It is such a convenient little thing! If you are out and not home until late don’t worry the cats won’t have to get fed dinner super late. This thing has feeding times you can program and you can even set the portion size! I love this thing!
The dual system hit the key points we needed to control the amount of food given throughout the day, have battery backup, not be exceptionally noisy, and have two eating spots.
Two points that could move the product up to great:
1) We use small food, and the divider doesn't move far enough over to truly split the the dispensed amount more evenly between the two bowls
2) Some cats don't do as well eating so low to the ground. There is not an easy way to raise the eating surface (or the entire system) to be a bit higher.
Working very well and has a nice, sleek design! Very easy to use as well. I like the lock feature because my cats like to paw at the feeder and could change settings without the lock!
Product works well and will simplify your daily routine. Cats will adjust to being fed automatically instead of pestering the humans for more food. It does require some effort to transition away from traditional feeding because you will probably need to make minor adjustments over the first week. Once you have it dialed in, don't forget to refill it.
Instructions are easy to follow. Recording a message is not required; the slot machine effect works wonders on its own.
Love this so much. Took some time to ail it in but we are so happy we bought this product.
