. They worked great for a couple months and it seems more and more they are missing dropping food for the dog to where I have to go in there and manually scoop it out. I’m assuming the cats is not working as much because where they used to always have food in this bowls now they are meowing for me to manually get them out food also.

Only last one year

This week I noticed problems with the clock and because of that is not dispensing the food. I came here to read the comments to see if someone else had experienced the same and maybe found a solution. And like all the other bad reviews/comments after more than 1 year the clock stopped working. I bought this on August 2021 and after 1 1/2 is stop working. It does seem suspicious that everyone is having the same problem after 1 year. Do not waste your money on this! Things do not last for ever but this was not cheap at all, I thought at least it would last minimum 3 years.

stopped working after 1 year

Worked great for the first 1.5 years. Now it only dispenses a small amount of food (if any) during its time. Hard resets or maxing out the food distribution quantity does nothing to fix the problem. This is junk. Don’t waste your money.

Worked great for 7 months

I found it easy to program, and it did work great for 7 months. It was very liberating to not worry about feedings. It's erroring out on the current time suddenly and it won't reset. It isn't dispensing food anymore because it has no concept baseline to work with. We'll be trying a different brand next time.

Keeps jamming

Not a reliable unit to keep your pets feed. Do not buy!!! It keeps jamming which prevents the automatic feeder from dropping food. It doesn't even alert you!! You only find out because your cat is SUPER hungry. I use dry kibble, just as instructed, too. Such an awful feeling to rely on this product to keep your pets feed while you're gone only to find out it malfunctions on a regular basis.

Not Perfect, But Works

Bought this a couple years ago for my cat, and this unit still works well. I especially like that the bowl portion is detachable and easily washable if needed. It also runs for a decent amount of time just on batteries, which is nice. However, there's a few things I think it could improve on: - The internal clock in the unit is slightly fast; over time, the schedule has been thrown off (ex. Food is set to dispense at 5 PM in the feeder; food dispenses at 4:45 PM in real time.) - Feeder needs to be slightly tilted so that food falls to the front of the bowl; occasionally the food builds up in front of the opening and gets stuck. That, and my cat thinks the bowl is empty if the food isn't more spread out in the bowl. - Larger dry food pieces tend to jam the machine, but a quick tilt and shake of the feeder usually fixes this. All in all, not quite worth the price given some of the issues, but it works for what I need.

Jams all the time

I have tried a couple different dogfood brands in this auto feeder . It constantly jams , errors out and does not dispense food. Poor pupper winds up starving when I am out of town. This unit is unreliable
