Some studies have shown that feeding your pet smaller meals over the course of the day can prevent pet obesity and lead to better health. Unfortunately, most working people can't get home to feed the cat at lunchtime, and many will forget to put out the dog's breakfast in their rush to get out the door in the morning! Make sure your pet is fed regular amounts on a steady feeding schedule with the LeBistro Portion-Control Feeder, a programmable, automatic pet feeder that dispenses portions from 1/4 cup to 3 cups at three selected times per day. The LeBistro Portion-Control Feeder is powered by three D batteries (sold separately).

Warranty: 1 year, limited
Includes: Hopper, Hopper Lid, Food chute, Feeding Bowl and Instructions.
Bought for two of the above reasons, "tired of getting up at 5:00 AM to feed cat." So far, we still wake up just to watch him wait for the food to come out...it is so funny. I hope he doesn't discover putting the paw up to get more. The other for being able to not be there for a meal time. Programming a snap! There's still always the possibility if you're away, it doesn't work (batteries) or if something goes awry. You could always change out batteries just before you leave town to be sure they were adequate. If you had a cord, electricity could go out. The only real insurance is to have someone check on things every other day or so. (Posted on 7/8/2013)
Absolutely horrible. not only did it take a long time to get here, it worked horribly. I STRONGLY recommend buying some other auto pet feeder because this one is not suited for it's price. It filled the bowl up WAYYY to high above what it says in description, and i followed the instructions. Toss this out the window and use something else, because this is absolutely HORRIBLE. PERIOD.

Good product for a great price. It is simple to use and consistent in its feedings- no glitches. The top is a little difficult to remove when it's time refill, but other than that I have zero complaints. I recommend purchasing this product. (Posted on 3/10/2011)

It was easy to program and has a large enough capacity for a few days. (Posted on 3/10/2011)
Feeder is a godsend by
Oh, if only the automatic litterbox worked this well! We have 3 cats and have this set to dispense food 3 times a day. We initially purchased it because we were going to be on vacation for a week, but have decided to just keep on using it because it works so well. Dispenses on time, just the right amount, and is nice and quiet, so our skittish cat doesn't get too jarred. Great buy! (Posted on 3/10/2011)

Must love cats
My cats used to wake me up in the middle of the night to be fed. They now associate being fed with the feeder rather than me. End result: they let me sleep all night. (Posted on 3/10/2011)
GREAT FEEDER by
I feed 3 outside cats that already lived on the property when I moved in. They were eating lizards and birds, plus they get some food from next door. Filled, it lasts 3 weeks. The cats love it, and eat fewer birds. When it is empty, the cats line up at the door and meow. They love it, and so so I. (Posted on 3/10/2011)
Love the product, Heres a thought by
My particular one seems to have problems staying on. I bought new batteries and they are not the problem. I have the 5lb version as well and it works like a dream. I like the options on the 10 lb better but if it does not always run it is worthless. I think the battery slots may be the issue. With the AC adapter this problem goes away. (Posted on 3/10/2011)
