If you go on trips you need to invest in an automatic feeder as your back up! since buying it I am pretty impressed on the design on this one.
1. The cat dish is wide and deep so that kibble does not fall out easily when cats are eating like other feeders I've tried.
2. The lid is quite secure. My cats have tried to nudge and open it but with no success.
3. If you put batteries it will last a looong time so you don't always have to keep it plugged in.
4. Easy to clean, just take the bowl off and wipe it with a cloth. You can also clean the opening quite easily.
Overall, a great buy.
I love this! It works great, can set-up up to 6 hourly programs.
I recorded my secret cat whistle and my cats food bell. It is so much fun to see them running to the plate. They wait patiently till all portions are loaded up to the food plate. I just enjoying watching them. They are so silly.
If you want to record your voice to it make sure you speak close to the machine when you are recording otherwise it sounds muffled.
I used to have the wifi auto feeder and it never worked for me on my wifi, this plug and play works the best.
I am happy with this purchase and returned my other feeder because this one works much better.
And the design looks good too.
Nice to be able to schedule feeding times so that they are consistent everyday, haven't had for long but so far it's been working well and as intended. Will probably need to purchase another since I have 2 cats and they don't like sharing.
I had ordered a feeder in late September, and UPS lost it. Petlibro customer service was so helpful and got me another! This feeder is easy to set up and works great. It takes a bit to figure out the correct portions for meal times, but i used my measuring cup to check. Would recommend!
