Flawless Automatic Wet Cat Food Dispenser
Auto feeding machines that dispense dry food are so easy to
come by. I visited a few websites plus a couple of pet supply
stores in my area, and they all carry a pretty good variety of
kibble dispensers. But what about one measly automatic wet cat
food dispenser? No such luck!
Well the websites I checked out had pictures of some kind of
wet food automatic feeder on display. Unfortunately it was out
of stock at the time, and the vendors weren’t sure when the
next stock is due in. So I tried my luck on Amazon and was real
happy to discover the feeder I’ve had my eyes on for so long
was available there! Here’s how it looks like…
You know what, in my opinion, this thing is almost flawless.
If the manufacturer could work out a few design kinks, this
product would’ve been perfect. This feeder works fantastically
and overall, I’d say I’m pretty satisfied with its
The unit is simple to operate, solidly built, and well
secured so my sneaky cats can’t easily break into the food
chambers and steal the food inside. The timer is near precise
which is great because the last thing I want is for the food
chambers’ lids to open way too late or worse, not opening at
all thus starving my cats.
I say the timer is near precise because I noticed that
occasionally the compartments do not open according to the time
I had set. Sometimes they open 5 minutes too early or 10
minutes too late. It’s not a huge issue really since the vast
majority of the time, they open right on schedule.
To ensure long-lasting freshness of meal, this automatic wet
cat food dispenser is equipped with a removable freezer pack.
The feeder can only take in one freezer pack and you have to
place it right under the food chambers. There’s a dedicated
freezer compartment located at the bottom of the food chambers
and you just have to put the freezer pack in there.
I think the compartment’s insulation could be improved just
a tad bit more. It’s pretty decent to be honest, but if you
want the food to be kept cold for a longer period of time, you
could try placing some Styrofoam around the freezer pack
compartment. This approach works a treat!
The design kinks of this
wet food automatic feeder…
As mentioned earlier, the C20 wet food automatic cat feeder
would’ve been perfect, but it has a few design kinks so I had
to knock the overall rating down a bit. Here are the flaws that
you should be aware of.
1) This unit only
offers two automatic feedings per day because there are only
two meal compartments. Therefore, if you require more automatic
feedings per day, you’ll have to pony up for another unit. If
you ask me, a 3-compartment unit would’ve been much better.
Some of my cats require 3 small feedings of wet food.
2) The feeder’s time is not an
alarm clock style timer. The food compartments will open based
on the number of hours chosen. There’s a dial on the feeder and
it allows you to set how many hours until one of the
compartment’s cover opens up to reveal the food.
Let’s say you put in the wet food at 10am and my cat is
supposed to eat at 4pm. So what I’d do is twist the dial and
pick 6 hours and the compartment should open later at
approximately 4pm. So the timer works like a charm, but alarm
clock style would’ve been better.
3) This cat wet food dispenser
runs on a single AA battery which is awesome. Some feeders out
there require multiple batteries and that can get pretty
expensive in the long haul. However the issue here is the unit
runs EXCLUSIVELY on battery.
You can use an AC to get it running and that sucks. It would
be better if we have the option of using an AC as well in case
the battery fizzles out. Oh and it doesn’t help that no battery
power indicator is present on the unit.
Well, all in all, the product is near flawless to me, and
the price is absolutely affordable. I think there are some
units in stock, and you can check it out directly by using this
