The Petly is the perfect solution if you worry about your kitten eating too much. It’s also ideal if you are out and about a lot, and worry that your pet is waiting for you to get home in order to be fed. With this automatic food dispenser you will be happy in the knowledge that your kitten is eating regular meals while you are out of the house.
This automatic feeder for cat will provide your pet with regular meals throughout the day with the portion sizes you have programmed it to do. Your cat will be a healthier weight thanks to the Petly, or if your cat needs to lose weight then it will help with weight loss too as the portions your cat will be getting will be controlled.
The unit is very simple to use and is very easy to program. All you have to do is set the amount of meals you want your cat to receive and the amount of food you want your cat to have and that’s it, that’s all there is to it. It also has a flip up handle, which will fit comfortably in your hands, making it very portable and easy to carry.
It’s a great looking device thanks to the modern and simple design so will look lovely in your home. The pet feeder works by battery and so you can use it anywhere in your home, you don’t have to place it near a power point, which is great if you have a cat at home that loves chewing on cords. This does mean that there is no power backup as it is operated by battery.
This device is suitable for kibbles that are no more than 3/5” in diameter. If you put bigger kibbles than this in the food dispenser, it could end up jamming.
You can program the feeder so that it will provide your feline with food up to 4 times a day and the meal times will have to be at least 30 minutes apart, this setting is then repeated the next day as it keeps on repeating itself every 24 hours. The Petly dispenses a minimum of 5 grams of food, this measurement will vary though depending on the size of your feline’s kibbles. The most amount of food the Petly can give is 50 grams. You can also adjust each individual meal, so for instance if you wanted your cat to have a big breakfast but a small lunch, you can program the Petly so it does this for you.
To program the timed food dispenser is very easy. All you have to do is turn a dial, it really is that simple. Select either portion time or portion size and then enter in your choices. You can also use the manual feed option which will give you the option of feeding your pet whenever you wanted to.
The kibbles drop onto a food tray, this is a small drawer, and this drawer will need to be fully open when the Petly is in use. The food tray doesn’t open on its own automatically so you will need to open it by pushing and releasing. The food tray can easily be removed for when it needs cleaning.
If you wanted to stop the feeder at any time you can easily do it by using the on/off button. When you then switch it back on it will continue to work as it remembers the settings you have put into it. For quick use all you have to do is reset the clock.
The batteries will last for roughly 6 months. You will need 4D batteries for it to operate. There is an LED indicator that will let you know when the batteries are running out. This LED indicator will show for a week so that you have time to get more batteries before it completely stops operating.
