I looked at several models of auto-feeders for my two outside cats who live in our heated garage. They are FOOD FEINDS, so when we go out of town, I had to have someone come over at least every other day because they will eat until they blow-up if I simply fill a bowl and leave. This feeder was the solution. I love it. I don’t know if I could have gotten away with the less expensive model, but I can say this is VERY solid and well made. The battery back up has come in VERY handy, too. I don’t use an auto feeder for my inside cat, but I can definitely see the attraction. (and my cats still love me)
“We have been using the Pet Feedster for almost a year an a half and it works flawlessly. Setup was easy. I periodically measure the food output and it is always accurate and consistent. We have a puppy that destroys EVERYTHING, but she is not able to do any damage to this feeder. It seems to be well made with quality components.
My wife was skeptical but now she loves it.”
“I tried three other units, in fact I had two Le Bistros and they were terrible, they jammed CONSTANTLY! So I decided to try another brand and got an Ergo and even that jammed periodically. I’m really excited about my new Pet Feedster and not having my dog waking me up in the early morning.
1). It does what it claims
2). I don’t need to be woke up every morning 2 hours earlier than I need to by the dog
3). …I love this thing!”
Having now tried FIVE different automatic cat feeders, I can tell you that the Pet Feedster is hands down the best.
The Pet Feedster is undoubtably expensive, but for the price you get a far superior product. All in all, if you’re looking for an automated cat feeder, this is (in my opinion) the best on the market by far.
I’ve been through 3 different timer-based feeders and none came close to reliability as yours. No jams! Love the food chamber theory. I’ve told a few of our dog owner friends how great the Pet Feedster is.
Absolutely worth the price! Programming feeding sizes and timings isn’t necessarily intuitive, but the instructions are straightforward. I have found it to be reliable, accurate and consistent, keeping my mind at ease while I’m away from home for a few days. Tried 2 different versions of the “Petmate” brand, and returned them both before buying this Pet Feedster. I am very happy with its quality and would recommend it to any pet owner!
