The SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder Connect lets you keep track of your pet’s feeding habits and enables you to serve accurate portions every time you fill their bowl. The feeder connects to the Sure Petcare app via the Hub (sold separately). You set the portion size within the app and then when you fill your pet’s bowl, LEDs guide you to the correct portion weight within 1g of accuracy. Use the app to view when your pet was last fed to prevent double-feeding in busy households and view your pet’s feeding habits over time. Notifications inform you how much your pet eats at each visit to the bowl, whether they have eaten wet or dry food (when using the two half bowls) and when the bowl is topped up. The Microchip Pet Feeder Connect only opens for a registered pet’s veterinary implanted microchip or RFID collar tag to prevent pets stealing each others’ food. One collar tag is supplied with the product. It requires four C cell batteries which last around six months with normal use. Batteries are not included.

It’s easy to set up. I was a bit nervous about it but the app makes it easy and having the Hub really helps.
My heavy boy took to it immediately, I didn’t have it in training mode. And I removed all other sources of food to ensure the cats were comfortable. The second kitty is a skittish thing and so it took a lot of cajoling and getting him comfortable with it. A tiny trail of dreamies seemed to help there and within 2 days he was fine. I think it’s just the initial noise of the lid opening that made him super cautious. It’s not even been a week and both are, fed and happy - well the kitty that eats everything isn’t that happy as it’s not a free for all anymore!
I was cautious in spending the money to get this and the negative reviews did make me think twice but the way I saw it was, you wouldn’t be looking for a product like this if something wasn’t bothering you.. this is for me the only one that ticked all the boxes for what I needed. So opted to just go for it and formulate my own opinion!
I love it.
Either way, it's hard to set up and we haven't got it working yet plus our cat is suspicious of it.
Hopefully we'll get up and running at some point and learn how to enable intruder mode so his food doesn't get stolen. The app is really slow and cumbersome too which is a shame as it looks ok.
I decided to buy the connect version when I realised it had scales for weighing food consumption. One of my cats is rather overweight, and I need to more closely manage her consumption.
I am currently looking after an additional kitten (a foster) who became quite poorly and stopped eating for a couple of days. She’s had medication from the vet, and a special high calorie food to help her. I decided that ‘Sumo cat’ could wait a little longer, and poorly kitten would get first try at the connect feeder.
Wow, it is utterly amazing. You tell the app how much you want to feed, whether you have wet or dry in each bowl. It tells you if you have added the right weight to each bowl. It then reports to the app every time the kitten eats, and what weight of each food she has eaten. Incredibly reassuring to see that she has visited the feeder every couple of hours, and how much she has eaten each time.
I cannot recommend this highly enough, it’s amazing!
She needed to be put on a special cat food that my other cat can't eat, so I was looking for solutions for feed her as both my cats are grazers. I don't earn a lot of money so but £119 cat bowl was a lot but it is for my cat so I did. Now she is 10 year old, soon to be 11 and it is hard for her to learn new things but we preserved as it is our only option.
I opted to connect it to the tag that comes with the product and not her micro chip but last night I found out it opens for my other cat too, now, I promise you I did not connect it to him nor did it open for him up until last now.
So, it would seem it actually opens for any pet with a micro-chip that can fit under the arch. So I am now £119 down with a cat bowl that doesn't really work. Since I don't want to risk my other younger cat I have to remove the micro-chip cat bowl and put down normal food whilst I think off a different and cheaper way of feeding my older cat her food.
I will say, if you're trying to stop neighbors cats (non-micro-chipped) or big dogs from getting the food it will probably do the job but keep the box longer than a few day so you can return it if it doesn't work out.
