Questions & Answers

25 Customer Questions

How many days can you set the timer for ?
Answer by ChewyJan 20, 2020
Once the desired meal times are programmed you will not need to reprogram the Cat Mate C300. It can dispense food everyday until the battery runs out. This product runs on 3 AA batteries (not included), which provides approximately 12 months of operation. When changing the batteries, you should replace them within 60 seconds to prevent the loss of programming.

What happens if the cat is eating out of the open space and the feeder starts to move to the next bowl? Can it detect an obstacle like a cat's head or does it just keep trying to open?
Answer by ChewyNov 01, 2019
The Cat Mate C300 does not feature any sensors to prevent it from closing while the pet is using it. However it is designed with a rotating bowl and a stationary opening for them to access the food. The bowl will rotate at each programmed feeding time to the next compartment and then remain in that position until the next programmed feeding time. So it will not move while the pet is eating, unless it is at programmed feeding time. The bowl rotates at a slow enough speed that it would give plenty of time for a pet to be clear of the rotating compartment.

What are the dimensions of the food trays? Are they deep enough to hold a cat 3" diameter cat toy?
Answer by ChewyMar 19, 2020
The dimensions of this feeders compartments are as follows: 6 inches at it's widest point, 2 inches at its narrowest point, 3 3/4 inches from the inner most point to the edge of the compartment, 1 1/2 inches deep at it's most shallow and 1 3/4 inches deep at it deepest.

Does this feeder have an hourly timer, 12 or 24 hour timer? Thank you
Answer by ChewyJul 18, 2020
The Cat Mate C300 Automatic Pet Feeder can be programmed to open at your pet's normal feeding times, twice a day. You may create any timeframe you'd like.

Easy to use, gives meals on time

We got this feeder for our cat who needs to eat three times a day so that the pet sitter only needed to come once per day to fill the feeder. Our very determined cat could not get the lid off the feeder, although she did manage to rock and flip it over and cause the wet food to leak out of the sides. The feeder does have holes so that you can screw it down to a flat piece of wood and once we did that it solved the flipping-over issue. The refrigeration component could be better, it kept the food cold for about 5-6 hours. After 6 hours the food starts to slowly come up to room temperature. Overall it is a great feeder, easy to use, does what it says on the box. Would recommend.

Works well

I have been looking for an automatic feeder for my middle size dog for a while now. Had tried other that various problems. This product has worked very well for me. I prep the three trays the night before and put it down in the morning. She has taken to it quickly. The ice pack makes it so I have no worries about the food.

Fine until your cat figures out how to open it

$50 is far too expensive for this contraption. This feeder was okay, I didn't love that there were only five spots so I would have to refill it every two days, but it worked just fine. Until my cat figured out how to open it. My cat, sweet boy, is very dumb, but he easily worked out how to open the lid. This feeder is not cat-proof, especially if your cat is obsessed with food.

Cat Feeder stopped working

I really loved this feeder and it was going great until it stopped working. It has only been half a year and it stopped working. I’m extremely disappointed.

Catmate 300

I went back and forth between the catmate 200, 300, and 500. And I was genuinely really confused and concerned with reading all the reviews that this would probably not work. Ultimately I went the 300 and I only want to feed my cat three times a day, and though the ice pack is only under two bins, the immediate feed and the second feed, it’s still ok. When I get home I change the ice pack to a new one and it’s been working out great. I might upgrade to the 500 if I see my cat is still hungry. But this has been a stress reliever and I am not home in the middle of the day and I didn’t want to free feed him. All in all I am very very happy with this purchase. My cat likes to get on top of it letting me know he’s done too. Which I think is adorable!

Cat Mate Automated Feeder

I will say it works well, love that the dish and lid are dishwasher safe and that I was able to go to the manufacturer and get an additional "freezie pack". The ONLY thing I do not like is that the timer is always earliest to latest and that is not always what I want. If I go away for the evening, I cannot set it to feed her at say 830pm and then at 530am - it swaps them so it is not a huge value add in that sense. It is great for while I am at work I can set for her midday and then her dinner before I get home. If I had known about the timer I might have looked into something else but it works during the week when I go to work.

Lasted 2 years

Bought it in 2020. Clear instructions. Easy to set up. Used it for wet food. Easy to wipe clean. Battery powered but they last a long time. Doesn't take up a lot of space. Ice pack is easy to take out and put back. A great and simple automatic feeder. I would give it 5 stars but it stopped working out of nowhere today. But at least we got 2 years out of it. I will be ordering one again and hopefully we don't have the same issue.

Finally a wet cat food feeder that works!

The Cat Mate is a great product. It has worked perfectly since I set it up. It can be used for wet or dry food. You set the schedule (you can have two feedings on the schedule in one day). My two cats have no difficulties eating from the dishes, and they are the only ones who wake up when the feeder opens for their breakfast. The feeder is well made, easy to clean, and a reasonable size. Well done!

Works Well - Easy to Use

This feeder is easy to set up. It took a few times to get the hang of removing the cover. Cat's face is slightly squished when eating, but he gets the food out. The bowls is large to wash every day with lots of crevices that stay wet. I've ordered a replacement bowl from Closer Pets so I wouldn't have to attempt to dry this one well before putting the food in for the day. I like that it makes some noise when rotating so he knows the food is there.
