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.

not the best

Got this to help our cat loose weight but so far it isn’t very good. Even though I have the amount set for them to get fed it will dispense more than I want. There has been times that I look at their food dish and it is full which I know that the amount I have programmed shouldn’t give that much. Sometimes it works well and other times it gives more than it should. The food when dispensed doesn’t come down where the cats can get it so we have to constantly push the food into the dish part so they can eat. I’m probably going to price out other ones and find one that maybe will work better. Not really impressed with this one. Also doesn’t give really clear instructions to what the portion size is

Great but...

I love this product and use it all the time. It has three different time slots for feeding and the amount of rotations goes up pretty high. I'm not sure how much food is one rotation but I usually stick to about 3 or 4. The only thing I wish it had was a indication about the food being low. If you aren't paying attention then it will still rotate with nothing in the feeder. Other than that, it works great!

Stopped working after 8 months

I love this feeder when it works. Since buying this my normally anxious cat has really calmed down. At least, she is calm when it's working. For a feeder like this, reliability is key. After eight months the clock/feeding schedule started to reset at the first scheduled feeding, effectively shutting it off. I'd set it up again, only for it to reset itself the next time it was scheduled to dispense food. The first time this happened was eight months after purchase. I checked the batteries, they were good. Changed to new ones anyway, no luck. Had a few changes back and forth, then it randomly started working again. Now another six months have passed and it has been glitching for the last week. I'm trying everything with no luck. "Old" batteries are still holding a nearly full charge. New batteries aren't helping. Luckily I work from home and can normally monitor the feeder, but I have a trip coming up and am going to switch brands in search of something more reliable.

Suddenly Quit Working

I did like this feeder for my cats. However, after 8 months using it, it randomly stopped working and did not feed my cats while I was working a 12 hour shift. When I got home they were acting super hungry and the screen on the feeder was frozen. I changed the batteries thinking they had just died, yet the screen remains frozen. Very disappointing. I also found that the food measurements were not accurate and I could not get the portion exactly right for my cats diet.

Can’t read the batteries

I’ve bought this feeder brand new and bought 8 brand new size C batteries. The feeder can not read any of the new batteries. So the product already doesn’t work right out of the box and I bought the feeder a few days before

do not recommend

my cat was able to not only remove the top container of food (giving her full access to the amount there), but was also able to stick a paw in the outlet of food and retrieve pieces. it also does not give out a consistent amount of food per each feeding (one portion in the AM could be 5 pieces and another one portion in the PM could be 30). would not trust this product and disappointed I had to lose so much money on something that doesn’t work as advertised.

Small portion size incorrect

Smallest portion size is 2 Tbsp, not 2 tsp as listed. Otherwise, seems to work fine

doubled their price

I bought this feeder a few years ago and it started acting funky this week. I figured I’d hop on and buy a new one since I bought my first for $45. But it looks like they doubled their price to about $90 and apparently that’s on sale from $120??? There are no updates or changes listed so I’d love to know where the price came from because the exact same one that I have now is certainly not worth more than $45

Love This Feeder

This was purchased to replace one that was accidentally broken. We have been using them for 6 years and we love it. My cats have to eat 3 times a day and this has the feature to schedule up to 3 times daily and the amount can be adjusted as well. My guys both eat prescription food, each different kind and amount and these feeders work perfectly for our situation.
