Great idea, not as great in actuality
I love the idea of a way to feed the cats automatically. However, setting up the programming of this is very complicated, for me anyway. It feels like you need an engineering degree to get it right the first time and I didn't. Now I can't figure out how to change the programming. Another issue is the tiny amount the servings are measured in - 2 teaspoons each. I am trying to feed 2 feral cats who come by twice a day. You can adjust how many servings it releases at each timer setting and many time settings a day are possible. But 8 servings is maybe a half a cup. Not enough in this situation and that appears to be the limit at one time. I'm not sure this is going to work for us at all and that's disappointing. Maybe it can be made to work but I'm not sure I'll figure out out.
Awesome for long days at work
Love this pet feeder! One of the reasons my cat gained weight was because I would leave his kibble out all day for him to graze on while I spent long days at work. This is a great way for me to ensure that he gets smaller portions at each feeding and spreads out his meals so that he doesn't gorge at any given time. It's pretty easy to set up and the price point is very reasonable. Bonus is now my cat has learned the sound of his kibble being dispensed and happily runs to the feeder. It's like a little slot machine! :-)
Great For The Busy Cat Owner
This feeder is easy to set up and looks nice. I had been allowing my cat to free feed while I was at work and he ended up gaining some weight because of this. This feeder has allowed me to portion out his meals 4 times a day so he is not scarfing all of his kibble in one sitting. It's also a lot of fun to watch my cat bolt to the feeder when the kibble comes out like the winnings in a slot machine!
Does a great job feeding the cat
This is only my second feeder, but it is a great improvement. The food holder is airtight with a filter that helps the food stay fresh. Our cat is eating much better! And this one has an electric cord which is a vast improvement over batteries. I only wish the cord was longer, but we are dealing with it.
Worked until it didn’t
I bought one of these and one of Pawple feeder for each of my cats bc I needed to get them to stop eating each other’s food, as they are on very different diets. The concept is a good solution for a cat that is a compulsive eater bc they can anticipate when the next feeding is, it’s really helped a lot, and it helps protect my other cat’s food. It worked fine for cat 1’s food, or at least when I used it for cat 1. Hers are small, round kibbles. But for various reasons I switched Cat 1 to the Pawple and started to use Pet Libro for Cat 2. Cat 2 has small triangular kibbles. Soon his food started not coming out the chute, and I have to poke it to come out. This is fine if I’m around but would not work if we wanted to leave the cats overnight. There are a couple of other reasons why I decided to return it and get a 2nd Pawple: -It’s really hard to see the control panel to make adjustments bc it’s on the front -the cord is pretty short One thing that is better about this one is it’s easier to adjust the meal size than it is on the Pawple as it has up/down arrows. For the Pawple you have to cycle through quantities 1-39 even if you want to just lower the quantity a little
I have never seen Lucy move so fast as when she hears the food dispensing. We bought this because we work out of town a lot and we can't just leave unlimited food down for our little porker. My only complaint is having to get on the floor to try and program it with kitty face in my way. And no, I'm not going to feed her on a counter, just wish the controls were facing up.
It does the job, but be careful
We've had this for a few weeks now and it works just fine. Ours came damaged. The bottom isn't securly attached, and the desiccant box is missing the nubs that keep it attached to the lid. There was also a loose plastic piece and a random screw in the food container. Since we don't pick it up much, it's fine, but for the price, I was expecting a little higher quality.
Easy to use!
We've been using these feeders for about a month now and I only have good things to say. We took a risk and bought two, one for each of our cats. I'm so glad we did! First of all, the feeder is SUPER easy to program. The manual is very clear and also the design is intuitive. It's easy to change the settings at any time. I love that it can both plug into an outlet OR use batteries, so great for any situation. The feeder itself is a great design, it lets out dry food in pretty small portions so you just need to measure it out and determine the right amount of portions to dispense for your kitty. My cats love the voice message too. They hear my "Time for dinner" voice message and the clatter of food falling into the metal dish, and they bolt over to get their meal. I love using this for the early morning while I'm getting ready for work, and midday when I'm out of the house.
This feeder definitely serves its purpose. I got it for when I need to be away for a day or two. I’ve been using it as my regular food bowl so my girl could get used to it, and make sure it was actually going to dispense the food. Works great. Took me a few tries to get the schedule right.
Excellent Cat Feeder
Our cat always was begging for us to feed him until we bought the Petlibro Cat Feeder. Now he is more "food-secure" and is confident that the feeder will soon dispense more food. He has always been on Hills dry cat food, so using this feeder was a no-brainer. In order for the unit to fully dispense, we recommend that you keep the metal tray and chute clean and unobstructed. That said, we couldn't be more delighted with this feeder!
