Now you don’t have to feel guilty when your life keeps you busy! This handy feeder conveniently allows you to leave your pet at home without worrying about him missing meals or snacks. Fill up the 5 one-cup portion sections and set the timer for when you want your pet to get fed. The tray will rotate at the scheduled mealtime to deliver your pet's mealtime exactly when he needs it. The 5-meal feeder is perfect for vacations-- your pet-sitter will thank you! It’s also a great option for pets who need to eat several small meals each day. The automatic feeder is easy to use and will have your pets running to the sound of the feeder instead of running to wake you up every morning for breakfast. Simply put in the 4 D-cell batteries (not included), fill the feeder trays with dry food, and set the times for when your pet needs to eat. You can set up to five feeding times. Feed your pet once a day for five days, five times every day, or any other combination.
