This unit also features the Flex-Feeder that allows for all types and sizes of kibbles to pass through the unit and into the tray which most users from the previous version had a lot of trouble with. You can adjust the Flex-Feeder kibble intake size up to 3/4′ in diameter.
Scheduling is another huge improvement with 5 programmable meals each day, but its not really user friendly if you are looking for something easy to use out of the back. The setup takes some getting use to in programming in the feeding patterns and is backed up on the system if the power goes out.
My cats like to steal food and this can be a problem, thanks to the new revised design now addresses the needs of cat owners who are little food thieves, but if the cat does some how get into the hopper they will be treating himself with the new and improved food chute size.
Most feeders have issues with jams and break downs which is directly correlated with kibble sizes, improved version this unit will prevent the usual breakdowns and jamming.
And if anything goes wrong you have a 12 month limited warranty to back you up.

What to Expect from the Pros and Cons of the Pet Feedster?
As mentioned, this is an iimproved version of the original Pet Feedster, and this unit is exclusively designed for cats from kittens to adults and also keeps those cheeky ones at bay who like to steal food.
The problem with this unit is that its not air tight and the food goes stale and makes the feeding automation a little useless for users with fussy cats
One you get the food programming to work with the right amount of portions then you are off to the races, however I found it difficult to get it to work and needed additional tinkering to get it to work.
