I bought this WOPET A36 automatic feeder as part of my
two-prong approach to solve a feeding problem with one of my two cats.
Apparently my 7 year old cat developed a food sensitivity problem on top of his
already ‘over eat and purge’ problem I had been struggling with for 2 years.
After a couple of trials, I was able to narrow his problem down to a grain
sensitivity. Woo hoo! I no longer needed to clean up cat vomit 3 times a day!
Now I had to figure out a way to control his food portions without 1) having to
feed him 5x a day, and 2) not torture my other cat who had not food issues.
After looking at a few automatic feeders, I selected this one. I liked the sleek design, it had good reviews, and I liked that I could plug it in and have a battery backup. It arrived promptly and well-packaged. Other reviews had mentioned it was a little tricky to program, but one you figured out the first feeding interval, the rest were easy. I took some other reviewers advice on how to program the number of rotations for each feeding which is to measure out your desired portion size, place it in the bin, and then experiment with the number of rotations it takes to fully dispense. This approach got me into the right ball park and I continue to experiment with increasing/decreasing the number of rotations to have the proper amount for both cats.
Overall, this is well made and works as designed and has really helped get my sensitive cat on a good feeding schedule that works. The bin is generous sized for feeding cats and I’ve found that I only need to fill it up about every other week, although I check it more frequently. I definitely recommend it.
