    LINDA -- tampa, FL   8/18/2012 last. :-) The reviews were right on as far as solving the problem with the cat crying, and that cats are smart and figure out how to try to move the autofeeder to shake out more food. Very pleased - we got exactly what we expected. Extra bonus--cat's lost a little weight---we might have been getting tricked into overfeeding with all the crying in the past! :-)
    MICHELLE -- arvada, CO   11/18/2010
    This is great so far. I even called the tech support for help in programming it--worked great!
    VERN -- williston, ND   8/26/2010
    Simple to set-up and came into great use when we had a family emergency and had to leave town for a week came home cats were feed and happy. Recommend this product
    RUSSELL -- santa rosa, CA   8/25/2010
    We have been using the Pet Autofeeder for a few weeks now and it is working quite well. It was fairly easy to program, but don't lose the directions. The "screw" dispenses the food accurately.
    KATHRYN -- klamath falls, OR   7/15/2010
    We love the new autofeeder for our cat. Now, her food is spread out through the day. Mostly, it allows us to be gone over night without worry. It took me awhile to figure out the timer for the feeder. Mostly, how much food is dropped out in ten seconds. Then, I could calculate the whole day, giving our cat the total of food she eats daily. A chart of suggested feeding times would have really helped. The machine is very quiet. You only hear dry food falling into the bowl. I highly recommend this feeder.
    ANDREA -- stafford, VA   6/24/2010
    I have had my autofeeder for about 1 month and have been very happy with it. It took no time (about 4 feedings) for my 2 cats to learn the sound of food hitting bowl meant feeding time. Easy to assemble, easy to set program once you understand how it works. It takes a few tries to set the feeding amount but once you try it you can easily figure out how much "on" time it takes to give proper feeding amount. The only things I can say is a possible negatives about the design is if you move or bump the feeder some food will come out the shoot without it actually running, so if you have a smart cat they may figure that out and try to get some free food. The other thing is the feeding bowl is not very big so if you have multiple cats that feed together they will have to wait their turn or force their way in to get their share. All in all I think so far it is well worth the money!
    RAYMOND -- new rochelle, NY   5/30/2010
    Pretty easy to set up. I didn't find the timer particularly difficult to program, but it wasn't a snap, either. Main complaint: One of my cats figured out almost immediately that by banging the unit with his paws, food comes out. It's an automatic food dispenser for him, not a timed feeder.
    MARTIN -- phoenix, AZ   4/30/2010
    I think the first one I got was defective because the replacement works better. I'm very happy with Smarthomes replacement policy which didn't cost me a thing. I will definitely look here first for innovative home needs.
    MARY ANN -- san antonio, TX   4/26/2010
    Ok, it's a good feeder, works on time etc. BUT....Can someone not make a feeder that is cat proof. My cats "plunk" on the spout and get extra food out. does not help w/weight loss when they figure this out. Other than that it's great.
    Martin -- trumnasburg, New York   1/31/2010
    Used it for a few weeks, when the auger which pushed the food out stopped turning while we were out of town. Almost killed our cats. Got a replacement bottom part and the auger stopped again after 3 days. Extremely disppointed; seems to be a very poorly made product.
    JON -- fremont, MI   1/11/2010
    nice product.well built. our cage was to small for the feeder,but it was a great product.
    RICHARD -- overland park, KS   9/27/2009
    I previously purchased another feeder from a local pet store. My cat figured out how to reach up into the feeder and make the food come out. We found this one and to say the least, she is very frustrated and the feeder works amazing! The timer was a little complicated but works great.
    CAROL -- libertyville, IL   9/15/2009
    This pet autofeeder is terrific! My son's cat was fed reliably every day while my son was on vacation. The timer is easy to set, the hopper holds plenty of food, and it worked with the three brands of food we tried. The feeder is well worth the price! I took the suggestion of one of the previous reviewers and put 20 lb. weights on either side of the feeder so Monster could not move the feeder around. Great product!
    THOMAS -- sartell, MN   8/25/2009
    What a great help to the household. The cat was obsessed with food, so we now feed her eight small meals a day. Plus if we are gone for the day she is taken care of. She is a lot happier and so are we.
    PATRICK -- lasalle, QC   8/24/2009
    Works wonders.
    LORI -- edmond, OK   8/12/2009
    This is a great auto feeder. We now have our obese cats on a regulated diet. It's also great for weekends away from home; cats are fed on schedule. Timer was easier to program than I thought it would be based on reviews I had read. Battery backup is a plus since we have interrupted electrical service in our area. We've been very pleased with this purchase...worth every penny!
    TAMERA -- park city, UT   5/27/2009
    Easy to set up and works great. My cat loves being fed a little every few hours instead of just twice a day, and I love not being begged constantly. Great for going away on short trips too.
    ROBERT -- plano, TX   4/13/2009
    We are often away and have a cat that we keep outside. The feeder does an excellent job of feeding the cat during the day while denying food to roaming night anamals.
    ANDREW -- green bay, WI   3/1/2009
    This feeder is great, easy to setup and get started. Our cat loves it as he eats food 8 times a day now instead of 2 times. I just figured out how long for the timer to run so he would get the same amount of food spread out over 8 feedings as opposed to 2 feedings. No more of the cat waking us up at all hours begging to be fed. Every cat owner NEEDS one of these.
    ERIC -- alexandria, VA   12/19/2008
    pretty much exactly what I was looking for, but we did have to send one back as it was DOA. Programming is a little tricky, but not too bad, and the power cord is huge and tough to hide.
