Pros: Easy way to provide meals when you are not home
Cons: Batteries are impossible to remove, annoying loud constant ticking noise, not cat-proof
The review posted by Marc999 is for the PetSafe 5 compartment feeder, not the 2 compartment one as shown for this product review.
I used the 2 compartment feeder for a previous cat. It was a good way to provide 2 meals for my cat while I was at work. However my cat was able to pry off the lids to get to the food inside. The manual timer can only be set in approximate 2 hour increments and makes a loud annoying constant ticking noise. The only way to stop the ticking noise is to remove the batteries which are impossible to remove without severely pinching your fingers or the use of a blunt knife. I eventually bought the 5 compartment feeder which works so much better: quiet, digital timer that can be programmed to any time, cat-proof.
