Adjustable feeding volumes - I like the minimum amount you can set - like 1-2 table spoons for day time snackies and all the way past 1 cup for full meals.
Some people have problems keeping their pets from getting more food. I took this under advisement when I purchased this item. My dog doesn't knock the unit around which would cause food to come out BUT I know she would have licked at the spout. SO I made and adjustment by cutting up a small reusable food canister I get from the deli. I made a small hood that covers the snout (using double sided tape). The hood covers the snout and almost all the way down to the bowl - leaving several centimeters for clearance so the kibble can fall loosely into the bowl.
It works! No early snacks outside of scheduling.
I had initially worried about two cats sharing the bowl, but it's fairly large (think salad plate sized), and the frequent feedings mean that they're less inclined to go ape sh#t over the food in the bowl. They more or less take turns eating what spills out because there's less food competition.
Big bonus: after only about 5 days they quit begging me to feed them. No more 3, 4 and 5am wake ups or full-tilt runs around the house. They just go about their important cat business with the understanding that the kibble god will provide for them when they need it.
I was initially hesitant to shell out this much money for a pet related product, but I am very glad that I did. I'm happier and so are my cats.
I have now had this feeder running daily since 2014. I have changed the batteries once in two years. I have never had a problem with this feeder. It's easy to fill and clean. The bowl is large enough for two cats to share (provided they like each other). It has a useful feature to crank out an extra feeding whenever you like, without messing around with the daily settings. My cats are relatively well-behaved and they have never knocked it over or raided it. Overall, I'm very pleased with this purchase.
Old Review: Almost awesome
Works great so far. We've had it for about a week and it seems pretty reliable for our uses. We're feeding a cat who tends to gulp down her food & then throw up. This feeder has a useful feature for spreading out a day's worth of food evenly over the course of the day, so the overall amount she gets to eat during the day is plenty, but the cat doesn't have access to too much at any one time. She can knock out a few pieces here & there from the spout if she tries, but since they come out only a few at a time, it's still an effective device for preventing her from wolfing down a whole bellyfull of food and then horking it up. The plastic is rubbery and tough, and the lid snaps on, so the whole thing is pretty well cat-proofed. Also, the bowl snaps into the base, so it can't get knocked away from the spout. There are only two negative things about it: the noise it makes and the batteries it takes. The noise is downright startling and pretty loud. On the other hand, it's a pretty good backup alarm clock because when it starts going in the morning, there's no way to sleep through it. It takes 4 C batteries, with no option for a wall plug. In my opinion, that's just silly. It has to run all day, every day, so it should at least have an optional wall plug.

Not very sturdy or my cat is too smart. She can get food out any time by reaching in. It comes apart easily and food goes everywhere.Published 10 months ago by Amazon Customer
