The programming was a little tough but I figured it out. My cat was scared at first but now I catch him being very aware of the time now. Great investment
So far everything is working well. My only complaint is the plug in the feeder itself. It doesn’t fit easily, looks a little off so may be a defect? Other than that it’s exactly as described. We ordered due to raccoons breaking feeders etc. I cut a slot in a plastic tub for the dish, concealing the feeder and put weights on top to stabilize. So far no raccoons have broken in to it or forced the cat food out. Very pleased with this feeder. Seems well made, sturdy, holds plenty of dry food and the manual is easy to follow.
Me and my new companion kitty bubba love the petlibro products. They work in tandem to give him exactly the amount he needs everyday and provides him with fresh clean water. He loves hearing the sound of the machine and will bolt from whatever room he's in to go get his food. The setup for the meals was kinda confusing and a little hard for me at first but I managed to work it out and my cat is happy and healthy so what more could I ask for in a product. As a fulltime college student and fulltime worker they help me so much when I'm tied down with classes and projects or stuck at work and can't leave to feed him but with these I don't have to worry and it's one less thing on my mind because I know he's good.
I love the how it portion sizes by tablespoon. I can also add my voice when it is feeding time. Plus, I can set it and forget it. You can power it via an outlet or by batteries, which comes in handy when the power goes out. I say it was definitely worth the price.
Packaging is very high end. First feeding went great. Just the portion size they needed. Their food has bigger chunks, besides the kibble, in it. Not really sure how well it will handle those yet. My cats will have to get used to the voice recording announcing it's "food time". Their ears perked up and they looked confused when it went off. Definitely recommend. Ordered in black, comes with white cord, so, that was a little disappointing but it doesn't affect operation. The lock feature is very secure and will keep my overeater out. Haven't had to clean the hopper yet but the dish just snaps out for easy cleaning. Will more than likely be ordering another one because I have 2 cats.
The pirate queen is pleased with this cat feeder. We all look forward to her first mate getting healthier by not allowing her to binge and purge any longer. Easy to set up but the portion area on instructions, suck. I have found when programming that setting portion to "P-3" for all 6 feedings seems to keep all 3 cats happy.
My cat is very food oriented and would pester me at all times of the day. I wouldn't mind this if she didn't start to claw at the furniture as a way to get me to get up! So, finding this was a GODSEND. I set it to give her little portions throughout the day (as early as 4 am and as late as 9 pm). She's already gotten in routine and has calmed down with the claws! The instructions were very clear and it was very easy to set up. I also LOVE that there is a top lock. She has already tried tipping it over to get to the food, but it was too sturdy for her! I can't recommend this product enough!
Easy to set up and use. And it looks great in my kitchen!
Easy to set up and dispenses kibble great for my cat.
