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.

Convenient if you don't have sneaky cats

I got this feeder to help when I go out of town, and it just became an easy everyday part of our lives. I fed 3 meals a day, and my cats would share. However, I would recommend spending a few extra bucks and going with a better style feeder. The way that the food is dispensed is through a chute and the motor rotates a cup in the chute that brings food down the chute and stops at the programmed amount. Well, that means it's super loud and takes a while for all the food to come out if you are feeding larger amounts (I have 5 cats, so my portions were large) Also, that means that there is food left in the chute. One of my cats quickly figured out that he could stick his paw in the chute and manually rotate the cup, getting more food. He then "taught" the other cats to do it, and now there is constantly one of them sitting at the feeder rotating the cup getting food all throughout the day. This also will stop up the motor and get it off track, so when actual mealtime comes, the motor runs and grinds and nothing comes out. The feeder itself is very lightweight. They have not been able to take the top off and get inside of the food container, but they have knocked it down and slid it around the floor. It is also only battery operated (which I realized at the time of purchase) but now I realize I would prefer a corded feeder. Overall, if you have one old, lazy cat who won't try to figure out how to cheat the system, this would be a good solution. However, the price point is pretty high considering all the issues I've had. I would recommend spending the extra 20 or so $$ and getting one that doesn't have a chute that the cat can stick their paw up into. I will say, this has a pretty large capacity that I was happy with (a full container lasts my 5 cats a whole week), and before my cats started to mess with it, it worked well. Battery life is long (still running after 5 months). But definitely not meant for any type of curious or food-motivated cats.

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.
