How long would this feeder last if it was programmed for normal 3x a day with it being filled to the highest capacity? We're going to be away for a few days and looking for a automatic feeder that can last 3-4 days?
Answer by ChewyJul 31, 2018
It has a maximum 3Kg (6.5lbs) capacity food hopper (approximately 1 month for 1 cat) and is great to have if you are on vacation.

I have feeder similar to this one it's amazing but my cats can put their paws up where the food comes out & lets food the purpose of only giving them a certain amount. Would the same thing happen with this feeder?
Answer by ChewyAug 06, 2018
This feeder has locking features on both the top of the storage container and where the food is dispensed to prevent your cats from overindulging.

Could you explain the "frequent feed" function? How often is "frequent"?
Answer by ChewyAug 18, 2018
The Frequent Feed function allows the daily food allowance to be served over the course of a day, dispensing a single feed unit at a regular interval between a programmed start and finish time. The function is designed for pets with specific dietary requirements (e.g. diabetic cats) or if you wish to regulate the speed of your pet’s food intake.

Can you set each meal for a different amount? For example: Meal 1- 10g, Meal 2- 40g, Meal 3- 20g ?
Answer by ChewyNov 01, 2018
The meal sizes of each meal can be adjusted so that each meal can be a different amount.

4 Purchased

In December of 21 I purchased one of these feeders for our cat. Since we have to put her food in a room our dogs can’t reach and we don’t see often I would forget to fill her bowl and she ate too much with the gravity feeder. It has worked so well for her and the batteries are still going strong. With that being said I bought 3 for my three dogs in May of 23. They were assembled at the same time and the batteries were put in at the same time. One of them says the batteries are low even after putting in brand new batteries, and another one appeared on, but stopped feeding. They are loud, but we have them set to feed at 7 and 7, so we are awake when they feed. The dogs feeders do get stuck occasionally with the bigger kibble, but they hold approximately 7 days of food for one dog (golden retriever and golden doodle). I’m not sure what causes the inconsistency with the battery life ability.

A decent feeder

I bought two of these feeders almost a year ago for my two cats. It took a bit of effort to program but wasn't too difficult. I like that it allows for three meal times so I can feed my cats when I'm at work. The tank holds about a months worth of food, and the bowls are wide enough that my cats don't get whisker fatigued. At first, I was annoyed that it took C batteries, but I prefer batteries over plugging it in because even when the power goes out, I know my cats will still get their food. Having automatic feeders has made my life so much easier because my cats don't harass me when it is getting close to their meal times.

once they figure it out…

We had it for about 1-2 years…but we added a naughty little one to the bunch and she immediately figured out how to knock it over and break the nozzle. After it’s broken it’s done for. And the turnstile thingy inside never worked well again… Regretfully had to throw it away and will now only use an automatic feeder W/O a nozzle. If you have a well behaved cat who waits patiently this is a good feeder to have for a few years

Do not buy

This thing is totally useless and hard to program. We still haven’t figured it out, each time we program it dispenses nothing. It’s made of the cheapest materials and can easily be knocked over causing food to spill not from the top but the bottom where the container connects to the bowl. Save your money.

Not what I had hoped for

The programming isn't as easy as the pamphlet describes. I can't get it to turn off easily. I bought 2 and I'm dissatisfied. The cost wasn't worth it. I like how it all comes together easily and apart to clean.

We have tried everything to get the timer and clock to set correctly. Nothing we did worked. Back to feeding my rabbit with a scoop!! System will not release any food.

Just what we needed for the Porch Puss

We have our indoor cat and several that have adopted us outdoors. This feeder was just what we needed to help those cats when we're away. Only problem was the raccoons, who (being as clever as they are) pulled it from the 'nook' we had hid it in, knocked it over and disassembled it to get the food. Next time, we will do as suggested and affix it to a board, then duct tape the hopper to the bottom, so they can't tear it apart. I've seen the same model for twice the price, so this was a screaming deal!

Not the one.

I didn’t think it was too bad at first, programming was indeed annoying, but not as annoying as my kitten. I wish there was a test button, where it dispenses food upon pressing, because having to program it to measure how much food came out was irritating. Yes. It was loud. So loud it would wake me up if I napped, but my job got so busy that I learned to sleep through it, so I didn’t complain too much. Luckily my kitten has always been the type to sleep through the whole night. The batteries are annoying, they barely fit, and the slightest bump and they pop out of place. Why. The batteries pop out but the bowl doesn’t very easily, it’s tedious. Beware of pets knocking it over, luckily he’s a dumdum but my cat’s zoomies led to the discovery many other reviewers refer to. And my kitten has zero self control. My kitten never figured out how to knock it over, though my cat knew. But what he did figure out was how to get food out of the spout. You know like Boog with the slurpee machine in that movie, Open Season? Think that. One night, it goes off as usual, but never stops. It dispenses forever. Endless kibble. Everywhere. My kitten is having a party. The screen is off, I have to take out the batteries, luckily a too-easy job. I pop them back in and…nothing. So I go buy new batteries, only for those not to work either. I hate this thing.

If you have a food fiend of a cat...

Bought this for an upcoming trip. Set it up to see how well it works. It programs fine and dispenses fine, however... If you have a cat that is all about food of any kind, then this feeder won't work for your needs. My cat figured out how to put her paw up into the feeding dispenser nozzle thing and knock out food. It doesnt have a sheild or anything. Needless to say, I returned it cause I don't need a rollipollicat when I get back from trips.
