  • Great concept, just did not work consistently.

    By on

    Bought this for my two cats. Idea was to have it feed them their morning meals, and the pet sitter would come in late afternoon to feed the dinner meals, and reload this for the next day's morning meals. Worked great ONCE, then not again. I tried 4x and although it ticked the time down fairly accurately, neither compartment ever opened and my cats were not fed. Thank heavens I tried using this a week before we were leaving. MUST SAY THE CUSTOMER SERVICE AT CHEWY IS BEYOND EXCELLENT!!! No problems whatsoever in getting full refund and many apologies that this failed my needs. Not their fault, in EVERY product there are duds. Oh well. Thank you very much CHEWY!!!

  • great product!

    By on

    This is a great product. My cat took to it very well. I wish I could put other dishes in it, because I don't like feeding my cat from plastic dishes, but other than that, it's great. Had to buy another icepak from Amazon. My cat used to get me up in the middle of the night to eat, and because I don't feed her dry food, I would have to wake up and go downstairs in the middle of the night to give her some wet food, this feeder solves that problem! Plus if I go somewhere overnight and come back the next day, this feeder will provide 2 meals while I am gone. I love it!

  • So far so good

    By on

    I have been testing this for about a week and overall it's been successful. It took my cat a little time to realize his food was waiting for him so I started feeding him from the tray while I was home so he'd know to look for it when I was away. While the ticking sound from the timer is loud(ish) the feeder doesn't make any sound when it opens so my cat needed a cue to look for it. He figured it out within a day or two. For wet food, I find it's best to use this no longer than 4 hours from when you place the food in the feeder since the ice pack loses its chill somewhat quickly. I suspect you can stretch that longer if you put the food in frozen. Some nights I have to work late and hate I have been testing this for about a week and overall it's been successful.

For those nights, I set a small lunch time meal in the feeder so he doesn't have to go too long without food. As he's adjusted he either eats all of it or just enough to feel good during the day. Since he's gotten used to it I'm less concerned about him over eating from the feeder out of rushing or confusion about when he'll eat again. It's brought a lot of relief to my stressful days and reduces my bad mom guilt significantly! … more

  • Works great!

    By on

    This suits my purposes. My cat didn't have any problem figuring it out, and surprisingly, he didn't try to get it open. It does exactly what it's supposed to, and although it would be improved by having a better timing dial and an on/off button so I don't have to keep removing the battery to turn it off, it is really great for the price. What I like most is that it works for wet food--the ice pack stays cold for a long time. I'm very happy with this purchase.

  • A Life Saver!

    By on

    I got this on the recommendation of a friend. My baby Mr. Chivers has IBD and requires a 2am feeding or he will vomit. Due to his disease it's imperative that he be fed every 5 hours to prevent acid build-up. I now set this up before going to bed with his favorite wet diet and the ice pack. It keeps his meals fresh and him happy. This feeder has eliminated his 3am vomiting episodes. We are so grateful for it. It's easy to set-up, operate and clean. And it is so economical. We are very pleased. Great product!

  • Great Product

    By on

    Thank you Cat Mate. My 19 year old cat, who nibbles on canned food every 3-4 hours has finally let me sleep through the night! I set the timers for every 3 hours and set one additional dish out at bed time, and sleeping all night. Although it wasn't my thought when I purchased it, I can now leave all day too, without worrying about her food going bad in the dish, and having to return in 3-4 hours.

  • Good, simple feeder

    By on

    It is, thankfully, very simple. Works well. The ice pack is still cold 7-8 hours later. Haven't tested longer. Plastic is not good for some cats to eat out of. It can cause "kitty acne". I got a small ceramic bowl which I use in the feeder. That bowl goes in the freezer with the ice pack, assisting with keeping food cold longer. If your cat might bat the feeder around- as they can smell the food- tape in the battery. This behavior, along with scratching at the lid, seems to stop once they get that it will open at their usual feeding time. You can see and hear that the battery is working.

  • Good product for timed dispensing of food

    By on

    I successfully used this product back in the 90's for many years when I had cats that needed their food distributed at certain hours while I was at work. The product worked well back then and seems to be working equally well now after my recent order. The only issue I had decades ago was that the plastic on the trays would crack on the bottom after repeated use (super glue helped). So handle the trays with care and perhaps avoid excessive hot water. The plastic material may well be different and more durable now, so I only say that as a caution. I never had trouble with the timer mechanisms. Do keep an eye on batteries after repeated use to make sure they don't corrode.

I never had trouble with the timer mechanisms. Do keep an eye on batteries after repeated use to make sure they don't corrode. They might get a bit of moisture from condensation from the ice pack. I found the ice pack works as well as can be expected in keeping moist food cool for a number of hours. The pack is sizable and thick enough that it seems to generate sufficient cold. I know other similar product reviews mention that the ice pack is too slim to maintain cold for a sustained period of time (other brands use a sort of gel pack). I don't find that a problem with this Cat Mate ice pack. Handle the lids carefully since their hinging mechanism is simply part of the plastic housing. I thoroughly appreciate the Cat Mate C20 and am grateful it is still around after all of these years. It played a valuable role in the health of my pets then and is doing so again now. It's a reliable product. … more

  • works well for 1 cat....

    By on

    I thought this was be a good thing to use on the weekends so my cats don't have to wake me up so early to feed them. However, it's hard to time both sides so that they go off at the same time. My cats end up fighting over the food on the one side. This would be great if you just had 1 cat!

  • My cat gets it open

    By on

    The idea is great! My 19 pound cat has mastered the art of getting it open early. He now opens it within minutes. I wouldn't recommend using it if you are away for a few days.
