How To Setup The Pet Feedster Automatic Cat Feeder

Last week we received the Pet Feedster automatic cat feeder, and we decided to do two videos review, one unpacking the unit and another assembling it.

The reason we made two videos, is that this automatic cat feeder is a small machine, and we want to make sure our readers can easily have their pet feeder set up and good to go. Of course we are testing this unit and will be sharing our view on our third video (to be release mid November).

Once you have unboxed and assembled the cat feeder, it is time to set up the timer and food dispenser.

It took us about 10 minutes to set up the timer and adjust the portion sizes (we tested a few times to make sure it would dispense the proper amount).  Overall, programming the device was no harder than setting a digital alarm clock. :)
