If you are a pet parent, you know how it is when you are away from home. You have all your mind fixed on how your pet would be back home toiling for water and food. Automatic pet feeders are a great solution for this particular issue. There are a variety of choices in the market but if you are looking for an affordable and simple-to-use accessory, the Cate Mate is a solution for you.
The Cat Mate automatic pet feeder by Pet Mate, a renowned manufacturer of pet supplies, comprises two compartments which open to feed the pet at a specified time. Each compartment holds 450 grams of wet food.
There is no smart functionality, as you’d expect in accessories today, rather the Cat Mate has simple timers that open up each lid on the set time interval. There are separate timers for each lid that can be set for up to 48 hours later. One AA battery can power the unit for up to one year.
The pet feeder is simple to use, you just need to fill the compartments with food, close the lids and wind the dial to the desired time. Once the dial turns to the specified hour, the catch is released and the lid opens up automatically. In addition, there is an ice pack to keep the food fresh. It can be removed to re-freeze in between uses.
The Cat Mate automatic pet feeder is made from polypropylene and comes with removable lids and bowls that are dishwasher safe. For stability, the feeder may be easily attached to a wooden board. It is available on Aldi and Amazon for $18.
