Rated 3 out of 5 by 2smartcats Cats can paw food out
The feeder works great and is able to space our cats feedings out to 3 times a day. I also like that it notifies you days before the battery is about to die.
It doesn't work great for us though because our cats figured out that they can paw at the bottom dish piece to remove it, and then constantly paw at the dispenser for food to fall out. So they're getting fed 3 times a day, plus little pieces all day and night

I got two of these feeders for my boxers. Not only does it shortchange them on their portions, half the time it doesn't dispense the food at all. I want to return them but can't find the receipt.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Valla123456 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 4 out of 5 by catdude86 Works well
Works as one could expect however my cats figured out how to paw at the top of the shoot to release a little bit more food whenever they wanted. The dispensing tray is also fairly easy to knock out of place. However, with that being said, it does still work and is easy to set up and program. Would work if you plan on taking a few days away and need something to dispense food while away.
