The feeders work great, but the sound and action of the rotation scared them to death for a couple of days. (Attached video is after a couple of feedings.) I reassured them with treats and laid food out in front of the feeder for one of them. They have never tried to open them, but my cats are not the smartest.. I only use Duracell batteries, and the first set have lasted for at least 2 months. I do two daily feedings. I went out of town recently and the feeders worked just fine. I would recommend this product, but be careful introducing a new routine to sensitive babies.
My husband and I needed to find a solution to prevent our cat from waking us up at 4:30 in the morning for her breakfast. We were very happy to find this automatic pet feeder! We haven't been using it all that long but so far, it's been great for us. Our cat is still getting used to it but we've seen a difference already with how she doesn't wake us up that much. It has 5 different chambers to put food in which is great for portion control since we have our cat on a diet. The feeder was very easy to program with the times we wanted the next serving of food available. When it's the next feeding time, the dish part of the feeder rotates and the next portion is available. The feeder requires 4 D size batteries which are not included. We plan to always have some around for when the time comes that we need to replace them. We could've opted for the 2-meal feeder but we wanted to make sure our cat wouldn't figure out how to open the feeder. For us, spending a few more dollars on the 5-meal feeder was well-worth it. The price we paid was AMAZING! If this feeder continues to work this well for a long time, it will be such a good investment for us. Plus, it means we get a little more sleep! I highly recommend this pet feeder to anyone with a pet who wakes them up earlier than they want to be up!
***Update 09/02/2016 - We have had this pet feeder for well over a year now and it's still working great. We switched our cat from two meals a day to four smaller meals and this feeder accommodates our needs perfectly. I was easily able to switch the times so our cat's food is ready in six-hour increments. The feeder has been durable even with our curious twin toddlers poking at it and it's still in great shape. I still believe the five-meal feeder is the best one that suits our needs since we have more flexibility and it allows us to easily change up our cat's feeding schedule without purchasing a new feeder. I still highly recommend this feeder.
This works great so far! He recognizes the sound of the motor and goes jogging into his room to get his meal. I put 1/8 cup portions in 4 of the reservoirs, and set the timer for 6am, noon, 6pm and 11:30pm.
The feeder saves the programmed times, so I don't have to reprogram each day. I didn't find it hard to program; instructions were fine. The dish rotates in a clockwise motion. It stays locked in place, and the dish doesn't turn if he paws at it.
-HE HAS STOPPED CONSTANTLY BEGGING FOR DRY FOOD FROM ME. This is the best part. He sees the feeder as his food source instead of me. No more following me around whenever I'm home. No more waking me up early in the morning. Sweet relief.
-I have complete control over portion size
-He can't get it open
-Doesn't have unnecessary bells and whistles
-When I open it, I can see that he ate all of his food, and I can see that the device worked correctly and distributed it as it should have (some auto feeders have large hoppers and you put in 10 days worth of food, but there remains the question of whether the device was consistent with portions or not. Some reviewers complained of this. There's no real way to be sure it distributed the correct amount of food if you're not home to check.)
-This is an issue only for me, but I can only put one day's worth of food in it. Other customers could do 5 days, fill each reservoir all the way up and have it operate once a day. But for my circumstances, it has to be refilled every day. If I had a hopper type feeder, I could do multiple days. But then there is still the inconsistency question about portions.
-Battery only? Size D? 4 needed? Seriously? Very, very few timed feeders on the market even have the option of using a power cord. That is crazy to me. Batteries are expensive, so the true cost of this is more like $35 + $12ish for batteries over and over for however long those last. You can use rechargeable batteries, but I don't have any currently, so that is another $50 or something to get those with a charger. At that point, I could buy a $99 feeder with AC power and not be any worse off in my pocket book, nor worried about recharging batteries or if the batteries die while I'm away. It's just nonsense.
I'd pay $60-70 for this if it had a power cable.
I deducted 1 star for no power cable option. But otherwise, this suits our needs pretty well. I took a video, but I don't see an option for posting it with this review, only photos.

The feeders are sturdy, easy to program and, when working absolutely fantastic!
However, out of five, only two remain working, the other three have all developed exactly the same issue... At some point the motor stops going round at small intervals and either stops altogether (one of them) or goes round continuously (two of them), leaving me with very frustrated cats trying to get at the food as it briefly appears and disappears (actually hilarious to watch and thankfully happened both times when I was home so I was able to be there).
