PetMate LeBistro Automatic Pet Feeder – Product Evaluation
I have owned my PetMate LeBistro Automatic Pet Feeders for a little over a year now. I have two of them. I do not use them when I am at home but I do use them when I travel. Even though I have a pet sitter who checks on the cats and spends time with them when I am away, having the automatic feeders makes her job easier and provides comfort for me in knowing that they can continue to stay on the schedule that they are used to even when the pet sitter is unable to visit at a specific time during the day.
I like the fact that the pet feeder runs on batteries. There is also a warning light that indicates when the battery power is running low and the batteries need to be replaced.
I also like the fact that the product is easy to take apart for cleaning. The food dish and the food hopper are both easily detached and can be cleaned quickly and easily. The food dish can actually be moved by my cats though and there have been a few instances where the dish was moved and the food was dispensed on the floor instead of into the bowel.
The automatic timer on the PetMate LeBestro Automatic Pet Feeder is relatively easy to set. However, I always have to refresh my memory about how the timer works when I reset it. So, I would recommend keeping the owner’s manual in a convenient place for when you need to refer to it.
The PetMate LeBistro Pet Feeder can only dispense dry food. It cannot be used for wet or moist foods, home-cooked meals or other feeding options. However, I do not know of any other automatic feed dispensers that dispense anything other than dry food either.
Who Can Benefit from Using the PetMate LeBistro Automatic Pet Feeder?
The PetMate LeBistro Automatic Pet Feeder is a good option for anyone who wants their pet to be fed at times when no one is home to feed him.
