Worked really well and had peace of mind that cat was fed while away even though I had people check on her. I had to change the inside for the small feeding option, the instructions were basically remove 4 screws but omitted the rest of the steps however easily worked out and put back together, hence 4 and not 5 stars, also would love a battery power level indicator if using battery and not mains power. (You can elect to use battery as a backup or as main power source) Would recommend this feeder does the job well, sturdy construction, and you can adjust the amount of food dispensed and the feed times. Found it was easy to follow instructions in setting up the feeder. As said the feeder does come set up for larger kibble size food , for smaller ‘ kibble’ ( I have a cat) you need to change the inside rotating bit for the alternate one that is provided.
We bought this cat feeder, not because we are lazy, but because we are sick of the 6.30 am cat wake up call on the weekends. This dispenser has fixed this issue, so we now get to sleep in on the weekends again! A bonus is that the cat now gets consistent sized servings of food throughout the day, meaning he has actually lost some of the extra weight he was carrying.
I bought this because i was getting over my cat waking me up at 5am to be fed. I also thought it would help manage his food for weight control. Well it does pretty decent job at doing all this, however, all thats really changed is my cat spends most his time meowing in front of it and sticking his arm up it like he's Homer Simpson at a vending machine.
I've had the product for about a year now and it hasnt skipped a bit. Really helpful for those weekends away and taking the pressure off your mates when you disappear for a week or two at a time. Highly recommend. I also have a cat thats looking for a good home or any other home will do really.
Love this auto feeder. A bit expensive but worth it. Good quality. Only issue I've found is that we are having a major ant invasion here where I live in Australia, and the tiny little buggers have invaded it because I don't have anywhere off the ground to place the feeder. So nothing wrong with the feeder itself but would recommend having somewhere off ground level to place it.
Easy to set up and trouble free operation. The feeding action and sound freaked my two cats out when it delivered their meal the first time, but I think that will just take a little time for them to get used to it.
