A week-long business trip or tropical vacation doesn’t mean you have to hire an expensive pet sitter for your cat or take him to the kennel. This six-day automatic pet dish ensures that your favorite feline will be given six meals while you’re gone and will enjoy staying home alone. Each of the dish’s six food compartments holds 2/3 cup of dry food or 5-1/2 ounces of wet food. You can select feeding intervals of 6, 12, or 24 hours and the dish will accurately open to a new food-filled compartment within 15 seconds of the time you have programmed. As a safety precaution, the lid won’t rotate if it meets some resistance. The removable lid and inserts are made of durable ABS plastic so they’re easy to clean. This automatic pet dish operates on one 9-volt battery (not included) and is covered by a 30-day money-back guarantee. --Cristina Vaamonde

I have two housecats and they figured out how to break into this feeder within six hours. It consists of basically three parts: an outer gray tray which is broken into six small dishes; a rotating lid; and a central core that takes a 9V battery and rotates every 6, 12 or 24 hours. The trouble is, the central piece only loosely snaps into the base. You can work it lose with one finger (or paw) prying at the perimeter of the dish. Like I said, one of my cats figured this out very quickly.
In addition the build quality is poor, the lid does not line up very well with the feed trays so a determined cat can work her nose into the next dish, and the nine volt battery lead was so short it took a long time to get the thing plugged in.
My cats are not particularly big or strong. The packaging has a photo of a dog eating out of this tray; I find it hard to believe the manufacturer ever tested it with a dog, if cats can break it I can imagine a dog would make short work of it.
Shipping and handling cost over 25% of the price, and now that it's been broken by my cats there's not much point in waiting on hold to return it (the vendor does not have an email form to get an RMA number).
Buyer beware. Thought I'd post a review so that other people don't make the mistake I did.
1)The 9v battery lasted only about 2-3 weeks, which gets pricey after awhile to keep changing;
2)I had to time my refills of it with the next scheduled feeding (every 6 hrs for my cat), or else his schedule would be thrown off. There was no way to 'set' feeding times. It resets itself every time you refill it. So for example, if I was leaving for the weekend at 2pm, and I normally fed my cat at 6am/pm and 12am/pm, then I had to make sure I cleaned/refilled the feeder precisely at 12pm, or else it would get off-cycle. Perhaps not a big deal for most, but it was frustrating for me to make sure I was home at 12pm or 6pm so I could set it to his schedule. I thought this was supposed to make my life easier?! I found I often had to overfeed him, or let him go longer than 6 hours without a meal in order to coordinate times.
3)At times when I couldn't coordinate the feeder refill to my cat's schedule, and set it for whenever I could, when I got back from being away, there was no way to tell if he had eaten recently or not. My cat certainly wasn't telling me he was full! So I probably ended up overfeeding him at times because he is a master manipulator, and I couldn't tell if he was really hungry or just begging! I started marking one side of the feeder as TOP, then I'd have to count the number of times it rotated to see when he last ate.
4)On that same note, the feeder doesn't know when it's full or not, so if it's turned on, it just keeps rotating until the battery runs out. I once forgot to refill it, and it kept rotating, empty. My cat ended up clawing it to try to get to a full food compartment. Poor kitty! Bad mom!
5)The dial turns VERY slowly, as it is also automated, drawing on that same 9v battery, which is why it drains so fast. My cat waits for the feeder to kick in, so as soon as it starts, he's got his head stuffed into the compartment, and he inadvertently (or purposely!) pushes the lid along, which I think caused it to break.
For me, there were too many factors making it not worth replacing. I ended up spending more at Petsmart on another feeder (C50 Auto Pet Feeder) which only does 5 meals, but it runs on 1 AA battery, and you can 'set' the timer anytime you want. Only the timer draws power. The rest of it is on a simple hinge mechanism, so it swings very fast, is QUIET (unlike the first feeder, which is loud), and isn't dependent on what time of day you refill it. One other feature is that it has a finite turning radius, so when the feeder is empty, it knows, and it won't keep rotating. To restart it, I have to reset the clock, then turn the lid back around on that same simple hinge mechanism, in the opposite direction. It's REALLY easy to reset, but what's good is that if I forget to refill it, it doesn't taunt my cat with an empty bowl by continuing to rotate.
It also has a battery-life counter so you can see when your battery needs replacing, as well as a cover for the timer mechanism so your cat won't bump it or otherwise damage it.
I've had it 4 weeks now, and the same AA battery is going strong, and it's a breeze to use. I only wish it had more compartments, but I'm more than satisfied with it!
That aside this device has enabled me to get my overweight cat down to a healthy weight. I use only dry food so I didn't fill the included water bottles at first but I've found that filling them helps add weight to the unit that keeps it more stable on the floor. (I was very pleased to find they don't leak too!)
This device has gone through some abuse, drops of 6 feet, sustained sub zero temps and triple digit temps as well. It has a few scratches and some gouges but it is still perfectly usable. The unit does run slowly when the batteries are getting low. I use this as a warning to have fresh batteries ready. Battery hatch is screwed in with a small Phillips head screw that I've learned to keep a special small head Phillips screw driver with the cat food to ensure that I can get he thing open. Getting the battery to make good contact is sometimes a challenge but so far I've always succeeded. I've considered getting a second unit and setting both to open at 24 hr intervals... 12 hours apart from each other. Then I really could go 6 days without having to fill it but then as my cat has convinced me I'm a bit lazy!
