The machine works well and is reasonably easy to set up. However my skittish cat is having a difficult time adjusting to it. I followed the instructions to acclimate my shy cat and took a lot of time with it. He was fine until it closed when his brother got too close and it was back to square one. Unfortunately it seems every time he is getting used to it, his brother comes to investigate and it closes. It has been over two weeks now and he generally only uses it when I am standing by it. Still, it works well and I am hopeful he will eventually get used to it.
We bought two for our three cats. One is on prescription food and the other 2 are on regular food and are sharing one. I just programmed enough food for both of them. If I need to slim them down more, I may have to buy a third. I started on closed mode, but use them both on open mode now because the door opening kind of freaked out my cats. They’re now eating out of them, but they were
reluctant at first.
I was excited for these because my cats are smart enough to figure out all of the other feeders I’ve tried. With one kitty who wants to eat constantly and another who lets her steal her food, this was exactly what I needed. The Problem: one unit works great just like it should; the other unit messes up multiple times a day with the alarm going off every time, waking me up, having to get up and go reset it sometimes multiple times in a row before it stops doing it (the same issue that Gracie is having, my cats are indoor only and my place is only 1700 SF, that should not be an issue in this space-has to be a defect because only one unit does it). Not what I expected at this price. If only they both worked instead of one. I have mobility issues and problems sleeping. This was supposed to help with that. The way it has turned out, it’s starting to make me worse and I’m beginning to think the stress of having to separate them might be easier on me even though it’s not on them.
It’s great when it works!! We get an error message that pops up about twice a week. Once we reset it everything is great. Just kinda defeats the purpose for having it.
I would give it 5 stars, except for two things. Firstly the size of the PFC TAG is huge for a cat, or small dog. Secondly, not being able to replace the battery in the Tag is also less than ideal. Other than that, it is a very fuss-free and easy way to provide the correct food and amount for your pet's health, and great for multiple animals. The motor is a little loud when on a hard surface, but putting a rug underneath it will mute the sound and make it more tolerable.
