Bought 2 of these a couple of months ago, set them up for trial run for vacation feeder over the weekend, worked great, threw the boxes out June 10th, that evening one stopped rotating. No receipt...no box...not happy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Pikr Cats figured out how to turn the feeder
I write this not only to let other pet owners know about a potential flaw, but to provide feedback for the company.
I really loved this feeder and had one for a long time with my first cat without issue. It let me go on weekend trips without worrying about someone having to come watch him. When I got my second cat, I also got a second feeder. It worked well the first weekend trip I went on, but after the second trip, both cats had figured out how to turn the bowl with their paws. This is very frustrating as it negates the point of an automatic feeder and I feel like I spent the money for no reason.
In the future I hope there is some sort of locking mechanism or, at the very least, a stiffer gear for the feeders. I did very much like this product until two curious and food-motivated creatures thought their way through it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AnnaArtigaCom Love it, except one issue
Pro's: 1 cup auto dispensed multiple times daily for 5 days. Special Flat Freezer Pack Area under the bowl to add pet safe freezer pack which keeps canned food fresh for 10 hrs max! Dishwasher safe bowl to be washed once daily, because of the moist canned food. Controls inside the locked lid area. Cats have not been able to break into the closed compartments.
Con's Cat can yank and knock it off counter for dogs to help chew it open! Duracell D Batteries Only Last A Couple Months For Twice A Day Dispensing!
Wishes: It needs 7 days of 1 1/2 cup dispensing to be more effective for multi-cat or mixing canned with dry foods.
Funny Story: My tech savy Jack (cat) turns on the O'Cedar swiffer and my printer and plays with them, so I am glad controls are on the inside of this feeder, lol

I bought the 5 meal feeder several years ago for my cat.
1. The 5 meal programming was easy to use and worked well.
2. Food tray easy to clean
3. Construction was sturdy for cats.
4. Motor did not turn/advance tray completely to next slot.
5. Liked ice pak slot option under feeder tray.
6. Would love to see a feeder that has additional features such as airtight/fridgerated/with combination battery and electric plug. Though I know this will never happen.