So.... Very, very reluctantly I am having to search for another pet feeder as this is becoming rather expensive, I currently have three cats and am trialling other brands, main problem being most are over complicated and annoying in comparison, but I'm hoping they will last a little longer.
It's a shame because otherwise this is a perfect solution, well made and I've never had a cat manage to break them open, they just need to last a decent length of time!
So, with two cats, both very eager to eat, it was really important that the timer on each of their bowls goes off at the same time to avoid competition. Easy to do with this - just set the clock on both machines in unison and they keep exactly the same time - perfect. Our experiments with cheaper clockwork feeders were an absolute bust, with them easily being half an hour out of each other.
The solid and well thought out design means the furry ones have soon worked out they can't get in or hurt themselves trying. With four D batteries in the back, it's also fairly weighty, so doesn't get pushed around.
Feeding time is entertaining, a motorised whir announces food has arrived, and greedy cat leaps to his bowl like lighting, while fussy cat stalks over purring to herself.
Setting the timer is easy, but does need you to open the lid revealing the hidden treasure beneath. Great to stop the cats from learning the button to advance the bowl manually, not so good to keep up the charade that humans no longer provide the kibble, it's the robotic overlords you need to bug at 3 in the morning...
I love this dish so much I bought 1 for my mom and it's a life saver for her too. Her dog is fed twice a day and has meds throughout the day. There are just enough compartments (4) to fit his food and meds so she doesn't have to worry about missing anything.
The only CON is the title is deceptive (reason for deducting 1 star). It has 5 spots for food but 1 is always exposed so you can't actually use it for 5 timed feedings. Only good for 4. I only feed my dog 2 times a day so it's fine but the product name is still kind of a lie which bugs me.
Pictures are of my machine that I took while writing this review. So still in good shape after about 3 years of abuse. Just the claw marks near the opening.
Initially thought it was a battery problem, but problem persisted with fresh batteries.
I emailed PetSafe and they told me that they would put a replacement feeder in the post the same day. This arrived a couple of days later, exactly when they said it would (one hour delivery slot) and it is working perfectly.
A fault can develop with any electrical device and it is nice to know that PetSafe products are backed up by a very good Warranty if an occasional problem arises.
We would highly recommend this product. It is simple to program and use.
By the the way, our cat loves it too!
The clock system seems to keep totally accurate time, but the schedule timer can be a bit fiddly to setup. But if you don't need to change the schedule this isn't a big issue. The schedule settings can be quite versatile, but seeing as there are only four hidden trays there is not the need or all this versatility.
All in all probably one of the better automatic feeders out there.
All was well, I used it for maybe 7 or 8 long weekends but then it just stopped working. New batteries made no difference, and when I took it apart it appears the motor has stopped working.
I am not sure to replace it with the same or with a different hopper design that last for a longer period.
Beim Drehen ist er relativ laut.
Das Problem was wir mit diesem Modell haben, ist dass unser Kater sich das Spiel ein zwei Wochen angeschaut hat und nun die Fächer selber weiterschiebt wenn er Hunger hat :) also suchen wir weiter nach einem passenden Gerät. Denn hier lässt sich der Drehteller mit ein wenig Geschick leicht selber weiterdrehen.
Und das entspricht ja nicht dem Wunsch das Futter auf kleine Einzelportionen über den Tag zu verteilen.
Bis auf das ist es ein gut funktionierender Automat. Aber eben für uns ungeeignet leider.
Basically, you set however many feeding times a day you want and the tray rotates once for each feeding time, every day.
If you need it once a day, select a single feeding time and let it run. It will spin once a day ever day at that time.
If you need it twice a day, it will spin twice a day, every day, and so on.
Build seems solid enough. The latch is actually not that easy to open so no chance of the cat sabotaging it. The tray is a tiny fraction off-centre but nothing serious.
The Cat Mate C500 has a better digital display and only uses 3 AA batteries. Hmm? ?
Do you not buy this product. I do not recommend it. The previous one we had by Robert Williams I think Robert Welsh or something to that effect was far superior never failed and it was only that I dropped it that we decided to buy a new one after five yearsWe have had this one for about five months and it’s driving me nuts.
Some have mentioned its difficult to set the timer but I found it easy to do if you follow the instructions!
