Changed my mind...
After years of considering whether to have a cat or not... suddenly I got two! Realising that I might still want to go out or away... this seemed like the ideal choice. But before it even arrived I'd decided that I should have got a fancier one... spoke to customer service, who were brilliant. They refunded me, asked that I donated this to an animal charity... which just leaves reviewing the fancy one!!

Absolutely love this product, the dogs love it too many thanks
Does what it says on the tin!
Having had issues with electronic feeders before, I wanted a mechanical feeder - less to go wrong! I've got both the single & dual units and after well over a year in use, have never had a failure to open. Easy to set as numbers are clear. My only gripe is, if you're using them daily, it would be nice to have a 2nd ice pack for each section so you could have one freezing while using the other (luckily I have now found ice packs that fit). Highly recommended
Great! But numbers could be painted on better.
I'll get the critique out of the way first. I wish the numbers didn't rub off after a few weeks. I also wish the arrows were easier to see. It would also be nice if the time could be set by moving the dial backwards. Be aware that the rubber feet leave little lines on pale flooring when the cat nudges it. But these are mere niggles. This feeder as greatly improved my cats quality of life. Her digestive system is a little twitchy. She's also a "gobbler". She used to be sick most days until I decided to spread her meals out to roughly every 6 hours. I set the feeder to release kibble at roughly 2am and 2pm. I sometimes put the Snack Ball Cat Toy inside so that she has to bat it out and chase it. She is sick much less often. I also have no doubt that she enjoys "the chase". This adds some enrichment to the hours we're not around. The feeder also helps when she is with relatives during holidays. They can put her wet meals in with the cold pack and set the timer. That way, if their routine is different to hers, she still gets fed on time. The chambers are deep enough to take a small ramekin bowl filled with liquid. This makes them very versatile. I plan on buying more of the treat balls so that I can split her nighttime meals between both chambers for even more chasing fun!
Reliable and solid, does the job.
I have found this to be very reliable. It goes off when set and despite my cat pushing it across the floor and making valiant attempts to break in, she has not yet succeeded! My cat has a tendency to beg for food so recently I have used it to feed her all her meals so she stops associating me walking into the kitchen with food. It comes with freezer packs so it can be used in the summer and the food kept cool. Good value.
does what it says
appears to be silent operating, popped open easily,no chance of it locking again accidently. only down side is the tray is easy for the cats to pull out and if the cooler pad is in they may have a chance of biting it. maybe a touch of blu tack just to secure the bowl!!
