    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not built to last My cats got used to being fed when I get up for work at 3am during the week. Unfortunately, they didn't realize that we sleep in on weekends. I bought this feeder over a year ago in the hopes that it would alleviate the 3am wake-up call on weekends from them. It worked fabulously for the first few months, sometimes getting hung up where it wouldn't dispense all of the food. It was intermittent, so I didn't mind. After a few months however, it was happening more consistently. I exchanged it for another thinking that perhaps it was just a defective model. Now onto my second one that I have had for about 8 months... The intermittent non-dispensing started happening again a couple months ago but then a new problem- the battery light came on. No problem, I swapped out the batteries with fresh D's that I just purchased and after a week the light came on again. I swapped them out with the remaining batteries in package to see if that would help. Nope, now the light is solid and the display has disappeared. The unit does not work at all anymore. I contacted customer service (by email because they don't give a phone number on their website) and they finally emailed me back today about it. They have a suspicion what is wrong with it, but do not have replacement parts to fix it. Now I have to pay to send them a copy of the receipt and the lid to the dispenser as proof of purchase. I asked for my money back because I'm not interested in giving this feeder a third chance. I just ordered another feeder that was much more highly rated (and cheaper!) and I'm giving that a go. Don't waste your money on this poorly made contraption that had so much potential.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product, terrible design. Do NOT buy this product. Due to some terrible design flaws this product does not work. I have bought and returned 3 different units because they do not do one thing properly: the very thing they're intended to do. It does not always dispense food when its supposed to, and the portions are completely off. They put a trap door on it to stop the cat from sticking its paw up the chute, but they forgot to measure the dimensions first, so there is a gap above the trap door where food then gets jammed and also stops the trap door from opening (see photo)... hence no food being dispensed. It would be like putting a door on your house with a gap at the top... seriously?! The bowl is also ill-fitting, very loose and easy to remove. So when my cat sees the food is not coming out, she simply wiggles the bowl around until it comes out of its spot, then slams on the trap door until it becomes unjammed, dispensing an insufficient portion onto the floor. Even when there is no jam she can remove the bowl with ease and tap on the trap door until food starts trickling out. What a a train-wreck. This is such a simple concept yet these feeders just get worse and worse.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Plastic Gear Mechanism In theory this feeder sounds perfect. However, there are a couple of issues with it. First in 2 days my cat figured out that she could stick it paw in the feed chute and make additional food come out. Now, there is a hard plastic door over the food chute that often gets food stuck in it making it much easier for the cat to get her paw up in it and manipulate the feeder wheel mechanism - 1 star. Second, the feeder wheel is a set of 4 flimsy plastic fingers (image uploaded) that are easily manipulated after my cat gets her paw up into the mechanism -1 star. Finally, the as food gets low in the hopper, it dispenses less and less...to the point of dispensing maybe a tablespoon - 1 star. I was most disappointed with the plastic mechanism for dispensing the food though, because any bigger or heavier food would clog it I suspect. Please upgrade the rotating fingers to metal so that pets can't manipulate it so easily!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from stay away i bought this feeder a week ago. i travel for my job and always left food out for my cat. he now weighs 15 lbs and decided to get one of these so he wouldn't overeat while i'm gone. the first feeding was perfect. every feeding since has involved me shaking it so the food would actually come out. i emailed petmate (couldn't find a phone number) and they never emailed back. really frustrating to worry about whether my cat was fed or not. i'm returning it tomorrow and getting a turn tray feeder. this is a piece of junk considering how expensive it is.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery Hog When I first bought the system, the batteries would last for about 2 1/2 days on 1/4 cup 3x per day. I quickly switched to Energizer rechargeable batteries, and over the next few months it was down to 18 hrs. It got to the point where the rechargeables didn't work in the feeder at all, neither did cheap batteries, and expensive batteries would keep it going for about half a day. I even tracked down an A/C adapter for the feeder, only to find that didn't work either. The fact that other people indicate months of battery life makes me think I must have a defective one, but several other reviews mention the battery life too so I don't know what to think other than poor craftsmanship. As for the other problems I've read on here: The food didn't dispense evenly is true. At only 1/4 cup sometimes the food wasn't heavy enough to bump the flap open when it dropped, so I would get meals that varied in size, but over the course of the day it averaged out. My cat learned he could bat the flap and get the food that had dropped but was stuck behind the flap, so you'd often hear a lot of *bap bap bap* around feeding time. I really like the design of this feeder compared to others on the market and my review would be very different if the batteries lasted for months, but I can't endorse something that consumes its purchase price in batteries every few weeks.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed... This was working for a while, but then it start pouring out the wrong amounts, too little or too much. And our cat figured out that if she hits the bowl hard enough, more food pours out! So our little piggy was eating more than we wanted her to. So we have to hide it away until her feeding time, which defeats the purpose of this feeder...

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Highly inconsistent... I really enjoy this feeder, occasionally. We bought this so we could go away for a week at a time and not have to board our two cats. I had read other reviews about the feeder dispensing inaccurate amounts and I thought it may have been just one or two that didn't work very well. After using it for two months now I have seen it dispense the right amount very rarely. Most times it will drop three to four pieces of food... The next feeding it will dump everything else! One cat over eats and the other goes hungry because he eats smaller amounts. The ONLY reason we are keeping this is so we can go away this summer. The feedings should even themselves out over the week and a half... Shaking the machine will bring down the rest of the serving amount but then that negates the idea of having an automatic feeder!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from After using the feeder for two weeks, had to take it away because my cat was eating too much. Even though you can program the dose (my cat eats 1/4 twice a day), it will dispense too much or randomly during the day. My cat also figured out that if she stuck her paw up the feeder, more food would come out. It is a good idea but has some problems.

    Can this work for a rabbit pellets, for a pet rabbit

    Asked by: Chrisb2825
    The manufacturer has not tested this product with rabbit food. It is designed for cat or dog food specifically.
