Works great. Took a bit for my 4-legged kids to get used to it but they love it too now.
My 2 cat now eat when they want to. They would follow me into the kitchen and ask for more food all the time. They would wake me up at 5:00am to get food and 11:00pm. They would eat every bit of food I gave them. Now they eat when they want & leave food in the bowls. No more begging!!! It is Great.
We have 2 cats who pester us in the wee hours of the morning because they get hungry. By getting an automatic feeder, it's now no longer a worry! A bonus is that you can controlore carefully how much food cats get, making it easier to manage portions.
I now have 2 cats as my 17 year old passed away in January. I could never go anywhere for very long because the cats had ME trained to feed them 4 times a day. Free range feeding ended up with an obese 25+ pound cat.
I love watching them as the feeder turns on. They get up and run to the kitchen. Also, they don’t harass me as much because they know the food isn’t coming from me.
They get fed a small amount 4 times a day. Most people don’t eat all their food for the day in the morning or two large meals in a day.
Here’s the best part! Along with my litter robot and the cat feeder, I could actually go away and stay overnight somewhere and not have to hire someone to feed the cats and take care of the litter box.
I live alone and have anyone near to help, so this will give me freedom!
Pretty much exactly what I was after! If I HAD to dredge up a complaint it'd be that the programming is somewhat putsy but still 5 stars from us. Thank you!
