I’m always concerned if I have to be gone from home during mealtimes because I have five cats. I don’t free feed, but I do add measured amounts of kibble twice a day to canned food.
The WOPET F03 automatic feeder includes a number of unique characteristics. First, you can change the amount it dispenses from 1 to 39 portions, however one portion is probably less than a tablespoon for a kitten. I had to increase it to 10 parts to bring it near to the 3/4 – 1 cup I feed it twice a day.
You have the option of dispensing up to four times each day. If you wish to manually increase the amount in the bowl, there is a manual option. Because you can only adjust the amount by cycling upward with the button, I’m guessing you’ll have to cycle through all 39 levels if you want less portions per meal.
✅ Best WOPET Automatic Pet Feeder
Works and looks great — TIPS for multiple pets – The functions of meal control, portion, and time are easy to program and dependable. The battery back-up works perfectly. The most amazing feature is the solid build and security of the unit. It has been attacked by raccoons, clawed, bitten, unplugged and dragged around the deck repeatedly. Other than scratches on the case and the logo wearing off, the feeder is in perfect shape. It has never been opened by the pests. The food inside remains inside. The battery backup retains the settings when plugged back in. Although the feeder is impregnable to the pests.
There’s no minus button to allow you to adjust the setting downward But presumably, once you have it set the way you want it, you won’t need to adjust it.
It also has a voice recorder feature, the purpose of which escapes me, unless it’s to announce to your cats, in your (distorted) voice, that it’s dinnertime. (Even if you don’t record a message, you’ll hear the dead air of the recorder when the unit dispenses.)
But the actual dispensing is so noisy that it seems superfluous–cats will get the idea after hearing it dispense a few times. Plus, I found it rather annoying that the recording plays multiple times per dispensing–like if you have it set for three portions, you’re apt to hear the recording three times.
(I never quite figured out how the configuration works, as it wasn’t ten times for ten portions, but it was at least three times.) There doesn’t seem to be any way to turn off the recording feature altogether.
The unit went together fairly easily, though it took some brute force to get the “head” completely centered. And then once it was in place, it took some doing to get it to come apart so I could clean it.
In fact, the manual says nothing about how to clean the unit, which is something you’ll want to do after using it for a while, as even dry food leaves residue. You can remove the “head” if you persevere, but there doesn’t seem to be an easy way to clean the compartment inside the unit itself.
The cat head is cute, though it looks kind of angry–like a cartoon cat.
My cats started eating from it almost immediately, so getting them to accept it was not an issue. Whether this is the automatic feeder for you depends on your budget and the features you want.
