This is the best idea I ever had, and I love it. My cat gets fed on a schedule whether I am there or not, and its portion control, a huge plus for my fat cat. I don't use the audio feature, but I wish I got the camera one, it would be so nice to see her when I am far from home, knowing she is okay, And with the battery back up all the recent storms did not affect her at all. Unlike the water fountain, that runs 24/7 and no power means no water. Overall, It is a great investment. I originally set it up on a breakfast tray, to keep it away from the ants, so I would also like to see a higher sitting version, so that the cat does not have to bend to eat, its better for digestion. I have it on the floor now, but looking for a tray the right height.
We just purchased the 6L WIFI white automatic pet feeder for our tubby food-obsessed Maine Coone mix, Bentley. So far we love it and it is working well. We were already using a kitchen scale to measure out his 6 small meals a day and feeding our shy cat separately since they are on two different kinds of RX food. Bentley RUNS to the feeder and NEVER leaves food for shy cat, Cooper, to steal. We’re hoping that with time, it will help Bentley beg less. Due to our specific cats, we will have to continue feeding Cooper separately or buy him a smart feeder that locks Bentley out. I’ve found both the feeder and app very easy to set up and use. We like that we can program up to 10 different meal times each day and that we can feed from the app in between feedings if needed. Fat cat has tried and failed to get extra food to drop from the feeder. He has been able to remove the stainless steel bowl but has not tried to tip the feeder or remove the lid yet. I wish there was a little more control over the exact portion sizes because of weight loss goals; however, after the first 6 or so servings came out of the feeder, each serving seems to be approximately 7 grams of our particular food so we’ve been able to get close to his food goal (might be different grams per serving with different sized food?). I would also like to see more of a locking lid. I put a small piece of tape on the lid to try to prevent a break in attempt. Stainless steel bowl is easy to clean. Bin that holds the food may be a bit harder to clean when the time comes. Overall, both fat cat and cat parents are liking this feeder.
Works great and its easy to use and set up. Cats ate out of it right away. I got this mostly as I wont be home for a few days. I do have someone coming over once a day, but this helps give me piece of mind! And maybe they wont wake me up anymore around 4:40am for food!
The automatic cat feeder was so easy to set. I love how you can set it to feed 4 times a day with different portion sizes. You can also record a message for your cat. My cat loves this thing! It's easy to clean and holds food for at least a week. So happy with this purchase.
We recently became foster failures, and our cat is obsessed with food. Being able to portion out the meals throughout the day has helped her not worry about being starving all the time. Fairly easy to set up, but you definitely need to read the directions. She also hasn’t managed to get into the top portion. Fingers crossed she doesn’t figure that out.
I LOVE this automatic feeder! It was easy to setup and I love having the ability to feed my cats from my phone. I set it up so that the kibbles spill onto my cats puzzle instead of into the included bowl. This way both of my cats have time to get to it and can't scarf down the kibbles. I had previously been using a manual timer for my cats' 5am feeding that I would have to reset each night. This is much easier because I can just set it and forget it until I eventually need to add more kibbles to the filler. I feed my cats wet food for their main meals but it is nice having peace of mind that if I am ever out and late for their feeding times or caught up in something I can easily press the button and they will be able to eat.
I enjoy the convenience of being able to feed my cats with just a few taps on my phone. The app seems pretty legit other than not being able to figure out how to dispense portion sizes. Also, the option to record a message for your pet is nice, too!I would have given the PETLIBRO Automatic Cat Feeder 5 Stars had the directions been better. I still can't figure out portion size which is a problem...All-in-all a great product and my cats adjusted to it instantly. I would buy it again and highly recommend it.
I have a 20lb, very food motivated man and so far (fingers crossed) he has not been able to penetrate the feeder. He has hit the feed button once (but you can lock the button by holding it for 6 second or until the red light comes on). He also pull the metal liner out but not a huge deal since the plastic bowl stays in place.I will say the app is not intuitive. I also would have liked a video on set up but couldn't find one online. Make sure you’re not just connected to 2.4g BUT ALSO connected to Bluetooth. I spent way too long trying to connect it not realizing my Bluetooth wasn't turned on (my bad).ALSOTo schedule feeding times you can hit every day of the week, I originally was trying to select each individual day and then ran out of feeding slots which I was frustrated with until I figured out how to schedule daily times.So far I'm happy with this product I love the customization of portion sizes and how often you can schedule feeding times. I'm hoping to get my chunky boy more used to free feeding by feeding him just a little bit multiple times through out the day.Worth the initial frustration with the app!
We used to have problems with our cat over eating, and vomiting, so we bought the prior version. It has worked very well, is reliable, and solved that problem. I like that it plugs in for long term power, but also has battery back up. The voice recording feature has trained our cat to know when the food is coming, and is a nice customization.Recently, when we needed a second unit for our vacation home, I was planning to buy the same one again. But I was happy to notice this model that has smart phone/app integration. I definitely think that the upgrade is worth it. If I had any criticism of the original unit, is that the programming was a bit annoying. In the other model we have, you have to use a small LCD screen and a few buttons to cycle through the controls, like a old timex watch. I like having the set up on phone, and also being able to give extra feedings from my phone. The company did offer 20$ gift card to write a review, but the above is my honest opinion and recommendation
One of the best purchases of the year for me. Because of my job sometimes I'm on the road and now I'm happy knowing that my cat's food time won't be missed.Pros:Easy to cleanCool and beautiful designCompact so it fits on every cornerWorks great on batteries (even if there's no wifi the scheduled time won't be missed)Easy to install and set upCons:Food portions sometimes are a little less (not a deal breaker)If your cat is very curious you should secure the lid since it can be knocked and spilledGreat idea and excellent results. Very impressed with this product.
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.
Short and sweet…was easy to set up, works exactly as described. My cat loves it!
Works great. My cats love the fountain abs stopped trying to drink from the sink. Nice to be able to keep them and they hear my voice when not home.
We went out of town for a few nights and had friends checking in on our two kittens. Thanks to the automatic feeder and fountain, we never had to worry about them going hungry or thirsty. They've always loved drinking running water from sinks, showers, etc, but now they're obsessed with their very own water fountain.
I recently bought the 4L WIFI Pet Auto Feeder & 2.2L Water Fountain Bundle and I love it! Both products are a big upgrade to what I used to own for my cat! The fresh, filtered water provided by the water fountain is fantastic. After 3 days of my cat side-eyeing it, he finally understood what to do and now I think he loves it! The automatic feeder is really convenient and keeps dry food fresh and supplied (remotely)! All in all, I highly recommend these two PetLibro products!!
Everything is exactly as pictured. Our cat loves it. It makes it much easier to feed him so hes not constantly chasing us down for food
