Bought two for a covered porch. We were adopted by a couple ferals. Needed feeders for convenience and when gone on short trips. Feeders worked for about 3 weeks with some monitoring. Needed to adjust bowls frequently and it ended up being more time consuming and inconvenient. The slightest bump of bowl from cats would cause food to drop behind bowl instead of sliding into bowl. One feeder completly cut off. I tried new batteries and feeder never came back on. Second feeder started acting up not even 2 days later. Food was not dropping as programmed. When I would attempt to feed manually acording to directions, distributor would just spin dropping no food.

I work out of town and travel frequently. The pet feeder helps with making sure our puppy if fed and not have to worry about having neighbors come over and feed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JESS Works great!
Great product. Works well. Only runs on batteries. Wish we could plug it in instead and have batteries as back up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KathyH The product is good, but needs an improvement for the feeding dish placement.
The feeder is very easy to load and program. The top is hard to latch but can be done with patience. The feature that I did not like is that the pet can move the bowl while eating. This causes the next release of the food to jam and the full feeding is not dispensed. Eventually, the feeder cannot dispense food at all due to the dish not remaining in the correct position. If the pet owner is at home, this can easily be monitored. However, if leaving the pet for a few days, it is risky to assume equal dispensing of the food is reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ttlee2 Perfect for a stray wild cat
This has worked very well. We placed it on our front porch to feed a stray cat that won't allow us direct contact. Timer works well and the recent single digit temperatures did not compromise the operation. It did take a few tries to raccoon proof.
Very happy with the purchase. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kevin Effective autofeeder
Probably the most cost effective autofeeder I've bought ever. Hasn't broken down, battery life lasts forever. Easy and intuitive to program. This is great for my long weekend trips out of town.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dogmom Works inconsistently
The point of this feeder is to provide you the knowledge that your pet will be fed when you are not home. On many occasions the food did not drop. In one week's time, an average of 4-5 meals would not drop at all. Failure to drop occurred for each meal time, breakfast, lunch and dinner. I have followed all directions to the letter and still it sporadically does not drop food. I do not have confidence in this product to feed my dog while I am away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mathletics Easily jammed
This thing is trash. My cat broke it immediately, before the first feeding. The previous model was better built and slightly harder for kitty to jam; this one was dumping on-demand kibble in no time. Kitty's investigation also jammed the feed wheel, preventing future timed feedings.
Absolute garbage, do not buy.
