Sharper Image’s automatic wet food feeder for cats is an innovative product which features a motion sensor lid that is activated when your pet gets close enough.
Between feeding sessions, the lid remains closed which helps protect your pet’s food from external elements such as insects and dust, as well as prevents the food odor from contaminating the entire house.
This unit works for both cats and dogs and is powered by two AA batteries which are not included in the box.
How the Sharper Image Automatic Pet Dish Feeder functions
The lid, as stated above, stays closed between feeding times and only opens when your pet is within the motion sensor’s reach.
When your pet is close enough, the lid (which is formed by 2 sections that slide apart) opens, then closes a few seconds after your dog or cat is done feeding.
The Dish Feeder with Motion Sensor by Sharper Image works as advertised, though its effectiveness will largely be based on your pet’s size.
In general, the unit works best with larger pets as they will have a much easier time reaching the food inside the deep bowl.
The unit’s automatic open-and-close lid mechanism keeps the smell of your pet’s food container which is great for those who live in smaller spaces, while also keeping pests such as ants out.
This unit is perfect for bigger sized pets who do not require a feeding schedule, and who are not easily frightened by the motion sensor.
Cat food will last about 6 days, and dog food will last about 3-4 days, but it is wise to get into the habit of checking the levels regularly to avoid it becoming empty
