I received the feeder about 2 weeks ago, and it's wonderful. My cat bugged me all day to give her more crunchies. She's discovered that "Mama" doesn't dole out the crunchies anymore, and she's adjusted to the new "schedule." I didn't buy it for her, I bought it for me! My senior cat has always had a feeding station for her food bowl and water bowl, so I put 3 bricks under a sturdy board to elevate the feeder.
I was hesitant to buy this feeder because several people report it stopped working after a very short time. I decided to take my chances. I've been using it only for a few days. I didn't have trouble programming it, and it's just what I needed to bring my cat to a better weight, and to keep her from waking me up up in the middle of the night. I really, really hope it works for years to come. I'll update my review if it breaks down. I hope not!
Great machine.easy to program. It is in military time but that's ok. My cat adjusted immediately but now is on to that it holds his food. He is trying to get it open. Lol!
This does exactly what I needed it to do. It's easy to adjust times and servings as I get used to what works best for my cats.
So far, this automatic feeder has done the job as advertised. It has operated on a set of batteries for 15 days so far and the low battery indicator has not shown yet, but I'm only feeding Mia 2 times a day. A volume control on the recorded message would improve the product and it would be nice if the company could make one that is sealed against the weather so it can be used outdoors. It's physical shape has made it difficult for Mia to grab onto to turn it over. Some mounting tabs on the bottom would be nice also for mounting into a surface. It holds a bit more than the 6L that is advertised which is good.
I wanted a small but good feeder for my cat. I have a townhome, so space is kind of important. This one is perfect for a cart, it holds a lot of food yet does not take up much space. It also is really easy to program, like easier than a coffee maker. Like it a lot, I just ordered on in the green color ( i got white) for my daughter and her cat.
Although I got this for 1 cat to keep his weight down, I have all 4 lined up waiting their turn.
Doesn’t even turn on. Plugged in and new batteries but won’t turn on. No display at all.
I purchased this item because I have already diabetic cat who cried for food during the night. I have 4 times to spread out and dispense her food, now she's happy and I am getting to sleep all night! Plus she thinks she's getting more food but it's her normal allowance just spread out since I control how much is dispensed each time. That makes her Vet happy
it was fine when i first had to program it, it was a little tricky given that i had to guestimate how many servings would fit but after a few months it would start to dispense food at times where I hadn't programmed it for and it keeps doing that up until now.
