    Peace of mind while away

    By Catlover on Jan 3, 2022

    This product solves two problems for me. It allows me to go away for more than a couple of days and know my cat will be fed and yet not overeat and it dispenses his irregularly shaped freeze dried food without getting clogged. I had to resort to a dog feeder because most cat feeders seemed to be limited This product solves two problems for me. It allows me to go away for more than a couple of days and know my cat will be fed and yet not overeat and it dispenses his irregularly shaped freeze dried food without getting clogged. I had to resort to a dog feeder because most cat feeders seemed to be limited to dispensing 15mm nuggets. This feeder dispenses a reliable amount of food each time once the serving size has been determined/set. It is also tamper proof, although my cat has tried to reach up inside, he has only been successful in dislodging one extra nugget. He has tipped the feeder over once but the locking top kept the food from spilling out. I love that you can set the feeder to dispense food at multiple times of the day. I set up a 4:30 am feeding so my cat can eat rather than wake me to feed him. I am happy that the feeder can be plugged in but also has battery backup. So far I am very satisfied with this product for the cost. … more

    Jury Is Still Out

    By Lisa on Jan 19, 2022

    I ordered this automatic feeder for my cat so he would not awaken me each morning and so I would not have to worry about rushing home from work. While I found it easy-ish to program, there are a few things that I think can improve the design and programmability of the feeder. 1. The instructions state I ordered this automatic feeder for my cat so he would not awaken me each morning and so I would not have to worry about rushing home from work. While I found it easy-ish to program, there are a few things that I think can improve the design and programmability of the feeder. 1. The instructions state to “remove 5 screws” to change to the small food distribution wheel. There is only one screw that I was able to locate. Therefore, I was unable to change the default large food distribution wheel to the small one. 2. No matter how many portions I programmed, the same amount of food came out. This could be a function of #1, above. 3. The clock is a 24-hour clock. While I understand why, it was inconvenient for me to have to count on from one time to the next. An am/pm setting could alleviate this for those of us not fluent in military time. Since I’ve just set this up, I’m unsure if my cat will eat from it. Knowing my cat, he will. I’m hoping it dispenses enough kibble for him. I may return with an update once I know more. … more

    Best purchase ever!!!

    By on

    Adopted our first cat and wanted to ensure we never skipped a feeding time and it worked perfectly!! A few months later, adopted a 6 mo old cat who eats like it’s his last and purchased the same feeder. THIS THING IS AMAZING!! It goes off at the same time, never had any issues with it - can unplug and move it around without having to reset anything crazy (besides time). Highly recommend!!!!

    Our Dog LOVES This!

    By on

    Our Australian Shepherd gets very expressive about her feeding times. This automatic feeder is helping her to learn that she will be fed without bugging the people in her family! So far, we absolutely love it, as well.

    Best decision ever

    By on

    Was going out of town, didn't have someone to watch 2 cats. This feeder has two size wheels for appropriate sized portions..4 time of day settings...and heavy enough to not tip over. I doubt even a racoon could get into it. Wish bought years ago.

    By on

    This item is not good for large dogs I have a German Shepard and when the food is dispensed the bowl is too small there is not enough room for the food to come down they get stuck…i regret buying it I cus I can’t use it….it’s only good for cats and very small dogs

    Works good

    By on

    Because I bought this for my cat, I had to change the portion wheel to the smaller wheel. The instructions don’t tell you that there is a large piece of the feeder you have to remove in order to change the wheel out, but it was not difficult to figure out. My only complaint is the timer is in military time so I have to figure out the correct time to set via military time. Other than that my kitten enjoys being fed automatically.

    Grown cat and kitty love this when we are gone. Husbands voice recorded on it and timed feeding up to four times a day. We just set for twice a day.
