Cat Mate Automatic Pet Feeder with Digital Timer is designed to feed your pet at his normal meal times when you are away. Dry cat food is kept fresh in five easy-to-clean compartments by a rotating lid and refrigerated by twin ice packs. (They will only keep canned food fresh for only 1 to 2 days due to the melting of the ice-packs.) Suitable for cats and small dogs. Dimensions: 11" x 11" x 3".


  • Easy to use digital timer allows you to program individual meal times - up to 96 hours later
  • LCD Display shows all programmed feeding times
  • 5 food compartments: each holds up to 11.6 oz. of food (enough for two cats or a small dog)
  • Twin ice packs help keep food fresh
  • Easy to clean - dishwasher-safe lid and bowl
  • Tamper resistant to pets
  • May be easily fastened to a wooden board for extra stability (optional)
  • Requires 3 AA-batteries (not included), which will give over 12 months operation

Super Convenient. Takes Stress Away From Your Day!
June 3, 2011
Works great. Nifty. I use it everyday and fill it back up again every few days. The company that makes it I believe is the only one who allows for ice packs to keep the food cold. Only con, is that the ice packs that come with it need to be constructed so they will keep the food cold around 5 days rather than a couple days. Awesome product invention other than that. Pet Guys have great prices, too.
  • includes ice packs to keep food cold where comparable products from other manufactures don't include something to keep food cold
  • included ice packs should be constructed to keep cold for 5 days rather than a couple days

Updated Cat Mate
December 12, 2018
The updated Cat Mate rectifies several issues with the older model. Primarily it foils my little big boy (19lb) boy's ability to intimidate the older catmate into feeding him early. He could knock the older machine's clock mechanism cover off and manipulate it to uncover his food early. The newer model is much less manipulatable. It also has ready made holes to allow the base to be fixed to his eating shelf thereby keeping him from pushing it onto the floor from 3 feet up in hopes of getting at the food.

One drawback is that the cooler blocks are different shape and I will need a spare pair. Also question if the three batteries will last a whole year.

Love this version of feeder!!! I travel and work odd hours. This feeder has a digital timer you can set for 4 feedings. It was so much easier to set up than than the other manual timer feeders. I have 2 cats and 2 feeders. When the timer goes off, they open at the same time and not a few minutes apart because you have to manually set pins and barely see the timer lines.The lid snaps on tight so the cats are not able to open it on day one and eat everything! It also rotates under one opening so you can place it by a wall and not leave room for the cat to rotate around the feeder. The older version of this feeder with the pin timer was unreliable and easily opened by my cats and I had to leave them a good distance apart because the top rotates to each spot and the cats had rotate around it to eat.

A major shout out to Petguys.com...their price was the cheapest on the internet. The customer service was outstanding. I left a voicemail before they opened looking for tracking information and never expected a call back. I called again and got my answer AND someone also called me back to ask if my questions had all been answered! CUDOS
  • Easy and accurate to set up with digital timer
  • Does not make a loud noise when it opens
  • Does not take up a ton of space
  • Lid stays on securely with the press tabs
  • Great price
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Ice packs do not stay cold for more than a day. I froze the food before I left it out

This product did not work for us. It did not keep the wet food cold for more than a few house. It also needs to have space so the cat can walk around it. It would work for dry food if you can figure out the timer.

Now we are allowed to travel! Our cat's feeding times runs our life! We have been thinking about an automatic feeder for a long time, now we finally did it and can get out of the house for overnighters :-)

Love the Cat Mate feeder

This is our second Cat Mate feeder. The first lasted over 20 years! We can leave our cat for 4 days and feel comfortable knowing the feeder will work and we will return home to a well-fed/happy cat. Purchasing through PetGuys was easy and we received our feeder in a few days.

This product allowed me to leave my cat home for several days and it worked perfectly. Marmalade had no reservations regarding eating from the unit and it's easy to use and clean.

Kitty Peace of Mind

I have been looking for a way to make sure my cat is fed when I go away on weekends and this fits the bill! I set two of the timers to go off each day and my cat is happy and well fed. The price was a little steep, but it saves me from paying someone else to check on the kitty.
  • Convenient and efficient way to feed a pet while you are away.
  • I found it odd that the feeder just stops when it gets to the last opening. It took me a few minutes to figure out that you kind of have to wind it up before use. But once I figured it out, it's cool.
