    Although triangle shaped kibbles are not recommended, that is the type my cat prefers. So far I haven’t had any problems with portions sizes or the kibbles getting stuck. I really the fact that the unit dispenses small portions because I like to feed my cat many smalls meals instead of two large ones.

    This feeder is really ugly, but it really works. The timer is bulky, but it too works very well. I really like the control I have over times and sizes of feedings. So, even though it is the ugliest thing I have ever seen and super bulky, it is well worth the money because it works great.

    Don’t buy this cat feeder. It is impossible to assemble. The screws don’t fit, the instructions are pathetic, you can’t even tell where the screws are supposed to go. The chute broke when I was trying to get the thing together. I just threw it out. It’s not worth the hassle.

    I have tried several other types of cat feeders. This one is by far superior in quality, reliability and workmanship. All of the parts are made in the U.S., which I really like. I will never buy any other type of feeder again

    A bit hard to assembly, but you eventually succeed and then can enjoy this feeder.
    Now I can finally leave the house for 2-3 days without needing someone to come and feed my cat.

    This is an incredible product. I love it. Shipping was super fast. From the time I ordered it to the time my cat was using it was only three days. Assembly was easy and straightforward. I only wish I would have bought it sooner. I can finally sleep in on my days off.
