Oh my word what a fabulous bit of kit. It is pricey it is annoying that batteries are not included but Wow is all I can say. I have 2 kitties, one likes to graze and the other likes to devour everything in sight so it was hard trying to ensure both were being fed appropriately. One of the kitties is slightly on the heavy side so this allows me to not only ensure that each feeding station is specific to each kitty but that I can monitor how much is fed, their feeding patterns and their overall consumption to eventually work out the appropriate amounts to feed them.
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 already have three of the non-connect sure feeders, as my cats all have different dietary needs, and all try to steal from each other. They are great, and when we have had any issues, customer service has been great. 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!
I've been wanting this feeder for my cat for so long. He eats mature cat food, while my other 2 cats eat regular cat food. I don't have an issue with him eating the other cats food, but the other cats want to eat his food. Before this feeder, I had to keep his food tucked away and put it down every so often for him, or wait for him to meow at me. He's a grazer, so I love seeing how much he eats and at what times. I bought the hub at the same time so I could use the app. The only downside to this feeder is that the bowls are a bit small. They JUST fit the amount of food I feed my cat. I've also fumbled with the bowls while trying to call my cat over and the feeder thought I filled it with more food, and then that my cat ate a large quantity of food. I wish you could edit the feedings/refills on the app.
Je l'ai acheté car deux chattes. Afin de gérer les portions pour chacune et empêcher l'une et l'autre de manger la gamelle de l'autre, il me fallait une gamelle exclusive qui ne s'ouvre que pour l'une des deux. Puis je voulais vérifier la quantité mangée. J'ai acheté le hub avec. Et cela fonctionne très bien. Les informations sont bien diffusées que l'application. Je connais exactement les moments où elle mange la nuit et le jour et les quantités. Parfait.
Great product! Easy to set up and use, easy to clean. Well built good quality (doesn’t feel at all cheap). My Cat took to it instantly, I didn’t need to go through training mode with him. Only downside is one of my other cats waits behind it and then holds the lid up so it can’t close when the authorized cat is done, then I find the lid won’t shut after he lets go and leaves so the rest of the cats get into it. I did order to rear hood as well, which was supposed to arrive the same day as the feeder but has been delayed. I’ve set it into a box while we wait for the hood. Highly recommend the connect version so you can adjust settings for clever cats you don’t want getting into (the version I got). Very pleased and it exceeds what my expectations were of it. We’ll see how it holds up over time.
