I had been looking for something to dispense my dogs heart pill at the times he needs it when we aren’t home. This has worked out great. It would be nice if it made a sound when it opened to alert him its time. It’s completely silent when it opens. This works out anyway and I’m glad we purchased.
I truly need this dish as I am not always home in time to feed dinner to my pup. It is very nice except for the knob. because the indent on the knob is slight, I have a difficult time grabbing it in order to turn in to the correct opening time. My hands are not tiny nor are they hugh. The indent could be a little deeper in order to be able to grab it.
Easy to use, easy to clean, my cats ate out of it immediately. Highly recommend!
As a grad student, I work during the day and have night classes at varying times. Having this feeder was life changing - no more waking up or coming home to a screaming cat who hasn't been fed. I set the feeder at night so it's set for the whole next day and it works great. I will note there have been a few times where one of the bowl's timers has not gone off, but this was fixed by replacing the battery.
We had the older version of the feeder that lasted for years. I’m sorry Catmate isn’t selling them anymore. These feeders aren’t as solid and lids lay slightly forward when open. We haven’t used the timer yet but we’re waiting for our next overnight trip since one kitty is able to pry the lid open (she’s persistent and intelligent). We’ll buy two more after we test the timer.
Timer doesn't always open, don't know if I trust it to feed my boys while gone for a day. One time they don't open, the next time the left side opens and right doesn't.
The ice pack stays cold long enough for you to be at work all day. This is perfect if you want to feed your dog or cat during the day while you are away. I had found a couple times one side does not open for some reason when it is supposed to so that is why I am giving it 4 stars.
I got this because my cat would wake me up super early in the morning for food every day, even though he's on a schedule. I set it for the morning and for lunch time, since I'm at work from 8-5, and I just feed him dinner at night. I only use this with dry food, so I haven't used the cold pack. This is also great when I have to be away from home for a night because I only have to have someone come once a day to feed him dinner and give him some cuddles.
These work great. We can now go away for an entire weekend. The ice packs keep the cat food fresh.
The feeder no longer opens when the timer is zero. Expensive for something that breaks in less than a year.
