Product type: Cat feederProduct description: Automatic Pet Feeder,

 2 Meals is designed to feed kittens, one or two cats or small dogs.

The food is kept in 2 compartments, which are sealed by close fitting

lids and refrigerated with an ice pack. Each compartment has a timer

that can be set for 48 hours or in case you have 2 cats to open at the

same time. It requires 1 AA battery, which does not come included.

This product has 1-year warranty.Majority of reviewers were

satisfied with Automatic Pet Feeder, 2 Meals:“It works great

 for my purposes. I use it when I’m on vacation and someone else is

 coming once a day to feed.”

“Needed to leave, for two nights, 2 cats that require timed feedings

every day. Bought two of these. I tried them out beforehand and caught

 myself making timing mistakes. So, suggest buyers do a dry run before

 leaving them for just the cats alone. Otherwise, it worked well for both

cats and they were able to have fresh food each day.”

“My cat always whines even when his food bowl is full if it is in there

 for a while. This keeps it fresh longer and he likes it better (it is healthier too).”

“I have a 17 year old kitty who suffers from kidney disease. He can only

tolerate small amounts of food at a time, so he eats more frequently. Using

the Cat Mate feeder I am assured that his food is fresh and available to him

when it’s time for his next feeding, even if I have to be away from home for

 a short period of time. Also his first meal is at 5 a.m. so I set the dish when

I’m going to bed, and he gets his breakfast right on time each morning.”

Some reviewers had following issues with Automatic Pet Feeder, 2 Meals:

Cat managed to disable the feeder

The timer is somewhat difficult to operate

One reviewer reported his cat managed to disable the feeder and also that the

timer is somewhat difficult to operate. It would be best to have a test run before

you leave your cats along just to make sure it is working properly and that your

cats will not disable it.

“Although this seems like a great, simple design, my cat was able to disable the

 feeder after two days. He was very determined to do so. I would recommend

this feeder if your cat would not be highly motivated to break in. I agree with

the other reviews that it is hard to set the exact time for the feeder to release

the food.”

Summary for Automatic Pet Feeder, 2 Meals:

Majority of reviewers were satisfied with this product, as it seems it works well.

 It is especially good if your cat is used to getting it meals at certain times of the

day or if you are leaving for a short while. One reviewer reported his cat managed

 to disable it and that the timer is difficult to operate so have a test run before you

have to leave you cats by themselves.
