Worked really well and had peace of mind that cat was fed while away even though I had people check on her. I had to change the inside for the small feeding option, the instructions were basically remove 4 screws but omitted the rest of the steps however easily worked out and put back together, hence 4 and not 5 stars, also would love a battery power level indicator if using battery and not mains power. (You can elect to use battery as a backup or as main power source) Would recommend this feeder does the job well, sturdy construction, and you can adjust the amount of food dispensed and the feed times. Found it was easy to follow instructions in setting up the feeder. As said the feeder does come set up for larger kibble size food , for smaller ‘ kibble’ ( I have a cat) you need to change the inside rotating bit for the alternate one that is provided.
We bought this cat feeder, not because we are lazy, but because we are sick of the 6.30 am cat wake up call on the weekends. This dispenser has fixed this issue, so we now get to sleep in on the weekends again! A bonus is that the cat now gets consistent sized servings of food throughout the day, meaning he has actually lost some of the extra weight he was carrying.
Easy to set up and trouble free operation. The feeding action and sound freaked my two cats out when it delivered their meal the first time, but I think that will just take a little time for them to get used to it.
