Is there a way to delete a microchip once you authorize it? I have 3 cats and currently want 2 to be able to use this product, but in the future I might need to switch to only one of them using it.
Answer by ChewyJul 14, 2018
The "added pets" in your feeder can be reset. Reset the feeder to factory settings, holding down the Add Pet button for 10 seconds (until the light starts alternating red / green and the lid opens and closes). Then add your pets in to the feeder again.

How long are the battery's expected to last and is their a low battery warning notification system?
Answer by ChewyNov 08, 2017
This product has a battery life expectancy of 6 months (4 x C cell batteries- not included). A low battery indicator will flash when the batteries need changing.

If I want one tiny cat to be able to eat all day and one piggy cat to only eat once or twice a day - can one feeder be programmed to do that?
Answer by ChewyJun 14, 2018
We recommend that each pet has their own feeder. This allows for the correct control of individual diets.

Is there a way to plug this in or does it only take batteries?
Answer by ChewyDec 13, 2017
At this time the unit runs only on batteries.

my big girl finally lost weight

I have two cats + new puppy and the one cat Dora was overweight and ate the others food. Instead of putting her on diet food and constantly monitor Todd’s bowl I got them both their own and now she’s only eating her portion of normal food and Todd can eat at his own pace. They took to using it without going through the training modes. Bigger more pushy animals could probably push the designated pet out of the way and keep the flap open to steal food.

Doesn’t work for long

The first 6 months this worked ok then it needed new batteries every 2 weeks and would glitch when opening and closing. It would also randomly open for other cats even though their microchips were not added to the SureFeeder system. Overall would not recommend, unfortunately this is the only one like it online.

The solution for greedy pets!

My cubby little Nubbin might seem like a sweet baby angel, but she was one greedy brat when it came to hogging all the food and not letting her svelte sister eat. I bought two of these and programmed one for each cat's microchip. I followed the training protocol in the user manual, and it did take 2-3 weeks to get both cats up to full closure on the feeders (because my skinny cat is a sissy). Nubbin is extremely food motivated, so she didn't care that the thing was moving around, she just wanted to eat. It's been a little over a month since we've been fully operational, and Nubbin has already lost 1 pound!!! She doesn't even finish the food I give her once a day, so I have officially confirmed her greed and thirst for household domination is what packed on the pounds in the first place. I only wish this feeder plugged into the wall instead of having to deal with a bunch of C batteries... it makes leaving them home alone more stressful in case that's the day or weekend the thing decides to die, which means fresh batteries before any trips.

Love this!

I'm grateful this worked out for me, considering the price. It took my cat about 2 weeks to no longer be afraid of it, but she's now using it. My other cat devours his portion of food immediately, but she is a grazer, so I was having to hide her dish and she would let me know when she was hungry. I'd either forget to hid her food when she was done and he'd eat it all, or she'd go all day without eating because I wasn't home. Luckily he hasn't figured out a way to get it open and he leaves her alone when she's eating. It was also super easy to set up. I LOVE THIS. I'm so glad I purchased it.

solved all my problems

I have three of these since I have pets on all different foods. It’s really saved me from stressing that everyone is getting the right food and eating normally. With multiple cats it was hard to make sure they each had the right amount of food and now let’s me see if anyone might not be feeling well and eating all their food. They surprisingly took to the closing doors well. Even my cat with seizures doesn’t seem bothered one bit. I highly recommend!

Stopped working

I bought two of these so each of my cats had their own. The first one has worked well and has had no issues but the second stopped working after about 10 months so replaced the batteries and it worked again. But now it stopped working all together after only having it a year. Disappointed this only lasted a year when they are supposed to last at least 3

Pricy but does its job

I was having trouble with my older cat becoming underweight while my younger cat became overweight from gobbling down all the food. This feeder, while very expensive, has solved the issue. The manual explains how to train your cat to use it, but honestly my cat figured it out completely fine without their prolonged training process (she is also fast to figure out new litter boxes etc). My only real complaint is that for the price this should really include stainless steel bowls rather than the plastic ones. You can purchase some from the manufacturer's site, but it's an additional $30!

Too expensive to be “ok”

I bought three of these pet feeders and 2 worked like they should for the most part, but the third stopped working after 6 months. I feel like all three feeders go through batteries way quicker than the 6 months others have commented. One of the pet feeders randomly stopped working and I have not been able to fix it. It just stopped opening and replacing the batteries and trying to reset it has not worked whatsoever. These pet feeders are just too expensive to not hold up or even last a year.

Improvements could be made

I got this because I have two cats. One has a sensitive stomach and needs a prescription diet but he is obsessed with eating his sisters food. He eats her food until he gets sick and I just could not continue babysitting him while he ate. Due to the price, I could only justify getting one unit. While I would like each of them to have one to prevent them from eating each the others food, I am not sure it is overall worth the cost. Getting the unit set up to recognize just one cat was really easy but there are some general issues with the microchip functionality. Sometimes the authorized cat will be completely inside the ring, hovering right over the bowl, and the lid will not open. Other times she will be standing fully outside the unit and it will recognize her chip and open. Next, the included bowls are both plastic which is a downgrade from the elevated ceramic bowls I was previously using with both cats. I know the company sells stainless steel bowls separately but given the unit price, I wish they would just include them with the unit since plastic is really not good to use for food bowls. Another issue we have ran into is the authorized cat has problems eating due to the shape and depth of the bowl. This was previously resolved by giving them an elevated ceramic bowl designed for whisker relief but now I am back to shaking the bowl throughout the day otherwise they will not finish food from the outer edges of the bowl. I know these are minor issues and at the end of the day, the feeder does what it is supposed to do in preventing my other cat from gorging himself on his sisters food. But for the price point I think it is lacking and some small updates could easily be made to the bowl to improve the overall experience for both me and the cats. For the intended purpose I would recommend it but overall I do not think I would purchase a second.

Won't work if your cat is even slightly large

Was the anatomy of a cat even considered when designing this? There's no range on the sensors, not even a few inches, so the microchip/RFID tag has to be directly under or between the sides of the archway. But the archway goes directly over the feed bowl rather than a few inches in front of it so if the cat's head is at the feed bowl to eat then that is the only part of his body under the sensor and the sensors on the sides basically end up just running parallel to the cat's chest. Seriously, this would only work if the microchip was in the cat's skull. I could work if I used the provided RFID tag and a collar but that defeats the purpose of getting a feeder that can read the microchip already in your cat. Do all these 5 star reviews just have the world's smallest cats?
