PetSafe Electronic Pet Feeder
The PetSafe Electronic Pet Feeder is a great way to make sure your pet gets fed on time, every time. The feeder holds up to 5 meals of up to 1 cup in size. This feeder is also available in a 2 meal version. The meals can be either wet or dry food. The electronic timer can be set to feed your pet up to five times in a day. The polypropylene construction makes this feeder very durable and able to stand up to your pets. The locking top prevents them from getting at their next meal too early. The food tray itself is dishwasher safe, eliminating one more chore from your daily routine.
This feeder operates on 4 D-cell batteries. The PetSafe Electronic Pet Feeder is approximately 13 by 16 inches, and is 4 inches in height. PetSafe covers this feeder with a 1-year limited warranty.
Customers who purchased this pet feeder report varying initial reactions by their cats. The unit makes whirring type of noise when it is opening the next meal, and some cats run away. They quickly realize that noise is associated with their food, and in a day or two will be eagerly waiting by the feeder when meal time arrives. The batteries have been reported to last for months at a time, unlike other popular feeders that are powered by a single 9 volt battery that lasts just days. In fact, one reviewer reports changing the batteries just once in three years!
If your pet is overweight, feeding them several smaller meals per day is recommended by veterinarians. An automatic pet feeder is the perfect way to make sure they get the correct amount of food at the correct time throughout the day.
This feeder is great for either cats or small dogs. Cats especially like to let their owners know when it is feeding time. If you are a cat owner you are probably familiar with being woken up and yelled at by your cat if they think it is time to eat. The PetSafe Electronic Pet Feeder eliminates this annoyance because your cat will very quickly realize this little machine is now in charge of presenting them with their next meal. This means more rest for you!
