Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Cat Mate C500 Automatic Pet Feeder with Digital Timer, 13.4 x 11.4 x 2.8. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.30 stars, and the price range is $30 - $54.

The Cat Mate C500 Automatic Pet Feeder with Digital Timer is a small disk that dispenses up to 5 servings of food in rotation. While most automatic feeders on the market only dispense dry food, this feeder has a built in ice pack in the bottom of the machine that keeps wet food cold throughout the day. The battery operated dispenser releases food at pre-timed hours automatically, saving pet owners the hassle of remembering throughout the day. This feeder also works well for dogs and can help to reduce how much food animals are eating.

Customers who have bought this product say it is a simple and easy to use machine for automatic feeding. While it does not have all the bells and whistles that others on the market have, it is simple and can also dispense wet food, which is hard to find. They say the battery operated machine is easy to set and is trustworthy to dispense the food. 

Some say the ice packs are too small and too far away from the wet food to actually keep it cold for a long period of time. Some say it can help to keep food cold for 4-6 hours, while others say it doesn't work at all.

So, happy with those results, I then bought 2 more machines on Amazon along with extra cold packs and even found extra trays directly on the company's website.

The freezer packs that come with the feeder, sit in the bottom and really do help keep the food moist for a little while longer than other feeders that dont use the ice packs.

I set it up around midnight with the ice pack and her 2 and 8am meals and take it apart to refreeze the ice pack and soak the bowls for cleaning when I wake up.

The food opening is large enough to allow for my Frenchie to eat with no problem.
