I set it up the night before we left. And this is how much Godiva loves it – she wouldn’t let me take pictures of it without her being in them! Spoiled cats I swear! I jokingly said she took to it like a kid in a candy store. It was a food buffet!
The water system is low tech – Just fill it up and they have water constantly. This is great since Graysie is a water cat – she will drink water over eat food. Before I was constantly filling their water dish several times throughout the day.
Now the feeder is a bit more technical – but not hard to figure out. I was super happy to see that it took batteries. My concern was if it was a system that you plugged in and the power went out while we were gone – they would go without food. Storms tore through our area while we were gone, so this actually had a potential of happening. Instead it takes a few D batteries, you choose your feeding amount and times and they were off! I left it on the standard settings – the girls received 1/4 cup food at 6 am, noon and 6 pm each day we were gone. I loved that it kept giving them fresh food throughout the day – and so did Godiva! Another benefit – the food reservoir is sealed – bugs and moisture cannot get in and ruin the food before it gets to them.
Our cats are pretty high tech now, but I love the fact that I can leave for a full week and know they are taken care of. Plus they were happy within their home and weren’t bothered by “strangers”. This gave me a peace of mind while we were gone, and we weren’t worried how they were doing or if they had what they needed. That doesn’t mean we didn’t miss our furry friends of course!
Petmate would like to offer one of my readers the same peace of mind and ease by winning an automatic feeder and a water system for their pets!
