I purchased this WOPET A36 automatic feeder before heading off on a four day trip. Normally I leave my cat at a sitter’s house she is comfortable with but this time my cat sitter was coming along so I needed something to keep the food coming while I was away. I had friends coming to give her wet food and love at her dinner time each night but was worried about the dry food; kitty is on a feeding schedule that she has memorized and would get very stressed if it was deviated from.
In the past my cat would get very upset whenever she got low enough on her dry food to see any part of the bottom of the bowl. Even if the bowl was half-full and she had just pushed the kibbles around enough to see a sliver of the bottom she would start pacing and yowling. Additionally whenever I would add more food to the bowl she would binge sometimes to the point of puking. This feeder solved all of her food stress problems and has been a great weight control tool too.
I currently have it set to feed her 1 serving every 6 hours (5a, 11a, 5p, 11p) with a double serving given at 5a. With this feed setting she generally runs out of food 5-6 hours after the last feeding meaning she is without food for an hour or so before it feeds her again. Despite this she has no stress over the dry food now because she knows the machine will always feed her at the same time. She will sometimes go sit in front of it a few minutes before feeding time waiting for it to do its thing but except for the first day she has never yowled at me to feed her more. She also doesn’t binge like before, perhaps because she knows more will always come later. This has been great for weight control too. My vet has been telling me for years to restrict her dry food diet but her behaviors made it impossible before. Now that she is getting a specific quantity each day I’ve noticed some weight loss and am looking forward to hearing what the vet has to say.
I really can’t recommend this highly enough. It has reduced stress for both me and especially the cat. It is directly contributing to her weight loss and has eliminated binge-eating and the resulting vomit. It even helps to even out her blood-sugar levels by distributing her meals evenly throughout the day.
