The 8-day Auto pet feeder can be used to feed pet wet food, dry food and pet medication. It is designed with an eight compartment feeder bowl and has a unique digital timer with voice recording. The 8 day feeder digital timer features a manual override/test switch and up to 8 programs per day with daylight saving feature. The timer can be programmed at for the exact feed time unlike other feeders which have 6, 12 or 24 hour incremental feed settings. This enables feeding the pet 8 times per day for 1 day, 3 times a day for 2.5 days, or 2 times for 4 days or 1 time a day for 8 days etc. Hence pet meds can be given to the pet at the exact time. The timer records the voice and plays it back at every meal time. The 8-day Auto pet feeder works on AA batteries and is compact and portable. 8 Day feeder holds over 96 ozs of food - 12 ozs of canned food or dry food per compartment. It comes with a removable bowl for easy cleaning and ice packs to keep food fresh for up to 12 hours. The feeder works best for small dogs and cats that have to be fed small quantities of dry/wet canned food alone or mixed with medication. Veterinarian recommended.

To address a few issues:
1) I did have motor issues on my first feeder, but ergo replaced it and it has been working great since
2) My cat tried to get into the feeder the first night, but once she realized she couldn't , she hasn't tried since. I have a fairly normal sized 10 lb cat.
3)If the recorded voice is getting static-y or the compartment isn't turning fully - it's time to change the batteries
4) If the feeder didn't go off at the appointed time, it's most likely that it's not in "autofeed" mode
The feeder is awesome. It's locked down with a screw so he can't break in to other compartments. It has freezer packs to keep wet food cold. I'm ok setting out 24 hours worth of wet food - but if absolutely needed I think 48 hours of wet food would be ok as long as you have the feeding schedule down to your kittys grazing needs. The recorder is a great feature as well. My kitty is now trained and comes running when he hears it.
Other things this feeder has fixed.... No more begging at the fridge. No more waking me up at 4am hungry because he ate everything the night before. He is also a few pounds over weight when we started. He has lost 1.5 pounds so far. Oh, and he is feeling awesome with his new feeding schedule and prescription food.
My wishes for the next model would be to have the base spin as opposed to the lid. If your setting up all 8 compartments you basically have to put this giant bowl in the middle of the room.
FYI though, the feeder can only be set at a different time within a day. I don't think the thing will help if you plan on leaving one box for a day and use it for 8 days (or can it?) I don't know if I'd use one box a day though, considering I've added pureed veggie to his diet...the ice packs in the bottom won't keep it fresh for more than a week for sure.
Overall I have to give it a four, okay, maybe a three and half stars because it makes my cat less depending on me as a food source (unless it's the first meal of the day). And it does help if you're out all day and still wish your cat to be fed on time while you're away. :)
