PetSafe 5 Meal Electronic Pet Feeder Review

The PetSafe 5 Meal Electronic Pet Feeder is an exceptional auto feeder for cats. It can feed your pet about 5 times per day, although only 4 of these meals are programmable. With the electronic pet feeder, you don’t have to worry about your pet overeating or not eating at all.  And with the digital timer, you can set a proper feeding schedule and can allow one hour increments between your meals.

Pros and Cons of PetSafe 5 Meal Pet Feeder


  • Automatic dish feeder with digital timer.
  • The digital timer on the product is very accurate
  • Easy assembly and programming
  • Works with both one time use and rechargeable batteries
  • Very portable if heading out of town for a few nights
  • Easily removable food tray for cleaning
  • Dishwasher Safe
  • Customized food serving intervals/servings per day


  • Somewhat noisy when it activates
  • Only works with batteries
  • No on/off switch- you must remove the batteries
  • No low battery indicator
  • Moist food will go bad quickly since there is no way to put an ice pack under tray


Recommendations for Use

  • Before leaving the pet alone with this feeder, you should try it several times. This will make sure your pet isn’t accidentally hurt.
  • In case you want the food to remain moist, you should freeze the meal 12 hours prior to installing the food tray.
  • If your cat is allergic to plastic, you should buy stainless steel bowls. Small sized bowls will fit the compartment just fine.


Verdict and Rating

According to most customers, the PetSafe 5 Meal Electronic Pet Feeder is one of the most simple pet food dispensers available in the market. It’s easy to use, and comes with various innovative features. If your pet is a heavy eater or if your pet eats moist food I would move towards a different product however. But for most small cats, this feeder will do just fine for the inexpensive price.

Customer Rating: 3.8 out of 5 Stars
