As the sections aren't sealed the cat could smell the food and managed to take off the outer cover and get at all the food straight away. I have a different type of auto feeder also which is much better as it drops the food into the bowl and has never been broken into by either cat

Cats can get into the feeder
First time I left this out I came back and my cats had managed to open it and ate half a days worth of food.

I'm a care assistant and I do 12 hours shifts it really help me to stop worried about my cat meals because not always I can fully reliable on family and friends. We love it. I also bought extra ice packs to safe time.
Works perfectly, would buy again.

Breakproof feeding machine suitable for 2 cats
The C500 Automatic Feeder is everything I've been looking for in a pet feeder.
I have 2 C500s both working at the same time, since I have 2 cats.
They are so accurate that if both are set to the same schedule, they both open at the exact same second (unlike other machines)
Feeding time can be adjusted with an accuracy of 10 mins.
I only use it with dry food and the cats can smell it and try to break in. So far nothing has happened between mealtimes, except for a few scratches on the feeder.
The motor is great and strong enough that the cats can't turn it further to get extra food.
It turns relatively quietly.
All in all, a good machine perfect for dual feeding.

Best automatic feeder
I have 2 of these for both my cats. Super easy to use, cat-burglar-proof and above all - also suitable for wet food.
Up to 4 meals can be programmed.
Definitely would recommend - easy cleaning and filling

GREAT - finally one that really works
Works flawlessly. My 6 year old cat started using the machine at once and has given up trying to break into it after a few unsuccessful attempts.
Programming it is very easy and fast, which means you can remove the batteries when not using it for long periods of time.
Cleaning is also really simple. Food remains fresh for several hours even without a cold pack.

I like the feeder. It's only a couple of days since we got it and it's helping. Very easy to set up and the batteries would last for about 10-12 months (Mentioned on the manual)
My only complaint is that we cannot buy more icepacks by itself at the moment. The current icepack last for about 4hrs which is kinda pointless when you have about 10hrs between the main meals.
Very easy and reliable
I've bought a few automatic feeders for my cats: they were difficult to programme and weren't reliable. This feeder is easy to programme, difficult to break into and is very reliable.
As the first tray is already open it allows you to prepare 4 meals to be given out at 4 times a day.
The compartments are large enough and it's the compartments that rotate, not the cover.
There's also a battery warning that tells you when the battery is low. GREAT!
