√ I recommend this automatic feeder, especially to:

  • Docile cats not obsessed with food
  • Cats that need one regular meal every day
  • As a complement to a specific diet for your pet
  • To complement other automatic feeding systems.
  • If you want to feed two cats (one feeder each) that cannot eat close to each other.


X The feeder is not very suitable:

  • If your cat is very obsessed with food.
  • If you want to feed your cat wet food without being refrigerated.
  • If you want a very exact accuracy in meal time (timer is not digital).
