How do I refill the Catit PIXI Smart Feeder?
Simply open the top lid by rotating it counterclockwise, and pour dry cat food into the reservoir. Place the lid back on and rotate it clockwise until you feel it lock into place. Immediately after filling the reservoir, press the nose button a few times to make sure the food pellets travel all the way down to the dispenser. This will ensure food is dispensed correctly in the first few feedings.
How do I insert backup batteries?
On the bottom of the device is a battery compartment. Open it using a Phillips screwdriver, and insert 4x C/LR14 batteries (not included). These provide power to the feeder (approx. 58 hours on average) in case of a network power failure. Put the lid back on and screw it closed.
If my internet connection fails, will the feeder continue serving meals as scheduled?
If you have successfully set up a feeding plan when your internet connection was still live, the feeder will continue to serve meals as scheduled, even when the internet is down.
How do I turn on the sound on the Catit PIXI Smart Feeder?
You can enable audio by toggling the slider in the app settings. With audio enabled, a beeping sound will notify your cat when food has been served.
My cat is a binge eater, can I use the feeder to make them eat slower?
If your cat tends to eat too quickly, we recommend scheduling multiple small feedings to be dispensed over 15 minutes. This will help slow down your cat’s eating pace.
