I’ve been considering this one, seems to have largely favourable reviews:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JFCML59

Says it holds 1.5kg/3.3lb, which is close to a month of food for an average size cat. So as well as not having to dispense the food yourself, you only have to top it up occasionally.

There are quite a lot on the market, with varying capacities, with or without smartphone app control, etc.

Our cat smudge found he could wedge his paw up there to flip the wheel to get food. He would sit there all day just going at it. We finally replaced it with one of these and with no access he just sits there and waits.

PETKIT Automatic Cat Feeder,… https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JFCML59?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

This is what I bought but disclaimer! This works great for me because my cats eat the same food and the same portion of food. They don’t always go to the same feeder… usually whatever is closer. So if one of your cats has prescription food the chip feeders might be better because only the cat with the chip can get to a certain feeder.

Recently we bought this one from Amazon to supplement our other feeders. Couldn’t find any reasonable machines with good reviews that worked with GH so decided to try this one with their own app. As other reviews mentioned the app is a little bit janky and somewhat unnecessarily difficult to set up. But we did get it eventually set up and can now feed from anywhere with the touch of a button. Late coming home one night so we dispensed half a cup of dry food. We also have it programmed to automatically dispense a midday snack every day. Our intelligent cat now knows the sound of it dispensing and will literally run at it like a cheetah when it does. Portions range from 1/20th to half a cup I believe. One reviewer said you could make it work with IFTTT but I don’t really see how that’s possible. The creator says they are ‘working on eventually’ getting GH compatibility.

Tax up front

Does anyone have a recommended automatic feeder? I’ve had this one for over a year and 90% of the time it’s fine but then every now and then it stops working and it’s so frustrating trying to fix it. The app directions to reconnect/reboot it are in broken English and usually you can tell what it wants to do but sometimes not.

Long story short I can’t connect it now so can’t set up the auto feed schedule/feed from my phone and am in the market for a new one. Of course it happens as I’m returning to office so would like to get one sooner than later.
